Choice of home baked bread, prosciutto and cheeses. Capuccino and caffe latte is on the second place after Ki Bok. Here you have better location on the main street, waiters have true hospitality. The price of coffee like on most places, bread is expensive but if you want best quality don't look any more.

Loved the salad we had, the juice and the excellent and friendly customer service. The argentinean lady behind the bar made our experience a lot better. We went there twice!

I have eaten here twice during my stay in Tulum. After the first visit I couldn't wait to return. The sandwich was excellent. Quality meat, real cheese, fresh tomato and lettuce, heated through so the cheese melted just a touch. The bread was delicious - it is so hard to find good bread in Central America that isn't loaded with... More

I know, you're reading all these reviews, thinking "what's the big deal about a damn sandwich?" Trust me, just go. You'll understand. From now on, I will eat here at least once every time I am in Tulum. If you try it, you will, too.

This was the only spot in town with braseola, coppa, prosciutto, and aged and fresh cheeses from across the ocean. lots of jars of local products and other fancy delights that might be up your alley if that is your bag!
