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.

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.

The owner expanded the restaurant so I didn't think it was as cute/cozy as the old set up but he's still the same guy with the same great baked goods (I love the banana, carrot etc. type breads). Two of us stopped another time for specialty coffees which were quite good.

And I've been bartending for 25 years.....never even particularly liked pina coladas, but saw someone else drink one and craved it. After our only negative dining experience in Isla, we were happy to find this gem on a sidestreet and it turned around our night. Bartender was great!!! Had our own little private party with fun music. A definite hit!
