Service, ambiance, and food were excellent. We had breakfast here (Ham and Cheese Creps) but I'm sure all food is excellent. Rigel did an excellent job and we will go back.

Stopped off here on an off chance and so glad we did. The food is absolutely amazing,along with the staff prices and atmosphere. If your looking for somewhere to sit and watch the craziness of 5th Avenue whilst eating the finest Mexican cuisine,this is the place for you.

Located right on 5th Avenida, La Vagabunda is a easy to find, and the atmosphere and food are great. I only ate breakfast there, but the restaurant was always crowded.

Wonderful breakfasts, you HAVE to try the fruit plate that comes with a giant fresh squeezed orange juice. Upgrade to a cappucino for 30 pesos. Service is incredible with the whole staff smiling and serving quickly. Haven't tried it for dinner but it has turned into our "go to" place for tasty breakfasts. Bonus is that you get to watch...

Located right on 5th Ave, you expect the prices to go up. And they are higher, nonetheless we gave it a try. Food was average, and I got sick next day with my seafood pasta. What was good was the variety of dishes on their menu, not limited to Mexican food. Kids liked their food.
