The Mexican conchitas are amazing, freshly bake with the nata delicious.

As for the food is just ok , a bit over priced , but if your for coffee and fresh Mexican pan dulce, this is the place.

The service is amazing. Our waiter was great and very attentive.

Best breakfast in town. Service is first class. Authentic Mexican fare. Chilaquiles and flor de calabaza omelette were excellent. Hot chocolate and pastries with “nata” were a crowd-pleaser for the kids.

This chain is it institution for breakfast. I’m sure it’s great anytime of day we love the breakfast so much we went out of her way to come back a second time. There Pan the concha served with nata( a type of cream/cheese)is famous and well worth it. Their juices are mouthwatering. The hot chocolate is as good as any I’ve ever had. The enchiladas with beef tongue were spectacular. We were there during the mushroom harvest and had enchiladas with the seasonal mushrooms which were mind blowing. They only accept reservations until a certain time and then you have to wait in line.
