Had the Portuguese French toast. It was excellent. Get there early because it gets really crowded and there's no place to wait for a table except outside. Highly recommended by locals.

This is a small out-of-the-way restaurant that serves a good breakfast at a good price. Some of our group stumbled across it and was pleasantly surprised.
