This indoor air conditioned restaurant was right next to Walmart's parking lot in Cancun downtown. They offer Mexican food and others. Menu was in English and Spanish. The place was clean, coffee was great and lots of varieties. Price was inexpensive around 300 pesos for full dinner plus appetizer plus drinks excl tips for 2 people. Location was definitely convenient just walking distance from Walmart.
