 I like it, elaborate dishes , some simple, but all good.
Good coffee Elaborate dishes, really Mexican but not just the tacos everyone knows, well dishes, some looking like art Breakfast from a simple one to a more deep preparation meal. ComfyIs kind of a chill but high end locals come here, but chill, nothing fancy. Ask for copa of berries or Something in nogada, and cafe lechero. Is also bakery, good fresh bread.

 Yummy
Had brunch here, it was delicious! They serve a variety of bread/pastries in a basket at every table. I had a few different selections from the basket and they all were terrific with my coffee. I ordered something similar to chilaquiles with a spicy red sauce, I enjoyed it. Seemed everyone at my table was pleased with what they ordered.

 Awesome!!
Came here for the first time today. The food was amazing. I had the traditional eggs Benedict and my friend had the eggs maximiliano. Both dishes tasted amazing. The waitress was quick, helpful and polite. Love the ambience! Overall a great restaurant.

 Awesome spot for breakfast
Get yourself off the hotel zone strip and go where the locals do. What a treat this was. Found it online and headed over for breakfast. We found an extensive menu and a wide variety of selections.The food was very good, service excellent. A modern, fashionable decor. Immaculate including the bathroom. The prices were very reasonable. We were there on our last day in Cancun - I would have loved to returned for dinner.

 Still one of my favorites in Cancún
I still love it and everyone I take enjoys it. The menu is so interesting and they have some of my own unusual favorites such as tostados with avocado and crickets and huitlacoche, which they will cook with cheese. So yummy!!!!

 Stunning ambiance and quality
We actually visited the pastry shop, not the restaurant. It is located on an unassuming street on the way to downtown. You could easily miss it. We ordered pastries, empanadas, sandwiches, ice cream, and coffee. Every item was delicious and presented well. The pastry shop itself was very stylish; it would have fit in Westood just as easily as Cancun. All in all the best quality we found for anything we ate in Cancun.

 Best Mexican Restaurant I could find!
I was looking for a restaurant like this for the 2 weeks I was in the Cancun area. I found many pretty good ones, but this one was by far the best and I wish I had found it the first day! There were so many things I never did get to try, but I did go there the last 3 nights! They have excellent choices and some really wonderful regional (de Mexico) cuisine. I cannot wait to go back. The service is also excellent.

 WOW! Pastries, coffee and great breakfasts!
Our conciguere recommend a different place across the street from La Pasteleria. However, we noticed a lot of locals entering La Pasteleria and followed them in. Greatest find in Cancun. We took the R-2 bus, and enjoyed their complementary pastries while we ordered our breakfasts. The pastries alone are worth the trip. Coffee - freshly brewed, individual drip cups, siphon coffee or espresso drinks - order as you prefer. It is hard enough finding a good, non-Starbucks, espresso shop, in Cancun. La Pasteleria offers other brew methods that others don't offer. The breakfast plates were excellent. Watch out for their red, thin hot sauce - it is HOT, but tasty. Just use some caution because it is good. A lot of local business people tend to meet here. Staff is friendly and prompt. No complaints. I hear they are moving to Las Americas plaza.

We go here every time we're in Cancun as the food is excellent and reasonably priced. They give you a basket of pastries while you wait for your meal. Yummy! Excellent pastries and bakery case, always get some to go.Take the R2 bus to Walmart. It's a few blocks before Walmart on the right side (black awning and parking valet out front).

 Outstanding food and service
This little gem in Cancun away from the crowds and the tourists is an excellent spot for high quality food and pastries. The place is clean, the service is excellent friendly and super customer service oriented. Nothing compared to the service at other places where the staff is tired of the crowds. I had the "crepa arrachera," my husband had "enfrijoladas with scrambled eggs," and my son had "huaraches with cecina." All were delicious, yet my favorite the crepa. We were told that there are two more spots one at Malecon in Cancun and another one at PDC across from Centro Maya. This one is hard to find it is right behind the Chrysler dealership and next to Mitsubishi.

 A great Locals restaurant
A great, small restaurant with outstanding pasteries. We only ate breakfast here, but it was outstanding. Mostly locals as customers. 1/12 blocks from the downtown Walmart, easily reachable by the R-2 bus from the Hotel Zone. Worth the 10.5 peso bus ride for sure. And besides, it gets you away from all of those touristy spots in the Hotel Zone. Try it for breakfast. You will not be disappointed.

 Delicious Cafe de Olla
Invited to join our new friends (locals, and staff from the hotel) for desert and coffee. We have never had cafe de olla before, but enjoyed watching the unique process by which is made. Very delicious! Enjoyed it so much, we are looking at ways to begin making it at home! The pastries were also excellent. A very pleasant experience.

 Excellent place for breakfast
The service here makes you feel welcomed; very attentive, patient and polite. The atmosphere is very calm and chilled. A very good way to start the day. The cafe porter 65 cold brew coffee is the most satisfying coffee I have so far in cancun. The enmoladas poblano and chilaquiles are flavorful and generously portioned. We had a very good breakfast here.

 La Pasteleria es bueno!
The restaurant itself is lovely, the food is wonderful and so are the prices. Including delicious chocolate ice cream for dessert, my meal was about $18 Canadian at the current exchange rate. I wish we would have found it before our last night in Cancun. It really is a great place to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner.

 Glad we made the time to go!
We were headed to mercado 28 and stopped at this clean gem. They serve breakfast Til 1. This place is clean and friendly- and not touristy.We were served delicious little rolls filled with cream cheese. The kids had mango and strawberry smoothies that were very fresh.They did have English menus but there was a Mayan crepe we were interested in and they brought out a sample.The potions are large and out lunch crepes came with a delicious former salad with a wonderful house dressing. Now the whipped cream strawberry crepe was made with a non aerated cream- but was large and decadent. Chocoholic teen was not disappointed in the crepe.Not cheap but really delightful and they hadan enclosed smoking section.

 Best Hidden Gem In All of Cancun!
You're gonna have to get out of the hotel zone to find it, but once you do, you'll make this your #1 breakfast place forever in Cancun. The service is impeccable, the food and the pastries are out of this world - the coffees are the perfect temperature. Our waitress started talking to us once she realized we weren't local, and I told her we were in Cancun for my fiancee's 24th birthday, which had passed about 5 days ago. The waitress went and got her a birthday cake and came with 3 others and sang her happy birthday - we were floored!

 Delicious downtown hideaway!
On the bus route to Walmart, you will see La Pasteleria just a few blocks before the Walmart stop. Serves delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. I love the salads with goat cheese and the crepes are delicious, both the dinner ones and the dessert ones, too. I especially like the peach and cheese crepe. They are known for their specialty coffees and are served in glass cups so you can see the layers. You can ask for the "English" menu. I have tried many of the entrees and they are all good.

 Yummy desserts
Me and my husband walked past this place few times on our way to Mercado 28 as we were staying in the downtown area, we were glad we made the stop as their ice creams are amazing! You really get the flavours of the ice cream so well, impressed with my chocolate truffle cake too and thought it was ok price for 39 Mexican dollars. We ended up buying the edible gift packs as presents. We didn't try any of the savoury dishes so not sure on them but the desserts are definitely worth trying, and they also make lovely decorations on your plate too.

 The best crepe ever!
I had the Azteca crepe and it was amazing. My husband had the Tenoch - egg dish. We went for breakfast and they immediately served rolls from their bakery and we got coffee (which was very good too)! It reminds me of a European bakery. We live here in Cancun and this was our first time to try this restaurant. We really liked it and will go back again!

We loved this place last year and again this year. We ate there twice this year for breakfast and it was wonderful. The sweet bread basket they give everyone was emptied quickly at our table and we took desserts to go back to our resort.Take the R2 or R15 bus from the hotel zone to downtown. It's on the right, right before the Walmart/Market 28 bus stop. If you get off at this stop, you'll have to walk a few blocks back. Reasonable prices and awesome food.

 Dinner a real treat for a Canadian couple
My husband and I went out for dinner with a local couple on December 18th. The restaurant was wonderful and provided us with incredible dishes we had never tried before. We each had a crepe, not something we would have thought to normally order for dinner; thank goodness we accepted advice because they were great, filling and with rich and unexpected flavour combinations. My husband ordered the Aztec crepe and I ordered one that was recommended but not on the English menu-maybe it was called something Montezuma crepe? We also had the Mayan and the Mexican coffee and enjoyed watching the process for making the Mayan coffee, a process as elaborate as the making of Japanese tea! The cost was very reasonable, easily significantly less expensive than what we would have paid in Canada for a dinner for four. In addition, there is a children's play area that kept our friends' 6 year old son happily occupied throughout the meal. We viewed the vast selection of pastries downstairs but were way too full to buy anything more. I certainly recommend a meal here while in Cancun. Thank you to the couple who recommended it to us!

 Breakfast & Pastries Worth the Adventure
This great pastry shop and restaurant is not in the "Hotel Zone;" however, we had a car rental and decided to take a little adventure, based on our concierge's recommendation. When we entered the contemporary restaurant, the hostesses just smiled, and an English speaking person made a bee-line to us. (This is a favorite of local people.) I had chicken & cheese enchiladas in green sauce. My husband had tostada with eggs, ham, cheese, etc. Both were delicious. We were offered a basket of 4 kinds of pastries. There was an extra charge (approx. $8 USD), but it was fun to sample. On the way out, we stopped at the pastry display cases, and Erika was very sweet in describing each one. We purchased several pastries which were perfect to take on the plane for snacks - just had to eat them before going through customs. We will definitely return. (And, it's on a main street, so I expect it's on the bus route and a car would not be needed.)

 Great pastries and fulfilling breakfast for a great value
Before I say anything else, let me just say I had to visit this place 3 times during my 7 day trip. That' how good it is. The atmosphere is very cozy and is reminiscent of a cute french pastry shop in Paris. It is located in downtown (most likely a 5-10 minute bus ride away from main Boulevard where you are staying), but its totally worth it. There's even a walmart that is a 3 minutes walking distance, which is always great and was surprisingly better than average US Walmarts. Anyways.. back to this pastry shop..I came here twice for breakfast and once again to get pastries to snack on for the remainder of my trip. No english menus when I visited, but they'll find someone who can translate it for you and answer questions you may have. After I was seated the waitress put a little basket with 4 or 5 different pastries. I thought this was complimentary after reading some of the reviews on here, so I took a bite out of 3 of them to try them, but apparently I was charged for each one I took a bite out of. Nonetheless, they were all scrumptious (especially one filled with cheese and tasted like a cheese danish.)For my main breakfast course, I had a Chilaquiles dish, which consists of corn tortillas that are lightly fried and covered in a sauce of either red/green salsa and shredded chicken or beef, topped with fresh cream, rings of red onion. This was DIVINE! I couldn't finish it all but I did anyways because it was that good! Gives you that good full feeling after a meal. I came here another day and had pancakes. Nothing special, but they were great pancakes. Again with the pastry basket, I figured maybe they mistakenly charged me the other day, but again I was charged only for the ones I had eaten. No big deal as they were not expensive at all. I even bought 3 to go. Overall great experience and great food with great value. A must visit hidden gem.

 Eat breakfast here at least once on your trip! You will not regret it...
I have been traveling to Cancun for over 12 years now and every single time, I make sure that I have at least one breakfast here. The coffee is 100 times better than Starbucks, it has won several awards globally. The deserts are so yummy...you will dream about them when you get back from your trip. The staff is so polite and takes care of you like you are a Queen. Nothing bad to say about this place.

Most tourists will never find this or even venture past the hotel zone to go downtown . This spot is easily looked over . But sooooo worth a special trip . This was the cleanest restaurant I found in cancun . They even wear mouth guards on top of hairnets !!! The pastry s and breakfast was so authentic and delicious . And service was great

Had brunch here, it was delicious! They serve a variety of bread/pastries in a basket at every table. I had a few different selections from the basket and they all were terrific with my coffee. I ordered something similar to chilaquiles with a spicy red sauce, I enjoyed it. Seemed everyone at my table was pleased with what they ordered.

Came here for the first time today. The food was amazing. I had the traditional eggs Benedict and my friend had the eggs maximiliano. Both dishes tasted amazing. The waitress was quick, helpful and polite. Love the ambience! Overall a great restaurant.

 Awesome spot for breakfast
Get yourself off the hotel zone strip and go where the locals do. What a treat this was. Found it online and headed over for breakfast. We found an extensive menu and a wide variety of selections.The food was very good, service excellent. A modern, fashionable decor. Immaculate including the bathroom. The prices were very reasonable. We were there on our last day in Cancun - I would have loved to returned for dinner.

 Dinner a real treat for a Canadian couple
My husband and I went out for dinner with a local couple on December 18th. The restaurant was wonderful and provided us with incredible dishes we had never tried before. We each had a crepe, not something we would have thought to normally order for dinner; thank goodness we accepted advice because they were great, filling and with rich and unexpected flavour combinations. My husband ordered the Aztec crepe and I ordered one that was recommended but not on the English menu-maybe it was called something Montezuma crepe? We also had the Mayan and the Mexican coffee and enjoyed watching the process for making the Mayan coffee, a process as elaborate as the making of Japanese tea! The cost was very reasonable, easily significantly less expensive than what we would have paid in Canada for a dinner for four. In addition, there is a children's play area that kept our friends' 6 year old son happily occupied throughout the meal. We viewed the vast selection of pastries downstairs but were way too full to buy anything more. I certainly recommend a meal here while in Cancun. Thank you to the couple who recommended it to us!

 Breakfast & Pastries Worth the Adventure
This great pastry shop and restaurant is not in the "Hotel Zone;" however, we had a car rental and decided to take a little adventure, based on our concierge's recommendation. When we entered the contemporary restaurant, the hostesses just smiled, and an English speaking person made a bee-line to us. (This is a favorite of local people.) I had chicken & cheese enchiladas in green sauce. My husband had tostada with eggs, ham, cheese, etc. Both were delicious. We were offered a basket of 4 kinds of pastries. There was an extra charge (approx. $8 USD), but it was fun to sample. On the way out, we stopped at the pastry display cases, and Erika was very sweet in describing each one. We purchased several pastries which were perfect to take on the plane for snacks - just had to eat them before going through customs. We will definitely return. (And, it's on a main street, so I expect it's on the bus route and a car would not be needed.)

 Great pastries and fulfilling breakfast for a great value
Before I say anything else, let me just say I had to visit this place 3 times during my 7 day trip. That' how good it is. The atmosphere is very cozy and is reminiscent of a cute french pastry shop in Paris. It is located in downtown (most likely a 5-10 minute bus ride away from main Boulevard where you are staying), but its totally worth it. There's even a walmart that is a 3 minutes walking distance, which is always great and was surprisingly better than average US Walmarts. Anyways.. back to this pastry shop..I came here twice for breakfast and once again to get pastries to snack on for the remainder of my trip. No english menus when I visited, but they'll find someone who can translate it for you and answer questions you may have. After I was seated the waitress put a little basket with 4 or 5 different pastries. I thought this was complimentary after reading some of the reviews on here, so I took a bite out of 3 of them to try them, but apparently I was charged for each one I took a bite out of. Nonetheless, they were all scrumptious (especially one filled with cheese and tasted like a cheese danish.)For my main breakfast course, I had a Chilaquiles dish, which consists of corn tortillas that are lightly fried and covered in a sauce of either red/green salsa and shredded chicken or beef, topped with fresh cream, rings of red onion. This was DIVINE! I couldn't finish it all but I did anyways because it was that good! Gives you that good full feeling after a meal. I came here another day and had pancakes. Nothing special, but they were great pancakes. Again with the pastry basket, I figured maybe they mistakenly charged me the other day, but again I was charged only for the ones I had eaten. No big deal as they were not expensive at all. I even bought 3 to go. Overall great experience and great food with great value. A must visit hidden gem.

 Eat breakfast here at least once on your trip! You will not regret it...
I have been traveling to Cancun for over 12 years now and every single time, I make sure that I have at least one breakfast here. The coffee is 100 times better than Starbucks, it has won several awards globally. The deserts are so yummy...you will dream about them when you get back from your trip. The staff is so polite and takes care of you like you are a Queen. Nothing bad to say about this place.

 Okay this is a must
Most tourists will never find this or even venture past the hotel zone to go downtown . This spot is easily looked over . But sooooo worth a special trip . This was the cleanest restaurant I found in cancun . They even wear mouth guards on top of hairnets !!! The pastry s and breakfast was so authentic and delicious . And service was great

 Great food mexican style
Good restaurant for breakfast, brunch or even dinner. I do not recommend it for lunch because of the crowd. Try the chicken mole, a slightly spicy Mayan dish made with chocolate, something you have not tried before. They have a salmon ceviche that surprised me. The price is very affordable.

 Traditional Mexican food off the hotel zone
We ventured downtown in the evening to try and eat somewhere less touristy (and to go to Walmart). We came upon this restaurant which looked clean and well presented. The waiter spoke English and was helpful. The meals were tasty and decent value. I would certainly recommend this place

 Good Place To Meet For Coffee and Sweet Items!
This week I decided to meet a friend of mine for coffee. We selected La Pasteleria located on Coba Avenue and not too far from Walmart. This place is owned by the same people who run the larger La Pasteleria located on Avenue Bonampak at the rear of Plaza las Americas. The Coba Avenue location has down-sized its space and is only serving breakfast and coffee and cakes during the rest of the day. The place is air conditioned and there is a place for people who smoke. From the hotel zone take the R-2 Bus for $9.5 Pesos and get off on Coba Avenue at Tanka the stop for going to Market/Mercado 28.

 It's changing - sadly. Still, pretty good.
It was my all time favorite restaurant every year for 6 years. I went there a few times a week. The service is still very good. The menu is changing - more limited. I used to think of it as a "Mexican regional cuisine" gem. Many of the things have disappeared from the menu and more fusion type items are appearing such as "Thai salad." This ruins it for me. I can still find some things I like, but I worry they are making bad decisions about their future (from my point of view). Sad.

 Best Breakfast in town
This is the place to go if you're looking for a great waffle or pastry. They bring a basket of pastries to your table to try - all delicious. (Just be aware you are charged for each pastry you eat - they are not complimentary) The service was good and they were quick to find a server that spoke English for us gringos. The atmosphere was pleasant and the restaurant had a contemporary design. Definitely a place to go for a nice selection of Mexican and American dishes.

 Relaxing environmental & yummy food!
I stayed in the hotel zone, and got there by bus (R2). I asked the driver regarding the place, and he dropped me off right in front of the restaurant! It's a nice relaxing restaurant. Plenty of seats. I ordered a kiwi + strawberry juice with steak chilaquiles (green sauce). The steak chilaquile was quite tasty and it was very different than continental breakfast. I also ordered some bread and cookies to go. The food price was reasonable. The steak chilaquile was around 95 peso, and the dish size was decent. The services were okay. Not everybody speaks English, but they were willing to help. Overall, I had a great time over there.

 Great place for lunch
Ate here after a recommendation from the concierge. We were not disappointed. We ate lunch outside. The wait staff even provided menus in English. The food and service was great. I highly recommend getting out of hotel row and chain restaurants and give this place a try. Also walk inside and check out the pastries.

My husband and I stopped overnight in Cancun on the way to and from Cuba. We stopped at Pasteria for breakfast on Jan 21, I only had a piece of pastry but my husband had breakfast and was raving about it. Service was friendly and prompt. We couldn't wait to go back for dinner, after Cuba.

 Best Pastries!
My friend and I went there for breakfast. The pastries were indeed something to rave for. The moment you are seated, they will serve you a basket of rolls from their bakery. The rolls were delicious and there were around 5 to 6 different types of rolls.The basket of breads cost around 50 pesos. It is definitely worth the price as it allows you to try a bit of everything from their bakery. My friend ordered the crepes with cheese and it was delicious. I got the cancun omelette which had cheese and spinach. If you are a vegan or you love spinanch, this may be the dish for you. Their coffee was average. Overall, their pastries were good! If you are looking for a mexican breakfast, this may not be the place for you. However, this cafe is still worth a visit as their pastries were super good. The cafe is more like a french bakery. We spent a total of around 300 pesos for our meals.To go to La Pasteleria, take R2 from downtown cancun and alight when you see Mitsubishi Service Center. The shop is located right opposite Mitsubishi Service Center.

 Great breakfast, good service and coffee
A great place for breakfast....try my favorite the guataguenza (name of a town in Mexico)...it is a tiny bit spicey but not much. Wonderful presentation and excellent combination. If you like chiliquilas, you will like htis also.

 Great value lunch
Make sure if you go at lunch to ask for the executive menu. Its a great deal but they like to hide it. If you are a tourist its great to try some Mexican dishes and for locals great for lunch. For 150 pesos you get 3 courses all of very generous size and drinks. Never had a complaint about the food and I am quite a fussy eater. Great kids area with supervision for those that want to bring the little ones along.

We fancied a nice coffee stopped at La Pasteleria. The coffe was amazing capocuinio and Americano both we exactly as they should be.The challenge is to get out without trying a pastry. It can't be done!They are just too tempting so do not try, endulge with that coffee.

I came here to have a breakfast. And that was a mistake. Eggs with bacon is not tasty (I don't even know how it possible to make such simple dish badly). I've ordered cappuccino, and they brought it with a foam ran down the cup. They have nice sweet rolls, but I'll not try anything else.

 Customer Beware
The food and atmosphere was great. However, CUSTOMER BEWARE...this is the only restaurant I have visited where I was charged for the "complimentary" bread that is offered to patrons upon arrival. Overall, the price wasn't bad; breakfast for two cost us a total 35 U.S. dollars. My concern is being charged for what is offered, in addition to what was ordered. It seems like a deceptive practice to me.

If your looking for breakfast skip it. If your looking for great pastries them it's perfect place! The waitress asked for a tip which I thought was a little odd but maybe that's how they are used to doing it?

 Rude staff!
They have two accounts on trip advisor. Food was delicious, ambient is nice. But the staff is so rude, we haven't any wish to come back again here or recommend to anyone. First we give credit card to waitress m, she didn't take her. She was just saying tip, propina, tip. We told her that we will give her tip via credit card. She didn't understand. She took credit card, we entered pin and give her 10% tip.. She didn't notice. She was holding our CC and just repeating propina propina propina. Thrn we took pen and wrote on paper thet via CC we gave her propina/tip. She gave as back our CC, didn't say thank you, adios, totally nothing. Disaster!
