Great location. Sat upstairs overlooking the square. Great pasta and beer. Inexpensive. Waiters could be a little more friendly.

This is a great place for breakfast or lunch. I had the Mexican eggs which were quite delicious and a veggie omelet that was just as yummy. I had also been longing for a latte, which they did not disappoint. It was so tasty!! Will be coming back to this little gem when I return to the island!

I stopped here for lunch and had the tortilla with chaya. It's a good lunch--substantial but not too much food. The service is low key and friendly.

While the Spanish Tortillas were quite nice (and HUGE), the best thing I ate there were their quesadillas! The workers don't speak much English, so be prepared to communicate in Spanish. While they might seem unfriendly at first, just remember that they have as hard of a time communicating with you as you with them!

Really good authentic Spanish tortillas with home made bread and spicey mayonnaise . Excellent size and value can't understand why it's not even higher up the ranking list . Strongly recommended oh and the home made iced tea choices are fab too 😉

My husband and I ordered at the same time and the toast showed up with no butter or jam ...15minutes later his meal shows up and when we decide that he was eating alone mine showed up...he was almost finished eating. I'm by all... More

Outstanding breakfast! Fresh squeezed juice (yummy!), You have to try their signature omelet (I had it with ham and cheese) , it is huge (more than enough for 2 people) and just absolutely delicious. Hubby had the pancakes with Nutella and nuts-looked so good and he ate it all. Good cappuccinos. Recommend.

Very nice place to seat for both lunch and breakfast. The menu has some vegan options, we had an excellent fresh and large salad and 2 vegan tortillas which were amazing. The good thing about the tortillas (weather vegan or not) is that you can add cool things like dried tomatoes, olives, etc. to create different tastes. The service was... More

Very cute cafe where we went for breakfast. The coffee was strong, the strawberry licuado was delicious and we enjoyed the fresh bread they brought out with the chipotle dipping sauce was amazing. My partner order the ham and cheese Spanish tortilleria (individual size) which was huge (enough to probably share between two) and it was very good. Solid prices,... More
