We went to Estudio for a Sunday breakfast and was pleased as always with their wonderful menu. We came there two times during our three week stay. The pancake plate was excellent and plentiful and the Mexican food was superb. I can recommend the spinach omelet. They have a wonderful singer(Julie ) on Sunday mornings who makes the atmosphere even... More

Just returned to our winter home and had no groceries. We were so glad to see one of our favorite places open. Breakfast two days in a row. Breakfast burritos one day and omelets the second. Both were excellent. Love the view and the friendly staff. I think they start opening for dinners next week.

Quiet serene spot for an amazing breakfast. I met the owner the night before when he was out walking his dogs with his daughter, he greeted us like family when we showed up for breakfast. Just the right portions. Loved the multigrain bread. The veggies in our omelettes were so fresh as well as the fruit cup. They kept the... More

Had a hard time finding, but it was worth searching. Had cocoanut shrimp which was very good and my husband had the grilled fish, which was excellent. Staff was very friendly and we will definitely return on our next trip to Nuevo Vallarta.

In a two week stay in Nuevo Vallarta, we only missed one morning having breakfast at Estudio Cafe. The waiters almost knew that the order was going to be Egg Burrito with Bacon and Egg Burrito with Mushroom for my husband and I with 2 coffees, but we mixed it up a couple of times having the french toast made...
