Our three teenagers enjoyed the Mexican equivalent of a Grand Slam: two eggs (they all ordered 'over easy'), two thick 'fluffy' pancakes (at least 8" in diameter), and two strips of bacon for 59 pesos each. My wife enjoyed Huevos Rancheros: 3 eggs on a corn tortilla, red sauce, delicious refried beans, and potatoes (steamed and sautéed with basil and garlic - yum) for 69 pesos. I ordered the Granjero 3-egg omelette (avocado, spinach, cheese, substituted onion for mushrooms), and I requested salsa and crema (better than American Sour Cream) which they brought as sides (free). My omelette also came with the refried beans and basil potatoes, all for 79 pesos. The coffee was typical Mexican cafe, and they also had brown sugar on the table in addition to Splenda and regular sugar. We enjoyed three large Mango smoothies and a large fresh OJ for 35 pesos each, and fresh lemonade for 25 pesos. Our total cost including IVA (tax) and tip was 600 pesos. The ambiance was very nice. The restaurant is essentially a covered patio or palapa enclosed by bamboo and greenery. Our young waitress and waiter were very personable and accommodating. I think the review dissing this place should be removed. The floors weren't dirt, nor did the place look run down. The food, service, and venue were perfect. This was our first morning in SJC, so we can't compare this restaurant to others here, but we will definitely return again after we have checked out French Riviera, Tropicana, and a couple of eateries we passed on our 2-mile walk from our hotel (Cabo Azul Resort) to El Pancake House. Afterwards we walked to the corner and picked up everything we need for snacks, happy hours on our balcony, smoothies, burgers, sandwiches, cereal, popcorn, etc. The taxi ride back to our hotel for five and groceries was $7.
