“Best little place in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2009

so we found this little restaurant and got hooked on the coffee! omg the best cafe latte- best juevos revueltos a la mexicana - its like the kitchen cant make anything bad. we went every morning for breakfast and twice for dinner - the chef and cook both really care about the food they're making. Amanda (the owner / morning waitress) made the breakfast and lunch menu and its all really good. She's an incredibly sweet and friendly person and has really good tips on where to go and what to see while there. They has a really eclectic, but not over the top, decor and garden for brunches and dinner. Having breakfast and good conversation every morning was definately one of the best parts of our trip and we're really happy that we stumbled in.

“Great food, great ambiance, don't miss this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2009

Trece Lunas is a gem of a cafe with excellent, excellent food. On a sweltering day, the cement walls bring the temperature down a few notches, making diners want to sit and enjoy the artwork on the walls and the travel books available for review. The service is friendly (Amanda is a sweetheart) and the food is outstanding. I had a delicious omelet breakfast there and also a veggie sandwich that beat the socks off any I'd had before. Again, don't miss this restaurant. You'll love it.

“Delicioso!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2009

I had lunch and breakfast here (yes, the cafe is excellent) and both were wonderfully fresh and yummy; clearly the folks in the kitchen care deeply about food. Also, the design of the restaurant is very cool - literally and figuratively - perfect for this part of Mexico. If you're in Tulum don't miss out having a meal here. Amanda is very helpful and gracious.

“Excellent food & service in a hip, minimalist coffee house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2009

After eating several meals in Tulum at Trece Lunas, I can honestly say it's the most consistently good food I've ever had when traveling, period. Carlo, the chef (and designer of the property), whips up whatever's fresh and puts his own spin on it --- grilled steak on a bed of avocado salad, grilled peanut satay shrimp, and snapper with grilled vegetables were offered as a "trio" for dinner last night. And for roughly $15 US, a serious deal!

And the coffee is out of this world, don't miss out!!!

“Best Breakfast on Tulum Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2009

Great breakfast on Tulum Beach. The Huevos Rancheros and Fruit & Yogurt bowls were fabulous. Coffee was great and environment was nice. Also great guide books to read to figure out what you want that day. Service is a little crazy, but also amusing
