Nice place, with nice music and attention. The juices are natural made with fresh fruit. There is wifi too. It's ideal for brunch or breakfast. The owner is the same of Casa Azul hotel in Holbox that I really recommend. Excellent value for money.

We ordered coffee and had two very tasty crêpes for lunch. Really a good value for money compared with other restaurants on the island. The waiters are friendly and speak english very well. Definitely a place to go for coffee, breakfast or lunch!

This is by far the best coffee we've had in Mexico so far. If you're used to drinking it strong, this is the place for you. We also had great guacamole and pizza for lunch. We loved the spicy sauces to accompany the pizza. Service...More
