The best coffee in the island (not Nespresso, Dolce Gusto, Kerouic, and so), real fresh coffee. Food is good, but not great and prices are medium to high. Would go again.

While on Holbox we enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at this Main Street eatery. Good coffee, cocktails and very good meals. We didn't have one meal we didn't like. Most times there were 4 of us dining. Well worth trying.

Came back several times during our two week stay at Holbox. Great service and very friendly staff. Very good coffee! Mostly we stopped by for second breakfast and had hotcakes and fruit salads to eat.

It is difficult to find espresso made in a real coffee machine in the Yucatan peninsula that is not Nespresso, Keurig etc. Here is the real deal. after 2 weeks with no real espresso this was so needed!! The service, the interior of the cafe, and the coffee obviously is stellar!! A must stop in Holbox

We dropped in to Colibrí and enjoyed a few drinks and snacks. The juices are good and varied. We saw other people eating lobster and seafood dishes. The staff are friendly and the decor is very Mexican rustic. The atmosphere is casual but the food is prepared with care. This is a good place for dropping in for a snack,... More

Good but the food has not very good taste, the internet was so slow, service is very good, prices are higher than I expect for the food.

Great breakfast. Hot cakes are awesome not sure what the bad reviews were expecting but this is a very low key island. No posh resorts here. No 5 star restaurants. Service is good and food is good.

What can you say about Holbox, but ahhhhh! We had dinner here one night, and liked it so much we returned for breakfast. Good food, friendly staff, and lovely decor. And don't forget the Margaritas! The fish was fresh,portions were big, everything was perfectly prepared.

Down to earth people, we had few good cocktails at this place. The guacamole is delicious, great snack. Overall, more for a quick coffee or nice cocktails.

Thank KarolaRS
