Breakfast alert! If you are looking for a beach-side leisurely breakfast with all the fixings, Sahara Café could be your spot. Breakfast out is a luxury all of us can afford, and Sahara Café with its view of the sea makes this breakfast spectacular!

Stunning View with a More Than Complete Breakfast

This Soliman Bay restaurant review is for people who are not staying at the hotel. The hotel restaurant is open to the public and has a separate breakfast menu for non-guests. We love the choices they offer and it is a full breakfast! Parking is onsite and access to the restaurant is easy. Walk to the front reception, turn right and follow the wooden walkway to the restaurant and the Caribbean Sea.

But before we even talk about the food, let’s talk about the ambiance and the view. We sat at a table right in front of the beach. If you are hoping for a sea view without the sea breeze, their full length windows take away the breeze but not the view. If you like the breeze, you can open the full length window as little or as much as you would like. You are in control! Some tables are further away from the sea if you prefer but the view is always in site.

Sahara Café Breakfast Menu

Breakfast for the public is a prix-fixe menu. All you have to do is choose from each section, so no big decisions early in the morning. It is not a la carte, it is one price, one choice, from each section.

First decide between coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Then pick your juice, which are all freshly squeezed and prepared. Next choose from their list of seasonal fruits which come with yogurt, granola and local honey. Next up is your eggs. They have a great selection of egg dishes, omelets, or a healthy tortilla. All dishes come with bacon and a grilled tomato. Yum!

The morning we ventured to Sahara, we had eggs benedict without the hollandaise (yes, we did ask for eggs benny without salsa!) and a ham and cheese omelet. Loved them both. Next time I will try the healthy tortilla which comes with egg, chaya (local spinach) carrots and spring onion for a change in pace.

Service was good, all waiters spoke English and Spanish, and the breakfast was great. We did linger, we won’t lie, and I am glad we did. It let us take in the glorious view of the Caribbean, the tropical garden beside us and chat with the waiters a little.

Location and Breakfast Hours for Sahara Café at Jashito Hotel

Jashito Hotel is located in Soliman Bay. Look for their sign on Highway 307 just south of Akumal and Xel Ha but north of Tulum. The hotel is the first building once you enter the gated community in Soliman Bay.

Breakfast is served from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. The price in April 2017 was 250 pesos per person (aprox 13 USD per person)
