I enjoyed a large breakfast in Vagabunda's outdoor patio. Service was prompt and food tasty. Orange juice was freshly squeezed, coffee served with cream, and meal was served in a timely manner. There's nothing fancy here, just good ole-fashion breakfast food for those looking for a filling meal.

This place is one of the best places for food in the downtown area of Playa del Carmen. The service is ok but we didn't come for that. I rated this place with a 5 because the food was so amazing that nothing else mattered. There juice are also to die for and you can tell they are hand squeezed

The enchiladas playa with mixed seafood are more than spectacular. Coupled with the Baja style tacos, cervezas and margaritas you can't go wrong!!

We were all Vegans and the place had at least 5 or 6 different options for us. Fresh food and great friendly service. Loved the margaritas on the rocks, so good. Very busy place, so you know the food is fresh.

Our mission was to find the best Margarita in Playa and this is not the place. We got an overpriced glass of lime juice and ice. Just awful, save your money and head off the strip.

Loved the look of this place and it didn't disappoint! Service was excellent, genuinely friendly staff who were very attentive. We ordered from the breakfast menu and had Ranchero & Mediterannio - would recommend both dishes. Look forward to trying their dinner menu!

We stopped for a between meal appetizer and ordered ceviche and nachos. Fabulous!! We loved the atmosphere, the friendliness of the servers and staff, the colorful tables and chairs, cleanliness of the place, and most of all the food was fresh and delicious. The special care is even seen by the creative plate-ing of the dishes. This is located right... More

Great breakfast for our party of four. I had a breakfast sandwich with fruit, my husband and friend had omelets, and her husband had the chilaquiles. Everything was delicious! great location and cool on the patio.
