“Best coffee in Holbox”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

My wife and I ate here for the coffee. The Spanish tortillas are phenomenal and the owners a joy to talk to. The yogurt and fruit is dynamite!

“the best birthday breakfast ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

We just came back from a great mexican adventure and one of the highlights was isla holbox and especially this place La tortilleria. Two young, friendly people did everything for us to have a nice breakfast in great environment. Love the way they did the extra effort and we will never foret this day.

love Gelika, Sanne and Maaike

“perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

just returned from a trip to Isla Holbox and the La Tortilleria was the perfect start to every day.....used the internet, enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with my coffee, and had a tranquil spot to watch the island go by. Great hospitality, well worth the visit...
on the square across from the basketball court it is easy to find because they also rent bicycles....

“"Man! that mango pay... I would go back to Holbox just for that!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We had the pleasure to be at the opening day of La Tortilleria, to be welcomed by the most wonderful hosts. Its a very simple place, just the essentials but great quality. Besides a coffee/lunch/restaurant its also a place where you can check the internet. Like mexico travelers probably know, good coffee is hard to find, so we were very happy to find La Tortilleria mokka coffee made with love. And the mango pay (or ANY pay Paulina makes) is unmissable! The Tortillas are really great too, everything really fresh, hand made and price quality is perfect! If you go there please say hi from us, they made Holbox feel like home ;)
