Stopping for coffee is one of our must do's every day while on vacation. We went to Aluxes one day as a change from our usual coffee shop.

Perhaps we just ordered the wrong thing... some people there said it was their fav and there were a lot of customers early in the day. A large group that seemed like regulars were having a good time. Service was fast friendly and they made me a terrific pina colada. However the burrito we shared was very dry and tasteless,... More

We were on Isla Mujeres for 1 day last week and stopped by Aluxes and were not disappointed. The food was fresh and delicious and the staff friendly and welcoming. Their coconut shrimp is the best I have ever had. Hope to return again some time.

Breakfast burrito was fantastic. Definitely worth going to for a breakfast or brunch. I had two other ppl along with me and they had a Bagel and a fruit bowl. Both of which looked good to me and apparently tasted good to them

In search for an iced coffee I came across Aluxes. I was there around 9 am & the only customer. The service was ok...they didn't ask if I was staying or going & put the coffee in a clear plastic cup, no lid. Coffee was good~nothing special

We went for a bagel, after reading about it on lonely planet. They only have bagels on the menu for breakfast, but they made it for us anyway (it was late lunch). It was good, and the staff was nice.
