The dining rooms are warm and colorful, with small fireplaces, although ours wasn't lit where we sat. I guess we're just contrarians. I was struck by the entertaining folk art on the walls. I'm not a huge fan of folk art, but this was engaging.
But first we started with glasses of jugo de mandarina, which was excellent, even better (well, a lot better) than the jugo de mandarina at El Gorjeo de Las Aves En Las Mañanas de Abril at Ziracuarétiro. El Pegaso's is a lot sweeter and full of tangerine flavor. Doña Cuevas had two glasses of the "grande" size, which weren't that grande, in her opinion.
Larry's Benedict looked good, but the gestalt was diminished, in my opinion, by the prefab, oval of previously frozen potato, a la comida rápida. He let me taste the potato, and it wasn't bad, but still...¿Como se dice "tacky" en Español?
The eggs were nicely cooked and had good conformation, but ¡lástima!, the sopes were hard, muy duros. Difficult to cut. But apart from durability issues, the dish was satisfactory.

Larry later said he went back the next evening and had the best filet steak in his life.
On the basis of one breakfast experience, here's my ratings:
Ambience: ***** Colorful and amusing Mexican folk art, feel good atmosphere. Se habla Inglés.
Price: $-$$ (Looks more expensive than it is.)
Rest Rooms: Clean, but reached by a long, steep flight of stairs.
I might return, for a lunch or something different on the breakfast menu.
Next up: Dila's Restaurant and Gallery
"tacky" = "cursi"
5 of us went there recently for breakfast based on a recommendation of one of our group. Based on our experience I would rate the place a 2.5 max. and no hurry to return. John
Thanks to Bob for the tacky translation. I didn´t know that.
I love Eggs Benedict. The best-ever version was served at La Casa de la Marquesa in Querétaro.
And then they dropped it from the menu! My theory is that the customers, almost 100 percent Mexican (it ain´t San Miguel), had no idea what it was and never ordered it. Pity.
