We had breakfast there two mornings. Food was great eggs, potatoes, toast, juice and coffee. Would recommend it to anyone. Very reasonable. No air conditioning but most places don't. Very convenient. Every one was very hospitable.

Best lunch after a day at the denotes...fresh food, kind waiters, and delicious drinks. This is the restaurant we continue to talk about when we get home-easy, tasty, and real Mexico. Don Cafeto is the best!
