This place is super cute, a bit off the beaten track. We enjoyed a big breakfast and fresh squeezed juice, coffee was a bit strong. We enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Probably the best Tulum breakfast option in town.

Going to a place for breakfast for several years and you always find a consistent quality and freshness that is above the competition on main street. The egg dishes are always cooked correctly, fresh juice, hot coffee and the best rye bread around. Always a pleasure to talk with Micaella and see her take care of her guests. The surprise... More

Nice little restaurant tucked back a little ways. Had to stop at tool store across street and ate here. There are trees for shade in the back which are nice, but the neighbors use what sound like blank fireworks to attempt to scare away birds. All you hear is somewhat annoying percuussion of a firework or similar device to keep... More

Located in the core of Tulum pueblo, Azafran was a steamy bike ride away from the hotel strip where we were staying. And worth every bit of effort. The charming and quaint jardin cafe became our go-to. Featuring great coffee, and the most heavenly juice we came back again and again for "Hangover" breakfast. There is no better way to... More
