We eat breakfast here regularly. Limited but very authentic menu. Caldos, menudos, posoles, hot tortillas and the best Carne de res caldo and picadillo Must arrive early as she's sold out by 11 or so. Great start on a cool shopping day in San Felipe...

This restaurant is a bit rustic, but don't let that deter you. Nice family owns and runs, and the soup is really fantastic! Try the beef broth. Large piece of meat, great variety of veggies. It does not disappoint!

Good food, and if you like chicken soup, order a bowl, be ready for a large order with the whole leg. Rice included. great when hot or on cold day. Sit outside watch the water and fishing boats.

They have daily specials and the fish meatball soup is really good. I agree with the other guy who lives here. Get there early or call and they'll hold you a dish. Very clean and excellent food. I think they close at 2:00 p.m. or they used to. I haven't eaten there lately, but I used to.

A little off the "Main Drag" between the Red Lobster and the liquor store at Mar Baltico #138 Norte is where you will find, "El Minuto." Alba Valle and her daughters Claudia and Carla will be "At your Service" from 7am-3pm, they are closed on Wednesdays. This is where the locals eat, this is where they bring their families. You...
