There are scrabble eggs, pancakes, French toast and baguette bread, mentioning the 'usual' things! Other plates are traditional Mexican: pozole, nopal, chicharrones, frejoles, chilaquiles, spaghetti and...More

If you have a very low budget, there is no better place, it can't be worst. This place could be nicer, better in every sense. You can't ask for a better meal for that price. If you can afford something better, please do.
