This sweet Mexican restaurant is located on charming 5th Ave (Quinta Avenida) nestled under the beautiful Mexican palm trees (yes, very different from Florida palm trees).

This place is awesome and in an awesome location. We stopped by for breakfast. The natural omelette is great. It's made with all egg whites and nuts. The side of granola and fruit is fabulous. Stop in today and enjoy great scenery along a bustling roadway.

Thank Ryan H
