“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2014 via mobile

The pancakes were delish. The atmosphere is casual and the servers were great. We went on a Saturday morning and got the last open table, so it took a little while to get served, but we didn't mind. The food was well worth the wait.

“Best pancakes in San Jose del Cabo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

Wow . . . If you like pancakes & you're in San Jose del Cabo, try El Pancake. Huge servings and lots of variety of pancake options. Other breakfast items to complement. Quaint, open area . . . clean & nicely decorated. Friendly staff. Prices very reasonable. Great coffee. Easy to get to . . . Parking not a problem.

“Best breakfast we've had in Cabo.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

go out of your way to eat here. It is a tremendous breakfast, authentic and filling. I am a big chilaquiles fan, and these were among the best we've had. Great and quick service. big glasses of fresh orange juice. Pancakes were bug, filling, fluffy. We didn't eat until dinner, you won't leave this place hungry. And there's something cool about eating where the locals eat, listening to roosters crowing and families talking.

We will be back here for sure. not hard to find, if you can get to the Walmart, it's just a couple doors down.

“Excellent breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we found it just down the side street next to Walmart. The food was very good and at a reasonable price. The only down side is that they don't seem to be open for breakfast. We tried to eat there a second time and at 8am, we found that they were not open. It seems they are only open for lunch. Anyway, try it. You will like it.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

Oh my!! Their pancakes and french toast are to die for. Although the portion size is rather large (3 HUGE pancakes) it fed me for breakfast and lunch, and for a reasonable price. Right off the highway behind Walmart, makes this place a little quieter and not so jam packed full of tourists. Also the eating area looks like a tropical retreat as opposed to a palapa across from a concrete superstore. The fresh fruit is amazing and we have never been disappointed. Our waitress was so sweet and just awesome. Well worth a walk if you're staying near the beach in the hotel/condo zone as it only takes 15 minutes (for fast walkers).
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes breakfast, and lots of it.

I rated it as $$ for cost as it is more expensive than breakfasts downtown (at Molly's or Shooters) but it is very well priced for the quality and quantity.
