Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we want you to enjoy a delicious meal before taking on the day and exploring the Riviera Maya, because with everything there is to do around here you’ll be needing the extra fuel. Here is a list of our favourite places for breakfast.
La Cueva del Chango
A favourite among locals and tourists, they offer an extensive list of Mexican items. Chilaquiles, fresh fruit bowls with yogurt and granola, all types of Mexican eggs and be sure to get a fresh juice! They also have a couple of vegan and vegetarian options. There’s often a 15 minute wait to get a table, so don’t wait until you’re starving to get there!
Breakfast is served daily from 8 am until 1 pm.
Address: 38th Av between 5th and the beach
Home-made french bakery where you’ll find the best breads and pastries in town. It’s hard to resist not buying everything because it all looks and smells so good. Omelettes, savoury croissants, sweet crepes are just a few of the items you can choose from to satiate your palate.
They serve breakfast daily from 8 am to 1 pm
Address: 5th Av and 34th street
The Thompson Hotel – C Grill
For a seaside brunch we like going to C-Grill at the Thompson. Chef Pedro works with responsible local farmers to deliver quality and fresh ingredients. The C-Grill omelette is worth a try and they also have a “healthy” menu for those of us who have had a few too many tacos and margaritas.
With locations all over the country, this has been a long time favourite among Mexicans. They have all of your typical Mexican breakfasts as well as omelettes, some healthier choices and vegan and vegetarian options as well.
They serve breakfast Monday through Sunday from 7 am to 11:30 am and are located on 5th Av between 10 and 12
One of the best brunches in town with excellent service. To accompany your hot breakfast, a complimentary basket of pastries, fresh fruit plate with yogurt, honey and granola, coffee or tea and natural juice are a few of the things that stand out from Imprevist.
They open every day at 7 and breakfast is served until 11 and brunch is served until 2 pm.
Address: 1st Av North between 14th and 16th
The Pitted Date
The Pitted Date gets an honourable mention on this list for those seeking a vegan option. Their breakfast burritos, omelettes, smoothies and croissants are the perfect way to start your day by fuelling your body with superfoods!
They’re open from Tuesday until Sunday from 8 am until 7pm and are located on 26th between 5th and 10th.
