Great Food, portions are huge! It is below Los peleones, they have the same food standards, Great to find such quality in a small island.

When we went here for lunch today, for the second day in a row, we asked ourselves where all of the other people were. Having gone through the highest rated places on Holbox it's obvious this is without a doubt the best lunch on Holbox! Great Spanish tortillas, Pita rolls and salads which are perfect sized for lunch. The refreshing... More

This place has both indoor and outdoor seating. I had a very good cup of coffee served in a beautiful cup. The lemonade is refreshingly sour. We also tried a cappucino frappe which was also good. I had a Spanish tortilla (omelette with cheese and potatoes). It was really well-made. I can't put a finger on this place. Plus the... More

I love La Tortilleria! The owners are very sweet, and the coffee is excellent. Most importantly, though, it is the BEST omelette I've ever had in my life. I also really enjoyed their delicious and unique fresh juice blends. Their are good vegetarian options here, in a place where these can be hard to come by. Highly recommend!

Small hidden away restaurant run by two energetic young people! There is a very small menu, choices sometimes dependent on what veggies came in that day. Try the Spanish tortilla ,generous size, one will feed two people! Inexpensive and healthy lunch!

Delighted to find this place as eating healthy on vacation is always tough. The veggie options were a real treat. Nice people, great atmosphere, what`s not to like?

We only found this place on the last few days we were here. It was a refreshing change and served veggie goods to die for. Lovely little place, friendly service and healthy food. We did relent and have a coffee, it smelled too good to resist.

Lovely people run this little place and everything is served with a smile. Great food and great coffee together with the original ingredients to make their Tortilla make this place a must visit when in Holbox.

I tried nearly all of Holbox's dissapointing breakfast options before i found this great place! They have fresh vegetables and fruits, which is very rare in that area, with a wide range of good dishes. You MUST try one of their spanish tortillas! Highly recommended.

I am so annoyed that after 10 days in Holbox we only found this place on our last day! Being vegetarian I was getting fed up of the pizza / plain pasta / quesadillas as the beggie option in the restaurants on the island. This place is a great option, with really delicious tortillas where you can choose from an... More
