Many food types offered Plenty of security around. Prices were low compared to the high rent area. Many Westin vacationers go here as a relief to some of the resort pricing.

This stand is wonderful! The açaí bowl is delicious. The salmon toast was also excellent. The owner is friendly and the food was fresh. Would highly recommend breakfast here.

A little something for everyone. Good food. Authentic flavor/vibe yet still didn’t feel unfamiliar. We read other reviews prior to our trip that suggested visiting and we weren’t disappointed.

Yes they do, but since the food is not expensive, I️ would suggest to take Mexican pesos to pay, that way to save the % fee for foreign exchange from your CC. Just a friendly advice 👍🏼
