A cosy, bijou cafe serving delicious vegan food and strong Mexican coffee
Having already had lunch we were not very hungry but we were off to see a show at one of the local hotels (Rock of Ages – it was not very good) so we thought we should top our tummies off with some tasty vegan delights just in case we felt a bit peckish later in the evening.
Again we relied on the Happy Cow app to find us somewhere to eat in Puerto Morelos and it was a surprise to find that in a town of this size there were a few different options. Strolling around we found Los Robles a bijou, brightly decorated cafe located on one of the main streets through the town. It looked so welcoming and luckily for us the one outside sitting area had just become available as we walked up.
The menu had so many tasty options, but we wanted something very light to eat and were tempted by the vegan ceviche and mini empanadas, which came in a plate of three – so we ordered a mix. To wash our food down we chose to try the Mexican coffee, thinking this might help us stay away during the show.
It took a little while for the food to be served, which was surprising since we were about the only people in the cafe, but we were in Mexico so things always take a bit longer. But, it was worth the wait as the food looked very tasty, especially the ceviche which had been compressed into a colourful cone. The flavours were spectacular. This was also true for the tiny empanadas. A gap was filled in our tummies and we felt very content.
If we travel through this area again we’ll definitely come back and try out Las Robles again.
