This place was just across from the hostel I stayed in. It had the nicest people and the most amazing breakfasts! They had a selection of breakfasts from all across the world and some absolutely delicious cheese. The coffee is amazing the smoothies fresh, and there is even a selection of books to read. I didn't even bother going anywhere... More

Had a lot of fun riding with a friend in a rented golf cart around the Island and stopping to shop along the way. It was very hot but in a couple of the shops they offered us bottled water which we gladly accepted. One shop allowed us to use their restroom but some will make you pay. I did... More

First of all the homemade coconut, mango and pineapple jam here was to die for. Spreading it over the toast from the bread she baked was great! I wish I could have this as my breakfast toast every morning. For 90 pesos I got toast, jam, freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee and a Mexican dish off two eggs over beans... More

The owners are very nice and the fresh bread and jam are great. I loved the coffee. I had the American breakfast and it was just the right amount of food.

During our one week stay on Isla Mujeres, we went to Elements for our first and last breakfasts. 4 small tables on the front deck (on a small street with very little traffic) and more seating inside. We were able to sit outside both times which was really nice. Not only was the food and coffee delicious, but the service... More

We always eat here several times on each visit. Besides the wonderful bread and homemade jams, this time we tried the homemade Museli. Filled with lots of fresh fruit it was very tasty and very filling. Our new favorite

Ate here on the tail-end of our trip. Huge omelet, potatoes, and bacon. You're each served two pieces of thick toasted homemade bread along with several different blends of their homemade jam. Juice, coffee or tea is included in the price. That's a bargain ! Wish we would have found it earlier. Seating is limited

Great little place. Our server was very sweet. We ordered the Mexican and the omlette. Both came with homemade bread and jam, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee. We also ordered the Swiss potatoes. Plenty of food for two. Only 215 pesos. Recommended!
