We satisfied our latte yearnings more than once. Available to go, but stay and enjoy the ambience and the ceramic mugs delivered with artistic designs in the perfectly foamed steam milk.

There were four of us for a late breakfast at Rico's today. I had huevos florentinos, their variation on eggs benedict. It was excellent! Just as wonderful was the Mexican mocha coffee both my wife and I enjoyed. Everyone loved their meal an our waiter was hilarious. We sat in a lovely outdoor setting (don't face the gas station outside... More

Stayed at the nearby El Cid resort. They only serve coffee with meals. No place on the resort to get a coffee any other time. Great coffee and good service. Lots of variety and selection.

We have been here twice for lunch and the food has been very good, although the server we had the last time we were here was not the best server. It seemed as if he was easily distracted and forgetful and when a larger Mexican family came in that everyone seemed to know, they received all the attention and we... More

Rico's is a great little place to have coffee & breakfast or lunch. We stop by when we are out walking in the area. Nice place to sip a coffee & watch the world go by.

Just because it is nearly attached to a gas station, don't let that make you think it is not a good place for coffee. The food is also excellent and at a decent price. Second best coffee in Mazatlán without a doubt.

Excellent service. Great coffee. Delicious food. Conveniently located with shaded tables to keep you cool when enjoying your coffee. I think we're addicted to their decaf lattes and espresso macchiatos.

Thank Cinnamonheart

Rico's Cafe opened in 2000 as Mazatlan´s only cafe. Our simple desire was to inspire customers by offering an inviting place to enjoy Mexico's best coffees prepared by our expert baristas. Today we enjoy a loyal following of locals as well as tourists who seek out our homemade breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and specialty crepes. We also offer freshly-baked breads and pastries, frappes and imported teas, in addition to our coffees which we roast on the premises. Rico's terraces are a great place for groups to gather, our booths are ideal for private conversations and our long tables in front of the main bar are great for people watching and meeting others. Free high-speed Internet, music and personalized service make this a second home for many customers. You will leave inspired, and say "Que rico!"
