Had final breakfast takeouts. Everything freshly made, cheap, and delicious. Fun little authentic spot with a few tables under roof. Right in the middle of the town plaza.

We ate a late breakfast at Imelda's between our dives off of Akumal Beach - the service was friendly and quick, and the meal was tasty and a good value. It is small, but it was not overrun. I would eat here again.

Amazing lunch at a great price! Fresh food made from scratch, when they run out that is it unless she has time to run to store. The beef fajitas tasted delicious. Highly recommend, we will be back!

Small mother/daughter restaurant that we only found because someone had recommended it. It was inexpensive and the omelettes were wonderful.
