Huevos rancheros were so delicious. Latte was a plus. Such a comfortable relaxed place to eat breakfast. Great service, love the dog that comes in and flops down on the floor. Not bothered but traffic. Fun artwork on the walls for sale. Have eaten there...More

I was told by many people to stop in for a great breakfast. Very small place had to wait a bit for the food but it was worth it. My wife and i had the eggs benny as recommended and it was excellent.

We ate virtually every breakfast here during our 2 weeks in PM. It’s a busy place but the tables turnover quickly so waits are very short. The food is excellent! They make one of the best hollandaise sauces I’ve ever had in a restaurant anywhere...More

We have been enjoying eating breakfast/brunch here year after year. Solid, consistent, and good value. Still good and as good as it has always been.

This is a great spot for breakfast! We like it so much the first time we went back the next day! Freshly squeezed OJ and a fabulous choice of egg dishes. We had a scrambler one morning and an eggs Benedict the next. Highly recommend

We enjoyed a great breakfast and have returned many times during our visits to Peurto Morelos. The local artwork adds great character, the service is leisurely and the coffee is really good.

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. We only use the very best products..local/organic. Our team is second to none and our guests are our primary focus. It is across from the park and outside seating have 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. We look forward to seeing you in this piece of paradise.
