“UNFORGETTABLE BREAKFAST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

This is a casual restaurant, popular with locals, best for breakfast, don’t miss the “pan dulce” (sweet bread) a Mexican tradition, here is very very good, has its own bakery, you don’t have to go to México city or other place to taste it at is best, ask for “chocolate caliente” or “café con leche”, I tried the quesadillas on pumpkin seed sauce and the bocoles and were great. This restaurant confirms what I always said about Tampico; is one of the best places in Mexico to eat.
