Is a well located neat restaurant, with good food at right prices. A modest but good food offer, well cooked and fast served. Just the place to go if you want a fairly nice experience. Nothing extraordinary, but good quality and well served portions.

We had a couple of times breakfast there. It is very tasty and doesn’t cost so much. They have a bakery there and you can buy bread and croissants for breakfast at home. Very nice spot

A local mainstay cafe/restaurant, frequented by locals, Mexican and foreign tourists alike. Good, attentive service. Abundant breakfasts... But the pastries....i would return again and again for the mango y crema pastelera! A great place to visit.

We ate there every day while being in Puerto Escondido. While everything we tried was nice, the burger was the highlight!

We've been to both locations in PE and they have always been consistent for all meals, times of day, staff, portions, food quality and more! Usually busy, which is always a good sign even though it may be hard to get a table at times....More
