“Melt in your mouth cupcakes!”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

There is a reason why you will find me at Barlito almost every day for lunch when I'm on the island. Actually, there are several.

The food - You can't go wrong here. The food is amazing, everything is homemade and made from scratch. Fresh baked bread, smoked meats, fresh everything. The portions are large and filling. One of my favorites is the One Eyed Cajun panini. Three kinds of cheese, smoked pulled pork and bbq sauce. To die for. I also love any of the chicken sandwiches. And the desserts??? If you are too lazy to chew, try a cupcake. I don't know how Tiffany does it, but her cupcakes and so moist that they actually just melt in your mouth. As an added bonus, you can get shot glasses of milk with your dessert. How cute is that?!

The people- Brad and Tiffany are the best. Friendly, sweet, full of energy and they do so much to help promote other businesses and causes on the island. You'll love them. Their waitress is adorable, too. Big smile and very attentive without being overly so.

I love that you can sit at a table out on the street and people watch.

We were super clever this trip and saved half of a sandwich for our early flight the morning we had to leave. Popped it in the frig the day before, grabbed some chips at the airport and enjoyed our official 'final Isla meal' of the trip in the air. It made leaving just a little easier.

“Amazing Food and Amazing People”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed on the island for a week back in Oct. 2012, we ate once halfway thru our stay and came back everyday after that. The food was amazing!!! Best meals were at Barlitos! Great prices. cozy spot right on the corner! The owners are the sweetest people in the world and make you feel like you are sitting in your kitchen at home! If you stay on Isla Mujeres, you MUST visit this place!

The best place for breakfast on the island! The cinnamon buns rock, and the bagels are boiled and fresh baked! Seating is tough though... get there early!
