Waited 50 minutes for a waffle that was the Mexican version of a US toaster waffle. Waited 10 more minutes for a crepe and was actually a pancake. Worst meal in almost 15 years of visiting Mexico.

This place is a quaint little hole in the wall which pumps out the best food ever out of that little kitchen in the back. It was so good I think we went there three times in one week for brunch and dinner. Service is...More
