Right on the principal avenue downtown, Don Cafeto is a local restaurant with good Mexican food that is inexpensive and with fast service. I went there for dinner twice and I was not disappointed... The little plus: the musician playing live at dinner time.

We had a brunch at this place. My wife and I had juevos motolenos, an authentic breakfast in this region. It was great. We will try again the next time we are in tulum.

We had a food rule on our 9 day trip: we would not eat at the same place more than once. Don Cafeto could have been the place that broke that rule. We just happened to hit this up on our last morning for breakfast....More

Ate here during our recent trip to Aldea Zama after being recommended by our taxi driver. The restaurant was very busy, the service and food was really good. Food and price was much better than the place we ate the day before near the beach

Place is busy but food so mediocre. Tasteless guacamole. My fish tacos were 4 tacos with some small chopped pieces of tasteless fish. The skirt skate tacos were the same small chopped pieces of meat without any flavor. There is so much better!!
