We stopped in here for brunch before heading to the beach. We were very happy with our experience. The wait staff was very pleasant, and the selections were good - both for sweet, like the coconut French toast, and the savory, like the hash Mexicana. They close at 1:00 pm, and then reopen for dinner.

First of all service was excellent. Just wasn't too happy with the meal. Ate breakfast here just once. We both ordered an garden omelet, turned out it's contents were 95% onions. We both ended up trying to scrape all the onions out in order to make it edible. There is nothing else served on the side that's included.

The french toast with almonds and the eggs benedict were absolutely amazing. The service here is a step above what we received in other restaurants, therefore drawing us come back for a few more visits during our stay on the island. The food was fresh and presented well, and the waiters and waitresses we had were very personable and made... More

We ate here for breakfast three times because the menu had so many options that once was not enough. The coffee is great, with a hint of cinnamon and it's serve yourself so if you are like me and don't like waiting for the server to bring your coffee to you because you need it right away, you'll like that....

We enjoyed breakfast here twice and appreciated the English spoken by cheerful, charming staff. Help yourself to bottomless coffee is a great way to start the day! The food was interesting and delicious each time.

The food was very good but the service is slow. We had an 8pm reservation and our food was served 1hour later. The Mexican Fondue was excellent. The Market Salad with grilled Chicken was amazing and the Surf and Turf was delicious and filling.

Located at the north end of Hidalgo Street, the place is just wonderful. Very friendly staff and outstanding food. Went twice in a 12-hour period (dinner and then breakfast the next morning). Terrific selection of exotic Margarita flavors (pineapple ginger, grapefruit mint, watermelon jalapeño, cucumber basil---yes I'm on a mission to try them all!). Best coffee on Isla! Desserts are...

Went there with three couples, 3 of us had the fish tacos. Very good and tasty, with a mango salsa. Looked like fish sticks though. I was expecting fish fillets but instead had what looked like fish sticks. Others in our party had other things and they all said it was excellent. Price was fair, but a little on the... More

This is a lovely restaurant. The menu offerings are creative. I stopped in for breakfast Adam had a French toast with ginger in it. I felt like I was back home in California. I'm going back again today!
