Creative Latino breakfast plates include a delicious slightly spicy Papas con chorizo and a veggie Plato verde with egg and chili tamales. Blueberry cornmeal pancake was a nice breakfast dessert snack. This is the place to come in the morning directly from the airport.

This place doesn't look like much, but the service was excellent and the food was amazing. My family of 5 went and had no problem being seated right away.
