The Best Coffee In Town

Coffee and crepes is what you want. I ate there every morning during my stay. They have a lovely courtyard. Also, it is located on the grooviest street in town.

I was in Tulum with my family for 2 weeks in March and we came to Le Bistro multiple times during our stay... We came for the coffee, we stayed for the food! The cappuccinos were some of the best we had had in Tulum and they were very well priced. We had multiple things for breakfast and always resorted... More

The staff was friendly. The food excellent. Some of the best espresso I had in Tulum. Baked goods were fantastic. Garden seating was a big plus to get you away from street noise.

Le Bistro used to be one of my favorite places for breakfast and lunch in Tulum (I live here). Unfortunately, I went a couple of months ago and had the worse crepes I've ever experienced. They were more like what you see in the many hotels in the area, rather than a true thin french crepe. I'm guessing they changed... More

We are fans of authentic French bistro food which is almost impossible to find in New England. The closest to us would be Montreal or Quebec City. Still testing the waters on our second night in Tulum, we chose Le Bistro. After ordering drinks the waiter brought a plate of bread with a dipping sauce. After one bite, we both... More

Here you can get a really good cup of coffee and some delicious meals during the whole day to a really fair price. It is a relaxed environment where you can bring your laptop and hangout for hours. It is a bit away from the main road which make the place quiet and the. It is close to other nice... More
