This small restaurant has the best omelets and eggs benedict you can find anywhere - much less in a small Mexican town. In addition to low prices, the service is very good. Cold, fresh orange juice adds to the meal.

We went here for breakfast twice. Everything we ordered was delicious but the baked huevos rancheros were amazing. The option of half orders was perfect for me. Valory is a very special lady and the restaurant gets two thumbs up!
