La Espadaña is "the spot" in Tijuana for a good mexican breakfast, yes the wait sometimes can be longer than desired but it is always worth it. Cafe de olla & chilaquiles won't ever disappoint.

It is a place where you can take one of the best breakfast in Tijuana area, and it´s called "Enchiladas de Mole con pollo" and I liked a lot. And you must ask for the "cafe de Olla" and brown sugar.

They offer several dishes that keep the original mexican flavor. The place is comfortable and nice to enjoy with friends. If you can, you must pay a visit here and won't have regrets.

used to go all the time, great food and service, but by law all taxes should be post it in the menu, however they slap you with the iva (VAT) , 16 % when you receive the bill, I do not like surprises
