Located on the corner of the crossroads of Avenida Hidalgo opposite Stingray, on the street that leads up to the beach and Ixchel Condos in downtown Isla Mujeres, you will find a little red building... a cute family run restaurant, with incredible food and amazing prices.

La Cueva de la Cherna is a lesser-known breakfast and lunch spot on Isla Mujeres, but a popular option with those that know of it and return time after time. With large portions and cheaper prices available, they are open from 10 AM – 5 PM. They have a large menu of some great Mexican breakfasts of chilaquiles, huevos rancheros (ranch eggs), or any styles of eggs that you choose, they also have hot cakes, fruit plates and more. For lunch or for a snack, they offer up some delicious options including kekas or quesadillas as they are more commonly known, enchiladas, tacos, tortas, nachos and burritos, chicken in mole, fish and ceviche... to name just a few of the options available. There are also some delicious vegetarian options available.

This is a small spot, and they do have limited seating, but it is worth the wait if it is busy. You can choose to sit inside, where it can get a little hot as they are cooking directly in front of you, or you can sit on the street outside. They will also give you your food to go.
