Rogelio was the waiter who served us. He was always willing to help. My wife and I had Great time and fantastic food. The taste was authentic Mexican cuisine. You don't want to miss it.

Superb coffee grown regionally. Very tasty regional Chiapaneco breakfasts or a filling continental breakfast that includes an exceptional fruit salad. I've lost track of how many times I've enjoyed a good cup of joe and a leisure breakfast in this establishment. It's located a block off the main street so you can avoid some of the hustle, bustle, and noise.

Really a huge disappointment since my last visit. I greeted the waiter ,as I always do , with no response and only a sour face. I change table hoping to do better and she did manage a small smile. But overall a unfriendly staff. Of course food and prices important to me but with a totally indifferent staff ,I will... More

Nice place to park yourself for an espresso to set you up for the evenings activities. Great ice cream as well

We came into palenque town after a early morning visit to the ruins. Needing feeding and wifi to continue planning our journey we found cafe yara. Lovely traditional Mexican breakfast, clean toilets and very fast wifi. The staff were very friendly despite our Spanish leaving a lot to be desired. Thank you!

It's one of the best restaurants in the town area of Palenque ( except La Cañada ). The best thing is the food! It is quite good, the restaurant premises are small and very normal, nothing cozy or inviting but then again, most places in the town are like that....that is why La Cañada was developed and is much better!...

This review is very late because I thought I had reviewed it. When a friend going to Mexico asked for recommendations, I discovered I didn't, so here's my belated review. There were probably eight or 10 of us. And being Asian, we either have smaller appetites (western and Latin American portions are often too big for us) or just love... More

Not my first time here but for some reason, I choose to return. Mostly because a comfortable place to spend a cool rainy afternoon with reliable WIFI. Other than that, little reason to recommend the place. First, the service ranges from slow to rude and totally lacking. The food is just OK but very overpriced for Palenque. The menu makes... More

Horrible place. Beware, in places like Mexico with good Coffee beans, of places like Café de Yara. They do not know anything about coffee (NADA). They are still serving 1980s version of a Mexican Cappuccino (Horrible expresso + Condensated and overheated milk + Cinnamon on top + in a glass). In general, stay away from places like this in Mexico... More
