You may have to pour your own coffee. But the food is wonderful. Best breakfast in La Cruz. You can have a full breakfast and coffee for 80 pesos. Live music 4 nights a week. It doesn't stay open late but it does not have to. Clientele in 50s plus and very friendly. My favourite place to eat.

Was recommended this place for the love music. There was band made up of a drummer, guitar/singer, bass/singer and a sax player! Very cool indeed! Not to mention the guy who came up on the stage to play the washboard and the three guys in front of the stage playing the spoons!! A little while later a young man from... More

Usually excellent 50-60 music for listening and dancing. Barry and Ana are the super friendly couple that have operated this "hit" of a place. Personally, we have been going there for years. This place keeps you young. ☺. 👏👏

The menu is very limited you get a choice of meatloaf which is excellent with mashed potatoes and corn just like you would get at home nachos or chicken fingers but they do have a live band and there is no cover charge the van started at 6:30 and was really good the price was very reasonable I would recommend...

We will go back today around lunch time. We both had the standard eggs with bacon, sausage or ham, that came with potatoes , or rice and toast or tortillas. Two glasses... More

Have always enjoyed an evening at unusual spot with very interesting stories & history. Have to vet the band ahead to make sure it's to your listening/dancing pleasure. The ribs were always great but not being served this year and their days of operation have been cut back (retirement coming?). Often a fun spot to spend at least part of... More

Nice pit stop..After the market we stopped in for some drinks.easy to find.Drinks were nice and cold. You just need to watch out for the uneven streets which is normal in Mexico .lol

Had gone by there a few times - it looks pleasantly quaint, so we tried it for lunch on a Sunday. Starting with an uninterested service, we found there was no coffee. A very limited lunch menu is OK if you are after fast food. We chose orange juice and the BLT - something basic. The orange juice came out... More

Have come to Anna Bananas for about a dozen years when they play classic Rock n Roll. Musicians are talented. Beer and glasses always cold and fries were excellent. Hope you're not in a hurry for the food, service a tad slow but friendly. Barry is always a gracious host, knows his customers well.
