Three years after being the last time in the island, we come back expecting positive changes, but what we find are negatives everywhere. El Cafecito, we were there every morning for our coffee and crepes, or cake, or whatever, the last time we were there. On this last (and yes, last, because we will not go back to Holbox!) we...

The breakfast at El Cafecito was average. It is a cute place to sit and enjoy your juice, but the food was nothing special.

They offer quite a lot of varieties of food and drinks and good food worths waiting! We visit this Cáfe almost everyday during our stays and tried out several things such as guacamole sauce, hummus, fresh juice, omelette, fruit salad with yogurt, etc. The atmosphere here was really good and relaxing. The waitress was friendly and funny :) Btw, they... More

I liked the frappucino and the sandwiches are also ok, but the service is very slow. There are few tables and therefor it is often all occupied.

Nice place, with nice music and attention. The juices are natural made with fresh fruit. There is wifi too. It's ideal for brunch or breakfast. The owner is the same of Casa Azul hotel in Holbox that I really recommend. Excellent value for money.

Great breakfast. The waitress was very friendly. She didnt speak much english but made sure we learned a few words of spanish by naming the plates in spanish when we ordered them, wich I thought was nice! Juice and smoothies are good. I had the pancakes and they were delicious.

We had lunch there on a Monday when many places are closed in the island, we understood that they were very busy and were told that it was going to take 20-25 mins to get our food, it was actually more than 40 mins. We ordered focaccia and croissants, the table next to us waited about 30 mins for 2... More

Ordered the Jamon and eggs and it came with a great trio of picante, Chipotle, and chimichurry sauces. Mixed up the perfect heat combination. Very very good chimichurry. Juice is fresh squeezed to order.lots of pastries to choose from and crepes.coffee is made to order.

There is a sign posted saying "We're Slow Food, not fast food. Enjoy your vacation" and they were right. Both dishes we ordered were exactly as promised on the menu and by our lovely waitress. Definitely worth the wait. Menu offered hot breakfast (eggs, etc.) as well as crepes and croissant pastries. Wish I could have tried them all! Smoothies... More

We ordered coffee and had two very tasty crêpes for lunch. Really a good value for money compared with other restaurants on the island. The waiters are friendly and speak english very well. Definitely a place to go for coffee, breakfast or lunch!
