Our 2nd visit to Merida in 2 months. We didn't get a chance to visit Cafe Pop the last time. This is a cute place. Waiters are friendly and they have extensive menu. Delicious tasty Mexican breakfast with coffee and juice. It's so cheap you can't beat it. Food was good and hot (which we find is not always the... More

Cafeteria Pop is a great choice for breakfast in downtown Mérida before heading off to those Maya archeological sites. Get the huevos rancheros, café con leche, and corn tortillas to get your day off right.

So so so. Food uninspired, service lackadaisical. Coffee weak and watery. If I had read a few reviews I would have continued walking.

We first came here for breakfast. The servings were large and tasty, at a fair price. Service was really, really slow, but it was only 8:00 and museums don't open until 10, so no problem. Based on a very satisfying breakfast experience we returned for dinner. Huge mistake. My wife ordered sopa de lima, it was refrigerator cold. She sent... More

Wanted to try Pibil dish which is one of the specialities of the region and noticed this was on the menu. The chicken dish was cooked in banana leaves with a variety of spices and was delicious. However it came on it's own with no sides, not even rice. This had to be ordered at an additional cost which didn't... More

Eggs, bacon, juice, toast, coffee 75 pesos. Order additional plates if you are hungry as the basic breakfast was not very filling. Fast paced, chaotic, very busy. They do have and use AC. Very slow service - understaffed.

Cafe Pop is next door to the elegant El Portico del Pellegrino and they have same kitchen and owner. They have been around forever in Merida and both deserve better reviews than some of the upstarts, particularly those claiming to be Italian. My wife is from Rome where we have a place. For an inexpensive casual meal or coffee, Cafe... More
