This is a very pretty place, the food is all natural and finely presented. Salads are to die for, and the service is wonderful! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to chill out and have a nice lunch with the family!

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.
