Fantastic little outdoor cafe just a couple of blocks away from the main drag of Tulum. We had three different types of paninis, a large salad, and fruit infused water. All delicious! Their outdoor seating is intimate, shaded and comfortable. If you're looking for a break from Mexican food, this is the place.

We came here looking for some salads and we were not disappointed. We had some some of their flavoured waters, two beautiful salads and lovely desserts. Come and enjoy this place too.

After a week of tacos and seafood, we stopped here for roast beef and turkey panini's and they ended up being one of my two favorite meals of the entire trip to Mexico. The staff was great, very committed to making a sandwich you will like. The iced coffee was on point and the location was adorable. We will absolutely... More

But then i see this small shop a little bit hidden, two streets down from the freeway. I was amazed by the variety of sandwiches/paninis and all of them... More

El Gourmet Tulum is a store specialised in customising the best panini and salad ever. We also have a wide variety of cold meats & imported cheese such as speck, bresaola, prosciutto, gorgonzola, fontina, emmental, parmigiano, among others. All our bread is daily baked to be used in our sándwiches and salads or to be sold on its own. Desserts are to be tried for sure!. Really good coffee, and the freshest juices and fruit water are prepared as soon as it is ordered! The freshness and love that are used in the production is what differenciates El Gourmet from other places! Come to visit us! You will feel at home!
