Great lunch time menu. Buy some sticky sweet cinnamon buns to take with you and enjoy the roasted meat: chicken, ribs and beef. The Galveston, Texas owner was out of ribs when we stopped but treated us to a sample of beef and promised to go into town to make sure there were ribs for the next day. You cannot... More

After I tried the food at bluegrass I would not eat anywhere else in playa Hermosa. It is the best food plus it is the cheapest. The staff is very nice and inviting.

Came back to this bakery after a couple of years. The cinnamon-rolls continue to be outstanding. They were sold out by 11 am. This time I also had a smoked pork sandwich with home-made BBQ sauce. It was very tasty, although the pork was a little tough. The location pin on Trip Advisory is way off. The correct location is... More

Laid back atmosphere. Yummy Cinnamon buns and pinto. Great place to chill after an adventure. We stopped here after hiking a mountain train which comes out very close to this outdoor restaurant.

We were lucky enough to get here on a Sunday afternoon when there was still some chili left. The couple in front of us had nabbed the last of the cinnamon buns! The chilli was delicious and we were treated to an impromptu bluegrass/Celtic guitar set. Having read all the rave reviews, we are pleased to confirm that they are... More
