This is a lovely place to enjoy a typical mexican breakfast. The chilaquiles are 'to die for', very tasty. All other dishes are also good. And its an authentic place and a good spot to watch the street life.

Had a great time there with my family, the service was great and the food amazing for a great price, the only issue is that it's a very small place, but it's part of it's charm. As everything in Holbox, you need to take everything relaxed, if you go in a hurry... you should never go to Holbox.

My girlfriend and I had breakfast here nearly every day on our 3 week visit. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious, fresh and authentic. The Mexican eggs were great and we saw the chef making them with fresh ingredients and lots of passion. It's a must for at least breakfast and we had ceviche which was also... More

We ate there a couple of times and each time we've had chicken fajitas and they were good. Not extraordinary but solid good.

I only went there for breakfasts but they were excellent! Simple but good, and the coffee was superb! Tried the quesadillas, huevos divorciados, molletes and huevos motuleños, all great!

Service was good & we had a tasty breakfast. The price was great. We had Mexican eggs that came with tortillas, water of the day & coffee. All for 80 pesos each. The place could of been a little cleaner but was very cute
