We stopped here for a quick breakfast after taking the quetzal viewing tour with Melvin Fernandez. Eggs, toast, gallo pinto, and coffee were made on the spot for us. Hospitality was welcoming and eating area, kitchen, and restroom are very clean.

A beautiful place to sit and have a meal. The food was good, the waitress was friendly, there is a great view, and it is a nice location to walk around.
