We went to La Palapa hoping for a better than average Mexican brunch, but came away feeling like it was pretty ordinary. The huevos rancheros verde was sort of soupy. The mexican french toast (oxymoron?) had little Mexican about it. The special was the best item. The portions are huge, but similar food could be found at pretty much any other Mexican restaurant. The outdoor dining on St Marks Place is always entertaining, but only because of the street scene, not the La Palapa decor. Go for good basic Mexican, but don't expect creatively presented food.
