It was a great experience. Very lovely people working there. Food was great and not expensive. Coffee and fresh juice already included in the price. Definitely recommend visit that lovely spot.

This is one of those places that I decided to try based on reviews. I still can't understand why it is so popular. The menu is very limited, the food was not only not great, but terrible. We asked for bread and they said they had none. Service is slow - I am used to slow in Mexico, and in... More

hello Opinionmia guess, you just had bad luck that day. these are busy times for us. our food is straight homemade, so under no circumstances we go out and buy from any street vendor for our customers, much less run to the corner store and buy Bimbo bread. most reviews give us excellent ratings for our homemade food. you may...

We spent 5 days in tulum and this was our favorite breakfast. The setting is beautiful and wait staff friendly. The hangover breakfast includes juice (delicious) and coffee. The bacon, sausage, eggs, toast, and mashed potatoes were all amazing. Wish we discovered it before our last meal. Would recommend! 115 pesos I think.

Make your way to the garden for a zen-like experience. Recommend the hangover and deli breakfast. Staff is amazing.

This is not a dash in, order, eat your food and get out restaurant. This is a special place to enjoy with special friends. The pace is leisurely even tho the place may be nearly empty or full. Each plate is prepared individually with love and care. So, be ready to enjoy leisurely service, great food, and the company you... More

This place is super cute, a bit off the beaten track. We enjoyed a big breakfast and fresh squeezed juice, coffee was a bit strong. We enjoyed the atmosphere and service. Probably the best Tulum breakfast option in town.

Going to a place for breakfast for several years and you always find a consistent quality and freshness that is above the competition on main street. The egg dishes are always cooked correctly, fresh juice, hot coffee and the best rye bread around. Always a pleasure to talk with Micaella and see her take care of her guests. The surprise... More

Great breakfast of a non Mexican food. Amazing kraut best ever. Ask what is special of the day is. One day got a whole pork shank that was... More

.......the moans and groans of the morning after were quickly healed by the delicate touch of Mika's superb Hangover breakfast. Excellent coffee, quite garden setting off the hustle and bustle of the Tulum streets, Eclectic group of locals and tourists all taking full advantage of the endless coffee refills. You must go, Azafran is on my always go, always love,... More
