Our first time here. Absolutely delicious breakfast. Many options and they also offer a kids menu which many others do not. The juices/coffee were incredibly fresh and came with the meal. We would return without hesitation.

My friend was suffering from diabetic shock shortly after we arrived at Vagabunda. The friendly staff snapped into action immediately and mixed a salty/sweet concoction to help out. We ended up taking him to the hospital, but their quick, calm action was much appreciated! The food was amazing, and they make the best Michelada beer mix in Playa!

We had dinner at Vagabunda and ordered two bowls of soup. What was served surprised our eyes and tastebuds: large bowls of excellent tortilla soup. We had the lime and the creamy - both were excellent. So filling that we asked the waiter to box up the garlic fish entree for tomorrow's lunch.

I had breakfast here for 5 days. The best fruit platter ever. They add some granola and yoghurt on the side.

I enjoyed a large breakfast in Vagabunda's outdoor patio. Service was prompt and food tasty. Orange juice was freshly squeezed, coffee served with cream, and meal was served in a timely manner. There's nothing fancy here, just good ole-fashion breakfast food for those looking for a filling meal.
