“Best coffee in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Cute cafe next to weary traveler hostel. Nice staff, tasty baked goods. You can sit outside and people watch or sit inside and browse their lending library. They make a perfect iced latte, they have the best coffee in town.

“Best Cappuccino in Mexico?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

It's hard to find a truly great cappuccino in Mexico (if you like strong coffee), but Babel Cafe delivers it consistently. They also serve up (with a smile) good breakfasts, sandwiches with homemade bread, great juices and pastries. Unlike so many places in the area, they keep their prices reasonable. A very pleasant place to spend some time.

“Best fruit shake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We came to have a branch, and ordered sandwiches, which were good and basic. nothing special.

but, the fruit shakes we ordered were amazing! very tasty, and with good ratio between the elements (sounds like mathematician works there...)

we didn't try any desert. shame on us...

“best latte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Great place to enjoy a latte or mocha frappuccino or homemade dessert. The staff is really nice, too and there's WiFi. There are definitely some douches who stop by and talk loudly about their douchey lives, but by and large the place has a good vibe and going there is an enjoyable experience.
