a pleasant place to spend a delicious breakfast, the lady at the main entrance very friendly at all times, with great live music, the only thing I did not like was the attitude of the waiter when taking my order who wanted everything quickly and...did not I explain well what the breakfast included, I mean the accompaniments, if we mean authentic experiences, only the direct service with the client is missing so that this day would have closed with a flourish.More

The food here is absolutely delicious, such amazing value, huge portions, live music, and probably the best service I’ve ever experienced in my life. If you’re looking for amazing breakfast here in Tulum, you have to check it out!

We stumbled on this spot trying to find a place for breakfast and wasn't disappointed. It's more of a locals diner but we found the eggs meals satisfying and delicious.

A local recommended this place to us so we decided to try it out. The food did not disappoint! Best beef burrito I've ever had!! They also had large margaritas that were really good and not too sugary! Service was quick and great. Prices were...not bad at all! Easy to find on the main street. Can't wait to come back and take my husband here!!More

This was my 3rd visit to Tulum, and my family's first, and while the runs may have been closed I wanted to see what WAS open. After parking the car (free parking now) I made it clear to tour sellers we just came for lunch,...and we were happily led here. My mother had a beef sandwich, my sister the chicken tacos, and my aunt the grilled chicken. I had the Mexican Plate as vegetarian style- they said it wouldn't be big but boy was it! It was very big and delicious. The guacamole was good too. The staff was very attentive and everyone was friendly and accommodating, and had great suggestions, I wish them all the best. Overall we were really pleased. It's so sad to see the shops mostly closed up, it's a difficult time for business owners, but we were very happy to come here for a good meal. And the escabeche was amazing! Huge garlic!! I ate nearly the entire bowl :pMore

Food needs more flavor. Service was good. We went for breakfast and got the campesino combo my kids had pancakes.

We stopped here after visiting the ruins. The location is convenient and it seems clean enough, but the food was really average at best given the fantastic spots nearby on the beach. I ordered tacos and my husband ordered a burrito because they were out...of torta bread, so maybe we ordered the wrong thing. Either way we will skip this spot on our next trip.More

My girlfriend recommended this place because she found it online and had great ratings. It's on the strip so naturally I was hesitant and skeptical. We sat down, I converted the prices in my head to USD and thought, this place is priced for tourists......Then they brought out the pickled veggies and from there the meal was unreal. I am a huge fan of pickled garlic and onions so I was eating those. The natural juices came out and they were very delicious, they were so good that my girlfriend (who hates pulp in her juice) loved the juice and drank it up. The portions were surprisingly big for Mexico, and we actually ended up needing a to-go box. At the end of the day, with all the food and beverages we got for the price, I realized it was still cheaper and more delicious than any breakfast or brunch you can find in the States. Definitely recommend. We almost went twice because it was so good.More

My second day in Tulum and I stumbled across Don Cafeto. We was able to sit out in the front. I was real nice and entertaining. Music was being played in the restaurant. The food was really good.
