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).

Very nice staff, refreshing smoothies, great crepas, lots of menu choices, all made from scratch. Street side seating with a mellow atmosphere. Coffee was awesome, just like all the coffee on Holbox.

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.
