Nice place, on a lively side street, featuring a choice of good restaurants. Menu is well thought out, they don't over do it on the choices, yet there is good choice of selections, and a special dinner each evening, enough for everyone to get what they like. We were there twice for dinner and once for lunch. Tried a variety... More

I love the French toasts (that only cost 45 pesos) as well as the omelettes! The coffee/lattes are awesome! This is the only place that we go for breakfast in Tulum! A must visit when you are in Tulum.

We had a great meal. Excellent sandwiches on fresh baked baguettes, excellent crapes, and the espresso was very good as well. Prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is nice. Service is a little cold but the rest of our experience was worth a stop on our vacation.

A nice place with a beautiful courtyard that serves the best iced coffee in town so good we went back a few times. Only had breakfast in terms of food which was limited to French specialities such as crepes...

The food is not good enough for a restaurant in my opinion. It's not that you can't eat it, but it's just not good. You are better of running around the corner for a great pizza or panini!

As a local, I have eaten here before and it has been better. This time, not that great. Service was so-so but the food was really mediocre. The salad was decent then the main course came. The chicken was over done and possibly reheated. The "tournedos de res" were 2 very thin pre-frozen hockey pucks that were cooked decently but... More

Good service, good food.sit in the back garden for peace and quiet, out front for people watching. One of the oldest spots in Tulum for reliable food, especially breakfast.

We went here for dessert after eating somewhere else. The place was very clean and the waiters were friendly. We had crepes with Nutella and bananas. The crepes were excellent. The menu included a wide range of dishes and we plan to return soon.

Great place! Had to go back a second time. We had a group of 6 go to this restaurant a couple of times. All entries were very good, with not 1 complaint from our group. Great service and a great meal. Do try the lava cake, but inform your waiter that you will be having it for dessert, when you... More
