We had some great breakfast here, and the coffees are excellent and it was difficult to find a decent coffee in Tulum. It gets quite busy, but we managed to find a table both times. I had a salmon and cream cheese bagel which was delicious, and a second time I had the fruit, yoghurt and granola which was really... More

I came here because El Gourmet was close and I'd read about Babel through reviews and it sounded great. The staff was in fact very nice and although busy, they attended in a timely manner. The carrot cake is amazing - soft with raisins or cranberries and very tasty. Now, into why I doubt I'll go back. There's not much... More

Great chai and breakfast sandwich and great wifi connection. I loved sitting, watching people while drinking the chai.

They served very good coffee, but the carrot cake I bought was too dry so it made it difficult to eat it without getting it all in my lap. Great atmosphere were you cold site for a while and read I book.

This was a surprising find in Tulum. They have the best bagels ever. The bagels are perfectly soft and firm at the same time. They are toasted to perfection and you can get a variety of things on them. I always went for a variation of cream cheese, avocado, tomato, and onion. I would sometimes do cucumber as well. They...

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?
