Perfect place to relax and enjoy! This is really a high quality, Italian Salumeria! The paninis are wonderful as are the many other gourmet sandwiches. Pair one with a fresh fruit smoothie and you have a vacation lunch made in heaven. While the tables along the sidewalk are nice for people-watching, the patio garden in the back is so relaxing...

Adorable little juice shop right next to Scuba Tulum, which is where we left to dive from. Enjoyed their pineapple and mango juice so much afterwards, I had to go back and get another one. and it was the most refreshing pick-me-up. Highly recommend walking by and grabbing something if you are near. Very fresh and healthy.

It was a little tough to find, but we ate here two days in a row once we found El Gourmet. The sandwiches are fantastic! It's a small restaurant on the main drag in Tulum Pueblo, you can either sit at small tables inside, or out on the street - like most restaurants in Mexico. The service was friendly, and... More

In have visited this place several times during my stay in Tulum. The paninis are just amazing. So is the Iced latte and the cold drinks made from fresh fruit. They have a nice selection of Italian food inside. And the staff is superfriendly!

Found this place on my last day in Tulum pueblo. Amazing sandwich (the "Tulum") on special, home-baked bread. Juice was cold, fresh, and tasty. Yum! Friendly service, cool vibe.

Deli style cafe with amazing fresh panini sandwiches! Must go! Only found the place on our last day in Tulum but would have loved to have gone back. The owners/staff are also very friendly and make you feel very welcome. Highly recommend 👍

wow - a legitimate italian panino in Tulum. These guys make a delicious sandwich, wonderful fresh squeezed juice, and they're friendly to boot. Plus they sell ingredients / sauces - so a nice option if you are cooking / making your own food I had the Lulu - get one and enjoy the spicy cheesey goodness.

Amazing food - we ordered a panini and salad based on what Barbara (the owner) recommended and it was amazing - one of the best panini's I have ever had. The ingredients were fresh and flavor combinations were perfect. Everything else that we ordered (fresh juice, cold coffee, desserts) were very very good as well. A very satisfying meal with...

Choice of home baked bread, prosciutto and cheeses. Capuccino and caffe latte is on the second place after Ki Bok. Here you have better location on the main street, waiters have true hospitality. The price of coffee like on most places, bread is expensive but if you want best quality don't look any more.
