Very friendly atmosphere. It is like eating in your garden. Coffee and meals are delicious.

The service is good too. One of the owners is a french canadian.

“A must visit for Zipolite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is far and away the best breakfast in town. The atmosphere is like being in the garden of someone's home. Good service, good food. We could eat there every day.

“Oasis of goodness...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

THE BEST place to have breakfast / brunch / lunch in Zipolite!

First, it's "Orale Cafe" and it's at the West end of the main street or "adoquin" on the way to Shambala / Casa Sol.

They offer a complete breakfast menu plus a few lunch items. Fantastic mix of traditional Mexican plates plus your North American classics. Try the "huevos divorciados" or the fantastic BLT. On the lighter side, their granola is very good. The prices are good so are he portions. The presentation and timing is perfect.

They have a REAL espresso coffee maker and make the best coffees around Zipolite. Their fresh juices are also excellent.

They are open every day except Tuesday or Wednesday ( no sure... ) from 8am to something like 2 pm. They are sometimes quite busy but they have a great 'lounge' space to wait while you enjoy your juice or coffee in their beautiful garden with relaxing music. WELL worth the small wait!

Thank you Jean-Francois and Yvan for your great place. I can't wait to go back!

“Sweet, Cozy, Quiet, Garden Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

This perfect place is open only for breakfast. I think it's closed on Sundays and Mondays, but not totally sure. The food is excellent and prepared with care. It's a perfect spot to escape from the usual beach and Roca Blanca scenes. It's tucked away just west of the main drag. To find it, follow the road to Shambala. There's a small gate along the road with a sign "Oreal" that marks the entrance. Be sure to thank Ivan who owns the place and is the cook - he is a great guy!!!

“Best breakfast and best hosts !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2011

Ora Le Cafe is a small hidden gem in Zipolite that serves excellent breakfast with home-made fresh Bagels, quiche and the absolute best Huevos Divorciados of the place and maybe of all Mexico !
Set in a cute little garden, the restaurant's hosts Jean-Francois (Canada) and Ivan (Mexico) are simply charming and make you feel at home. They will be more than happy to point out what to do and where to go in and around Zipolite.

The place is open daily from 8 til 3 PM and boasts great good, fresh juices and well-chosen smooth music. Go alone or with a bunch. It's at the western end of Main-Street Zipolite calle Adoquin or, from the beach, just behind Lo Cosmico.

Enjoy amigos !
