Alquimista is a hidden gem, just in the middle of the road between Sayulita's downtown and the highway. Coffee was not that bad, it was actually better than most other places in Sayulita, but still under-extracted and over-toasted for my very high standards. Food is...typical Mexican of the region, tasty, good sizes of portions, almost home-made flavor but also enough of restaurant flavor. Juices were good, wifi worked, the road is not that noisy, the corner is quite relaxed and good. Oh and prices are on the cheaper side of Sayulita. Actually, this place has perhaps the better price to quality ratio in all Sayulita. The options and flavors are better at Miscelanea, but prices there are double. This is a good spot for breakfast and food several times a week.More

The experience at Alquimista is always incredible. Amazing friendly service and quality food at amazing prices. The weekend soups are amazing, and the tortas are the best in town. A must stop in Sayulita!

I'm not sure why Alquimista has only 30+ reviews here. Then again, TRUE GEMS are not usually known by the masses - hence the term gem! I stumbled upon this place on my way to another cafe for breakfast and I'm forever thankful that I...stopped. Their food is very delicious and made from fresh ingredients, always - this includes the coffee which they grow themselves! They are also very friendly and warm to all who dine there. I can't praise this place enough but know this - I tried MANY places in Sayulita for and just kept coming back here. The prices are right too so what's not to love?More

Stumbled upon this place and what a find! The best chilaquiles I have ever eaten, hands down. Husband had huevos rancheros and loved but he was jealous of my dish! Great agua frescas. And the coffee, grown locally, was outstanding. The fellow who waited on...us was the best, explaining dishes and coffee origins. Very definitely recommend...More

Had a fantastic breakfast here — loved the chilaquiles with great tomatillo sauce, plus an amazing pineapple basil aqua fresca. Waitress was super friendly, and very willing to make substitutions/alterations to orders. Very cute, shady outdoor spot to sit and eat. A little quieter than...the main area of Sayulita, which was a welcome change to relax and unwind!More

If you're in town then stroll a ways up Revolution and stop in for a delicious breakfast and coffee. For something different try the Chilaquiles with red sauce or else go with Javier's Omelette... you won't be disappointed.

Finding this place was a little challenging since it’s on the outskirts of the main tourist area but it is worth every penny. The flavours are incredible, the prices are great and the service is prompt and courteous. I highly recommend the pineapple basil agua...Fresca and huevos rancheros.More

Went for a Sunday stroll in Sayulita and walked by this restaurant. It called to me :) Sat outside in a shaded area. The server was super, friendly and accomodating. The food was fresh and healthy and presented colorfully. The limonada naturelle was refreshing and...the organic coffee delish! Did I mention how fare the prices are? Will return to Alquimista very soon . Yum!More
