Tiny, quaint, cute place for breakfast on Isla Holbox. Good value in the large bowls of fresh fruit with granola and yogurt, and thrilled to find Lipton black tea (hard to find real black tea on Holbox). Restaurant is very small with very few tables inside and the outside picnic tables bake in the sun. Be prepared to wait...

Went here for breakfast and was very pleased with both the food and service. Simple, Mexican breakfast. Picnic table on the street.

Walking around the main square we asked a local vendor where she preferred to eat breakfast and she recommended Limincito. Good food, good service. Nothing really special but satisfying meal and we liked the artistic walls. Check it out.

We adore this little place! It's so small, but the food is fresh and tasty. Our favorites: chicken enchiladas (best I've ever had), Chilaquiles with eggs, queso fundido with chorizo, and the fish tacos. We've had the same young waiter every time we've eaten there, and he's great, too. We probably ate here more than any other restaurant in Holbox.... More

This is a lovely place to enjoy a typical mexican breakfast. The chilaquiles are 'to die for', very tasty. All other dishes are also good. And its an authentic place and a good spot to watch the street life.

Had a great time there with my family, the service was great and the food amazing for a great price, the only issue is that it's a very small place, but it's part of it's charm. As everything in Holbox, you need to take everything relaxed, if you go in a hurry... you should never go to Holbox.

We loved this place. On isla holbox restaurants are only open if the owner is in the right mood...but this place was always open, also on mondays (where most of the restaurants are closed). Service was really good and fast. We had cevice, shrimp tacos and fried fish. Everything was really good, tasted fresh. What I liked the most is... More

My girlfriend and I had breakfast here nearly every day on our 3 week visit. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious, fresh and authentic. The Mexican eggs were great and we saw the chef making them with fresh ingredients and lots of passion. It's a must for at least breakfast and we had ceviche which was also... More

We ate there a couple of times and each time we've had chicken fajitas and they were good. Not extraordinary but solid good.
