If you need a strong, hot coffee, or even capuccino this is your place in Tulum! The bakery is good, too: cakes were fresh and tasty.

Babel café bakery is terrific! The staff is engaging, and delightful! The ham and cheese croissant and the almond croissants are flaky, buttery and crave-ably delicious! In fact, I think I'll go back for another one this morning!

Just stopped by on a lazy Sunday for coffee. I really could not have asked for more. Staff pleasant and helpful, coffee was great, pastries good. Nice place to sit, watch people and do nothing. What more could I ask for?

They serve up a proper cup of coffee, or latte. My spouse had the waffles which were sweet and delicious. I had a veggie sandwich which was huge, enough for 2 meals. It was fresh and just what the doctor ordered, after an early morning tour of Tulum ruins. I also had to try their carrot cake - it was... More

Of course its very western but every now and then I need a break from tacos and burritos. And this is one of the best bakeries we came across on our 5 month trip through parts of asia and central america. Go splurge! Prices are around 60 pesos for a fully stuffed bagel!

We were very happy to find this cafe after our first week in Mexico as we were craving North American style pastries. The pecan pie was a bit dry; I think because it was so packed full of pecans. The dark chocolate brownie was good but also a bit dry. We stumbled across another small bakery down the street; (can't... More

Been searching for the best cappuccino place in Tulum and so far this place takes the cake, so far. It's a quiet little café that also provides free wifi.

It is a nice place to go on breakfast, they have really good chaï latté and waffles :) we just had a problem with our order and we received 2 coffees, 2 orange juices and 1 chaï latté with our waffles.. We were 2 and that was a lot to drink! Just a misunderstanding but everything else was just perfect
