El Cafecito was a wonderful place. We went there two times for breakfast. Scrambled eggs, including vegetables etc, cost around $70 MX. Coffee is available at a price of 25$MX. They have soy milk as well. We enjoyed our time. It’s cheap and tasty.

It is a good place, the food is good. We went for breakfast. The waitress could have been more friendly.

Great Mexican coffee here. We stopped here a few times to get a coffee, when we didn't feel like making it at our casa. Friendly staff, and good service. A big plus is the wi-fi works with password needed.

Open for breakfast and lunch. Great coffee and food. A real green salad with olive oil - yum. Hard to find in Mexico. Nice people and welcoming vibe. Wifi works automatically. How great is that.

We are two senior travelers and found this place to have the best coffee and food for breakfast, lunch and snacks. We were on Isla Holbox four days and ate here three times.

We went in low season but it was still busy. The very friendly lady welcomed us and we enjoyed numerous capuchinos, a selection of crepes and egg dishes. It wasn’t expensive and the food and coffee were delicious. Will definitely return!

We had breakfast at El Cafecito because someone recommended it to us. We did not regret it. The coffee is delicious (try coffee de la olla) and the breakfast was great (pancakes and fruits).
