Chose El Paloma for breakfast based on reviews and having a look around the previous evening - and was very happy we did. Nice location in the square in front of the church, excellent and friendly service, good coffee and a great breakfast. Highly recommend.

Beautiful spot for breakfast, delicious breads to start, best coffee in Tequila and the breakfasts are traditional and delicious. Total bill for four with orange juice, 497 pesos.

We came here following the trip advisor recommendations and we really enjoyed the time and food. The service by Sofia was excellent! We are the ”bistec ranchero” (beef) for less than 5 USD and it was really good.! The margaritas were excellent and really cheap!!...Not a very wide menu but the food is great. Food for 3 for less than 20 USD! Including a very nice expresso coffee. located just next to the cathedral of Tequila.More

Food is good and reasonably priced. Staff was friendly but spoke minimal English. Great to sit outside and enjoy the square. Had the pancakes (average), chilaquiles rojo (great) and the fajitas (great).

Ate breakfast here both days in Tequila and pleased with all meals. Both meals start with fresh baguettes and salsas. Had hot cakes one day and Mexican omelette the next with chilliquillas. Delicious. Breakfast for four averaged 260 pesos with awesome coffees. Don't miss this...place.More

El Palomar officially opens at 8:00 am for breakfast, although you typically can go in a few minutes early to get a decent cup of coffee while the staff continues to set up for the day. The coffee is freshly brewed by the barista, and...the Americano with room for cream may be the best coffee in town. I am pretty much addicted to chillaquillas for breakfast, and the ones served here are perfect - crispy, hot, smothered in green sauce (my favorite), topped with crema and crumbled cheese, with the added chicken - and are served hot. The place is really popular with locals and tourists. The menu includes an excellent range of other sweet and savory breakfast items, including what is a really good club sandwich. The refrigerator case is filled with a selection of pies, cheesecakes, etc. Service is excellent, and when there is free time the friendly staff keep the place spotless. The warm welcome and smile are included for free. ;)More

Great coffee, great service, great food, reasonable prices! Right on the main plaza. We sat upstairs on the balcony (tiny!), and had a great view of the main square and church.

decent breakfast. ok lunch. coffee is tasty. service was nice. we sat outside, although it definitely started to get unbearably hot if you weren't under the table umbrella. worthwhile spot for food.

Our breakfasts at El Palomar were some of the best meals we had in Tequila. Flavorful breakfasts, great coffee and professional service.
