I ate at El Cafecito in Playa Zicatela and down on Benito Juarez. The second time, begrudgingly, because whilst the food and service are fine, they are nothing to write home about, and it's expensive. It's an option but there are plenty of others!

The food was great nothing special, I would have hoped my egg had been properly cooked on my chilaquiles, requested them fried and they came looking like rubber, the chilaquiles had good flavor however. Service was good given how busy they were.

We ate in the Riconada branch. Good value, good choice for vegetarians and good value. The service was always helpful, efficient and friendly. We didn't even go anywhere else after we found this place!
