We had heard about this place for a couple of months now but had not had a chance to eat there until yesterday.
Sunday morning is a difficult time to find a good place to eat in Ensenada, as many places are crowded and it’s hard to find a good table.
We had no problem finding a nice spot at Casa Marcelo; we sat in the covered garden in a nice table for four.
We were greeted and given a nice platter with home made cheese, chimichurri and warm bread... a great start.
We ordered Chicharrón with eggs and green salsa, fried lamb with green salsa in a saucepan, and finally the one who stole the day... French toast! All the dishes were tasty, but the French toast was completely different to what I had tasted before: the homemade bread bathed in hot apricot jam and finally crispy amaranto made this my new favourite breakfast in Ensenada.
Price was reasonable and in all we had a lovely experience... we will surely come back soon.

The Greats- The food here is good. I cannot eat beans for brunch, but the corn tortillas come filled with cheese (love Mexican cheese) and with a side of avocado. If you are a cheese lover, the home-made ricotta is to DIE FOR! So delicious, and they bring it complimentary on the house. The lamb was also very good. The orange juice is fresh. The service was also amazing. The staff is friendly and English-speaking and they will go the extra mile to meet your expectations. The value for money is also very favorable. THE BEST IS THE ICE-CREAM CORNER owned by the same group. The aged cheese (de cava) is amazing, a must try.

The Goods- The location is near downtown so it is nice if you would like to get a flavor of downtown Ensenada.

The-Not-so-Goods- They did not have wifi that we could connect to, and as a tourist, if you do not have international roaming or a rental car, it might be expensive to roam and get an Uber.

We arrived Sunday midmorning and were seated quickly. It is a lovely setting, well tended plants make it feel cool and shady. A nice atmosphere with local families, kids and well behaved dogs. Food was excellent. Service very good also. Highly recommend and look forward to returning on our next visit to Ensenada.
Additionally, we tried the gelato as we left and it was also excellent.

Casa Marcelo in the past two weeks has launched boutique style ice cream parlour (Ramonetti Gelateria) with custom selection of favorite flavors of the great neve.
All neve are from natural ranch sources and will be the choice from the youngest ninos to the golden edge senior.
Highly recommended to locals and visitors to the Valle Guadalupe.
