If you are like me and love eating out during the day, not just for dinner then this blog is for you! When I am travelling, I become a seriously healthy eater, I think it’s the weather? Whatever it is I love it and I just want to know where to go at the drop of a hat. Scrolling through Google, reading airy fairy reviews is just not for me. So don’t worry, I tried out the best eating spots in Tulum and have put them all in one place for you, say ADIOS to Google and enjoy this 3 minute read. Tulum not only has 10/10 food, but the aesthetics in all of these eateries are also 10/10.
Café Punta del Ceilo
This is a great breakfast and brunch spot for everyone, whether you are into acai bowls or would prefer an English Breakfast to cure a hangover. It is either a place to come with friends to socialise and eat really good food or to just zone out on your own. I would not recommend it if you are a digital nomad looking to do work on your laptop as the vibe is very buzzy and it would be difficult to concentrate.

Eat at Liefs
Eat at Liefs is a vegan café that is based out of a Volkswagen campervan. I am not vegan but the food here is so delicious this is probably my favourite lunch spot in Tulum. It is located on the road connecting the town and the beach. They do delicious, iced tea which is the perfect refreshment if you are cycling. The vegan crepes are out of this world, you must try them. There are tables in the sun and the shade so whatever takes your fancy on that day.

Raw Love Tulum
Raw Love is another vegan spot that will make you want to turn Vegan. There are two locations in Tulum, one in the main town and one by the beach. The beach branch has such an amazing vibe with hammocks and dream catchers dotted around everywhere. You cannot miss the location of Raw Love on the beach road as it is based by the huge sculpture that is probably the most Instragrammable spot in Tulum. I got the vegan pizza here, I had no idea what to expect but it tasted out of this world.

The Pitted Date Vegan Restaurant
This is a great place vegan spot based in Aldea Zama. If you are cycling from the town to the beach this is a good halfway spot. Or if you live in Aldea Zama then this could be your new go to brunch spot! The café is mainly based outside and it has a very sociable feel, a lot of people were talking between tables. Aldea Zama is a lot more peaceful than the town so it is a nice escape from the hustle and bustle. If you are vegan or just looking for a healthy café, The Pitted Date Vegan Restaurant is the place to go!

Co.Con Amor is set in the main town of Tulum and is solely a vegan restaurant. It is all set outside and everything they do is eco-friendly. It is definitely more of a lunch spot than a dinner spot as they stop serving at 9PM and the vibe is busier in the day. There is free Wi-Fi here and it is definitely a place where you can get your laptop out and do some work.

Meteora Coffeehouse Tulum
Meteora does the best salads and smoothies ever, it has a Starbucks feel with exceptional table service. They have extremely strong Wi-Fi, making it the the perfect spot for digital nomads. To top it all off, they have a pool that you can have a dip in after your food. It is located on the way from the town to the beach zone.

If you are looking for the best acai bowl in town Matcha Mama is the place to go. There are two locations, one in Aldea Zama and one on the ‘beach road’ in Tulum. If you are staying at the Selina where the breakfast, if you are part of the hostel, is average, definitely walk up the ‘beach road’ to visit Matcha Mama, you won’t regret it. This is also one of the most Instagrammable spots in Tulum so it’s a win-win.

Maka Hotel Boutique
A great place to get an acai bowl in Downtown Tulum is at Maka. Not many people know that Maka is open for everyone to enjoy their delicious food unless you have stayed here. They do a whole array of lunch food, but their acai bowls are sensational. You can then chill by the pool and indulge.
