Absolutely loved the Spanish tortillas / omelettes at this place. They were fresh, fluffy and fat! There were good options for vegetarians and vegans. We had a veggie Spanish tortilla and loved every bite.

This place was clean, had very friendly service, and the food was excellent. The omelet was light and airy and delicious. It was large enough I took some with me and had a light breakfast the next day - and very good cold as well. Couldn't recommend it more!

We were so surprised to find an actual vegan breakfast option (other than fruit & toast) on the island!! What a treat this little place is, we ordered fresh juice and the vegan spanish tortilla with added sundried tomatoes, it also came with bread. Everything was so delicious, we actually ate breakfast here twice! The service was awesome and it... More

So yummy! and ridiculously filling...I could barely finish one torte and could have probably shared one with my husband or saved half for lunch. BUT, I gobbled it up because it was so yummy! Great value and adorable couple that runs the space. Clean, fresh and easy.

We have been at that restaurant almost every day during our holbox vacation. They make a spanish tortilla (like a frittata) that is amazingly good! We would order the double one and take half of it with us for an afternoon snack. I also had a sandwich that was made with focaccia bread that was also very good. The service... More

We discovered this breakfast lunch place in the last days of our stay here. The best food i have eating on the island. There is lots of super good food to be found on the island but this restaurant is the absolute best. I think that pretty much sums it up!!

I can't be more blunt than to say you must eat here! The Spanish tortas are spectacular! I like to eat half for breakfast and save half for my tapas when I come off the beach. It's a lovely little ritual I have with myself! Service is delightful, and it's a nice little spot located in the zocalo under Los... More

The frozen coffee frap and fruit shakes were perfect. Limited hours and menu but a perfect spot for breakfast or lunch on the Holbox town square. Fresh Mexican fare with fair prices

they serve an awesome potato/egg pancake thing(I forget what they call it on their menu) but it was SO GOOD, and can be made with different optional ingredients as desired! Also the salads are awesome and the prices fantastic! F Great value!

Stopped here for breakfast. We were promptly greeted by a smiling waitress. We had the goat cheese and apple salad along with the Chicago egg breakfast. Both were delicious and reasonably priced for the island. The ingredients were fresh and the portions were perfect. They also served fresh bread and a lovely Chipotle mayo to go along with everythig else.... More
