Best sandwiches ever!!

My sister and I tried the zucchini sandwich with Gorgonzola, and oh my god, so so good! Maybe one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten, I would highly recommend! We also had an apple, Gorgonzola and pecan salad which was drool-worthy as well. So so yummy!!!! Would happily come back!

Naranja, pina, chaya is my favorite drink here. So good. The salads are also delicious. If you like the ingredients, you can play with them at home. I also got some condiments, notably mustard and vinegar. Very kind workers have been gracious with my attempts at Spanish. I highly recommend this place.

My husband had an average cup of Americano coffee. I ordered an iced chai latte that was literally a cup of milk with ice and a tea infuser shoved in it. We both ordered a croissant and when finally served (took over ten minutes in a non-busy cafe) they told me they don't have jam OR butter to put on... More

This place is perfect for a change of pace in Tulum. The sandwiches are delicious from the fresh cut meat to the bread and cheese. You'd think you've stepped into a deli in Europe.

Mmmm. This Italian deli on the main road in Tulum is great. We wandered in for coffee and went back a few days later for panini and dessert. They also sell supplies like coffee beans and honey. Definitely stop by for a meal if you are in town. Very friendly service and great flavors.
