Western and Mexican breakfast options. Attentive servers. Not too pricey. Good if you've been away from home for a little while and miss a good eggs benedict!

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. It is across from the park and has 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.
