Husband and I split and omelette. Our server divided it between 2 plates and added side to both without an extra charge. Most places just bring you an extra plate. Food was fantastic and service was very good. Everything was very fresh and tasty.

The fruit platter was large and good. Sandwiches were tasty with fresh ingredients. The teas and juices were the BEST & very refreshing!

This is a great breakfast place. La Sirena is better for a bar/dinner scene. It is located across the square from El Nicho.

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.
