Restaurant Review: Cafe Martin

Posted November 17, 2014 by Kay Walten in Food & Drink,Riviera Maya Restaurants


"Happiness is Homemade" That's the mantra at Cafe Martin. Everything at Cafe Martin is homemade, by Canadian expats who made Playa del Carmen home in 2008. Let's start with the baked goods.  Its easy to spend a morning sipping a cup of coffee and enjoying apple pie, chocolate chip banana bread,  or if you are like me cheese cake is a fine way to start the day.  Made fresh, you can choose from a variety of cakes, pies and cookies.   Get it to go, if you prefer and don't forget to get a...

mivida restaurant tulum

Beautifully decorated on the beach in Tulum. The setting itself is incredible and makes any dinner out memorable. Mivida is a tapas restaurant featuring Mediterranean and Italiana cuisine. Start off with one of their signature cocktails, the pina coladas are one of the best.  Then graze your way through the evening with ceviche, tuna tostadas, or be adventuresome and try their eggplant quiche with goat cheese, chocolate and a balsamic reduction.   One of my personal favorites are the...
