We had the egg “bun” which was ok. My wife had the eggs with chorizo toast and beans which was yummy. Good service and nice location. Inexpensive and well with it.

A beautiful little restaurant in the main square of Puerto Morales. Very friendly service. Food is amazing and caters to most tastes and dietary requirements. Very nicely decorated with some outdoor seating. Highly recommended.

Great breakfast with a gourmet twist. You won't be disappointed. Service was superb even though it was a busy Sunday.

Delicious egg menu. Try the eggs divorciados, but not before going scuba diving—very picante. Good coffee, fresh fruit juices, cash only.

Everything here is always fresh! Lots of options! Only downside is that it can get very hot inside and eating Hot foods will bring on more Heat! Seedy Fruits are Delicious! We could come here everyday but so does everyone else.

This is a great breakfast place. La Sirena is better for a bar/dinner scene. It is located across the square from El Nicho.

el Nicho is a beautiful place to spend a leasurely brunch. We only use the very best products..local/organic. Our team is second to none and our guests are our primary focus. It is across from the park and outside seating have a peak-a-boo view of the ocean. The room is full of lovely sites and sounds from beautifully presented food, to great music. The walls feature artwork from local artists and the service is top notch. We look forward to seeing you in this piece of paradise.
