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).

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.

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.
