“Best food in Mexico”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We were looking for the best breakfast in town and we ended up finding our best meal in Mexico so far! The Huevos Rancheros are amazing and the different eggs benedict options were a huge hit with our crowd. They are only open for breakfast/brunch/lunch, but the food is absolutely incredible. If you are anywhere near here in the morning, you should do yourself a favor and stop in. The staff was super nice and friendly, the service was super-quick, and the food was awesome.

“Great breakfast, great service, great people.”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

We stopped for breakfast on the way from the airport to Playa del Carmen. I had eggs Benedict and my wife had an omelet, both of which were incredible. The staff is friendly and attentive. El Nicho will become a tradition.

“Top Quality”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

If it be breakfast or lunch, this is the place you want to be. I have much respect for an establishment that has set hours of service, as El Nicho does from 7:30 AM to 2 PM (except Mondays) because it serves up excellent quality food and beverages. My wife and I enjoyed both our meals and I also enjoyed looking at and smelling all the other meals around me. The place was full during a low-season period at 11 AM and the service was quick and very friendly. Even though we don't live in Puerto Morelos, we do plan to go back for their food and friendliness and at great prices.

“Incredible!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

We found this restaurant on the second day of our trip and went every single morning after. Benny Lox and Waffle were my favorites by far but you honestly can't go wrong with anything you try here. Food is amazing, so fresh and delicious! Must try!
