Street side restaurant that opens at 6am and stays open until 11pm. Decent breakfast and lunch, all fairly good and consistent with no surprises. Good coffee and licuados. Generous portions as well. Good place.

We ate here after our surfing lessons. I had a stir fry veggie dish that was delicious. We had a little issue with my wife's food not getting ordered correctly. I'm sure that was due to the language barrier.
