I used to eat breakfast here regularly when in PP great food & great coffee. I also used the cozy upstairs room for many of my meetings. Good background music too.

Can't see how anyone would think the prices aren't great at this restaurant. Attentive service, good portions, and properly seasoned food. No reason not to try it.

El Mundo is a great cafe along the River Front. It serves both western and local foods. The staff were friendly and inviting.
