We had breakfast here the first morning we were in Montezuma. Service is good and the smoothies are terrific. They make a very good breakfast with reasonable prices.

Good coffee, fresh bread, homemade jam. Sounds like a winner to me. The gals here work very hard, but the service is a little slow.

This place looks like you'll get dysentery just glancing at it. So far so good tho and the food was good. It's a good location just off the beach.

Lots of other groups seemed to have long delays receiving their meals as well. When the food arrived it was pretty top drawer stuff though. We also got to see a few Monkeys while we... More
