Lovely ladies, great coffee, great chill-out music and a beautiful dog called Azul. We went a few times as it was just around the corner from Hotel La Palapa where we were staying. It´s nice and peaceful to sit after lunch or maybe just have cake and coffee.

Cafecito was great. We both had focaccia sandwiches which were very good. One sandwich would fill you up nicely. The coffee was good and the jungle atmosphere on the porch was great. We sat under the awning and watched the rain fall which was very relaxing.

Even though this wonderful restaurant is not beach side, it is wonderful watching everyone pass. Breakfast is delicious, wait staff attentive, wifi enabled. I am sorry we didn't discover this little gem until 2 days before we left Holbox. All the food is prepared after you order with nothing pre-made. Coffee was delicious as were the sandwiches. A bit expensive... More
