Since I have been eating here they have changed owners and staff a number of times which has really effected the quality of the food and service. In general the food is actually good there are lots of healthy options that are delicious. The issue here is that it is actually very expensive considering you are usually buying a sandwich... More

During my stay in Playa Del Carmen we went to fruta madre most days for lunch. The food never disappoints! The service can sometimes be slow but with only one man in the kitchen it is understandable. I recommend the antioxidant smoothie, the club sandwich, or the panino norteno. They are all great options!

Great atmosphere, good portion sizes, food descriptions are accurate and the presentation is great. They are pet and kid friendly as well. Easy location and outdoor seating. Our order was first incorrect and they insisted on fixing it immediately. Friendly fast service and awesome fruit water and drink selection.

This place is delicious. Refreshing juices, great omelets and sandwiches. There is a little play area for the kiddos that has toys and a movie playing as well.

I am sitting in here now still waiting the smoothie that failed to come with our other drinks 15 mins ago..... Clearly the staff are not rushed but they still can not manage much of a smile. The mango smoothie with basil was completely delicious. Awesome combination. Others have said it was inexpensive, I think it is pricey like most... More

I am so glad we found this little place. It was the only place I liked in Playa Del Carmen. The smoothies and sandwiches were delicious and healthy. It was pretty warm so everything cooked us off and made us feel good.

Really good food and fresh made drink. And at really low prices. Omelets with cheese and vegetables for 90 pesos and lemon and ginger juice for 20 pesos. That's a great price for such good food...
