Just had a wonderful dinner. Flan steak melts in your mouth and seared tuna is great! Margaritas were strong and delicious. But the best part was the friendly, fun service and amazing shots! We're coming back for breakfast.

I heard good things about this place. We went for breakfast on a Monday morning and when we arrived the owner told us his cooks didn't show so he was closed, but that he would be open the following day. We came back the next day and the wait staff and cooks didn't really seem to be with it. All... More

Just wondered into Aluxe's while shopping on the Island. First thought was the place was cozy and Ivan (the bartender, operator) offered us a meal. We only wanted drinks and so we sat at the bar. Alex takes great pride in preparation and presentation with food and drinks and his passion for the trade is admirable. Always smiling and chatty,... More

It does not get any better for breakfast foods and drinks. We truly love Alux and his baking. We get loaves of banana bread from him every time we come to Isla. Great taste and great service.

Great place to stop for a hot Jo on the Isla, if you are in a hurry or have all day, the owner can get you on the road fast or just sit back and enjoy the view of the crazy tourist going the wrong way on the one way streets, traffic jams are interesting and fun to watch.

We stop here for coffee and mimosas every time we visit Isla Mujeres. They are fast and friendly. The coffee and as good as the states and mimosas are good but could be stronger.

My husband and I had breakfast here our last day in Isla. We started by sharing a fruit salad with yogurt and granola and both had iced coffee. I had eggs with chorizo and my husband had an omelet. Our breakfast was delicious and the coffee was good. Our waiter/chef was also very nice. We will be back on our... More

Before going I read someone mention they had the best piña colada here... It's true! Had plenty of alcohol & pieces of real coconut! Superb. The owner, Evan, was very nice & fun to chat with.

Visited alludes coffe shop twice during our stay at Isla Mujeres. The coffee was great, but the best part was the muffins and banana bread. Staff were super friendly.
