Fonda Dona has great Mexican breakfasts and brunch. We love going there for Sunday brunch. Be prepared for lots of large family parties, so get there early! Love their chilaquiles and pozole. The also have pancakes and numerous Mexican style egg dishes. Great juices....try the carrot juice, it's really good. Not a gringo restaurant, but one that you really should... More

Very affordable restaurant with an international menu, speciali\zing in Mexican recipes. What I don't like is a salad menu that uses head lettuce and does not use anything else for lettuce

There is a morning breakfast menu and an afternoon menu, both of which range from prettydamngood to delicious. Chorizo in eggs, enfriolades with either chicken or shredded beef, and omelettes are the morning winners. For afternoon the enfriolades are still on the menu and come with a salad, fish Veracruz, fillet. I don't think you can go wrong. The menu... More

I'm sitting here waiting for my check. Well, it has been 10 minutes now. The food service was equally poor -- SLOW. I had to ask for three times for a water refill before I got it. The food wasn't worth the price. STILL WAITING FOR THE CHECK. I have been waiting for years to come here. Now I understand... More

Located just west of Ajijic's dowtown this restaurant offers great meals at good prices. Traditional Mexican meals are offered as well as American style breakfasts. The wait staff are prompt and courteous. The food always fresh and delicious. I usually order hotcakes with scrambled eggs with an extra order of bacon. The hot cakes are always light and fluffy.

We have only eaten Sunday breakfast at Dona Lona's. Service is attentive, food is served hot. My personal favorite is the Migas....a combination of eggs, cheese, crispy tortilla chips. You can have this with red/green chile. Get there early on Sunday. It starts getting crowded between 9:30a-10a.
