We went for breakfast and I enjoyed my eggs Benedict although it was a bit too lemony to my taste I would recommend this place though.

What a great place! The food was excellent. We decided that we would like to try this place so we popped in and it did not disappoint. First it was one of our party's birthday and my wife mentioned it to our server, and while we were figuring out our order they brought out a waffle with ice cream and... More

This is the 'go to' place for a very very good breakfast. Be prepared to wait for a table. Fresh juices, eggs, omelets, waffles, fruit ... it's all delicious. Friendly service. Lots of people eating here that seem to know each other and the staff. Price? Very reasonable ... hope it stays that way.

Looking for a great breakfast and very reasonable this is the place in PM. The place is small and a bit cramped, but the quality of the food, and the friendly staff, more than make up for the lack of space. Between 4 of us, we all had different egg offerings, and they were all excellent. You will not leave... More

Theres a reason this is one of the top rated restaurants in Puerto Morelos, we ate breakfast here several mornings and it was cheaper then making it ourselves. If you only have time to go once, I recommend getting the bun, you can thank me later !

We loved breakfasts at El Nicho. We had eggs benedict and the waffle. The eggs were excellent and the waffles was good, but nothing spectacular. The fresh juices are delicious and we had coffee as well which was excellent. It was a pretty crowded when we were there and we had to flag down the wait staff a few times,... More

We have been coming to Puerto Morelos for several years, this is one of our favorite places to get breakfast. Everything is delicious, but my favorites are the local dishes - huevos divorciados, molletes, and chiliquilis. It's a small place that fills up quickly and is usually packed, so it's not usually the best place to go if you're in... More

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.
