We ate here for breakfast two times (for a full big breakfast it was around $10), dinner once (I was on a pasta kick this trip and it was really good here) as well as stopping by for drinks a number of times and sitting in the comfy orange chairs. It's a great place to sit and chill out.

Very nice breakfast choices, relaxed atmosphere. Not on the mail drag, so it is a little more tranquil. Chicken enchiladas were good, as were the waffles. Coffee pretty decent.

We stayed on the island for 9 days and I think I went to this cafe 6 times. The coffee was amazing and I loved the atmosphere and service. A must see on the island.

Good coffee and a really good breakfast. Has kinda a bit of a Zen feel. A few cool t shirts and gifts available on site. Worth spending a morning here for breakfast.

Cafe Mogagua serves a wide variety of snacks and food, we tried the taco's, pizza's, coffee and some desserts; all really tasty. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, wifi and I especially recommended the comfortable lazy chairs at the front of the place to read a book or just chill out for a bit and get away from the blazingly hot beach!

Finally found a coffee shop on Isla Mujeres that could make a proper vanilla latte. The place reminded us of our favorite coffee shop back home!

Laid-back, contemporary design, coffee-house feel. Stopped first for coffee, came back for lunch, came back a couple of days later again for lunch... The coffee is excellent - from expresso to flavored iced coffees. Mexican food is terrific. But I really recommend the pizza (thin crust and light), and the Spanish tapas. Haven't had patatas bravas like those since I... More

We had to eat something before going snorkeling, so we found this restaurant in our way and decide to go in because it looked very nice. We had a sandwich and guacamole that were good. Service was nice; it only took a while to get the check. They sell bagels in the morning.

Stopped here one night for dessert and coffee. I had tiramisu and my daughter had brownie and ice cream. Oh my God! It was incredible! The portions were HUGE and the coffee and desserts were beyond delicious. Loved the ambiance and the service was great. I dream about the tiramisu. Wish we would have had more time on isla so...

We loved the coffee shop so much we made a return trip. The coffee is delicious, the food is yummy. It is an open air but covered in case of rain. Every morning some local talent came by to sing a few songs and pass the hat, it was a fun touch. It is very laid back, remember you are... More
