We tried almost everything on the menu and to begin with the omelet was huge and good. The musli with yogurt was sugary but I like that. The pancakes were fluffy and perfect with the syrup and fruits, if you like the "American" pancake. The fruit bowls were big as well. Beverages were average but decent. I can recommend if... More

This place is frequented by locals and visitors alike. The breakfast choices are wonderful. One can get an American or British style breakfast. Food is consistently good. Been here many times for breakfast. Will always be happy to go back.

This was easily the best breakfast we have had on our trip so far, with Pan y Paz as a close second. The pancakes were delicious, and the omellete was fantastic. They also do free refills on coffee which is a lovely touch. Would 100% go back!

Good service, huge menu, big portions, great food. It's nice to have a restaurant designated for breakfast with both local and western breakfast options.

I am loving all the fresh fruit that is available in Nicaragua. We had breakfast here and it was the tastiest largest fruit bowl ever with natural yogurt and real granola, not from a store. The coffee was exceptional and the staff were frienly. Well done

Excellent choice of different breakfasts... good coffee. Reasonable prices - but the portions were BIG so that makes the prices even better :) . Nice staff. My friend and I had the tipicos which was a great start to the day. I would definitely come again to try some of the rest of the extensive menu.
