4. Local Coffee + Shop

A French bakery located in the heart of Puerto Morelos! This cute café is sure to not only serve up some amazing baked goods and coffee, but also a hearty breakfast. Located on Ninos Heroes just a block from the Oxxo.
6. Muelle Once
HOURS: Open from 8am-11pm EVERYDAY
Breakfast with a view?! Yes, PLEASE! Muelle Once is located right on the water (in Hacienda Morelos) and they serve up some amazing breakfast (and lunch… and dinner!). Not only that, the Bloody Mary is a meal in itself and comes HIGHLY recommended.
7. Cafe Amancia
HOURS: Tuesday to Sunday 7am-9pm, Monday CLOSED
One of the first coffee shops in Puerto Morelos, Cafe Amancia has withstood the test of time and for a good reason. It’s great! The food, the atmosphere, the best location in town. Be sure to stop in for some breaky and people watching! It’s located right off of the main square.
8. Lola y Moya
HOURS: Wednesday to Monday 8am-3pm, Tuesday CLOSED
Their slogan is “The coffee shop that makes you feel at home!” And it’s true- this place feels like home! The owner and staff are extremely inviting and the menu is full of made-from-scratch items. It’s a must try. Our favorite? The breakfast bagel with a banana coffee! Yum! Located on Rafael Melgar just a half block from the port side Chedraui.
9. La Bodega Verde
HOURS: Monday to Saturday 8am-3pm
If you haven’t experienced La Bodega Verde, now’s the time to check it out! The menu is a great mix of traditional and non-traditional Mexican breakfast but the atmosphere is really what gives this place its charm! The dining area is like a secret garden. Who doesn’t want to eat breakfast in a secret garden? Located on Avenida Timon in Villas 1 of the colonia.
10. Cafe Layla
HOURS: Wednesday to Monday 8am-10pm, Tuesday CLOSED
Cafe Layla is another spot that has been around for a long time! And the breakfasts are DELICIOUS. While the menu does offer some meat options, it’s made up of mainly vegetarian and vegan dishes. But no matter what your diet consists of, this place is a must try! Located on the port side on Rafael Melgar.
