This place is family owned and operated. To say there is nothing fancy about this place would be an understatement but, when it comes to a good meal at a great price this place cannot be beat.

Breakfast here was good and plentiful. Service was good, but slow. It wasn't a problem because we were on Mexican time anyway. It was inexpensive; definitely worth the price. We watched the lady behind the counter squeeze our orange juice into large glasses. The ambiance is pretty typical. Next time we're in Chelem we'll go there again. We own a... More
