We had cappuccino every day at 7 am as well as a Mexican mocha for Mom. After a day they remembered our name. We also brought bags of coffee home for gifts. They roast daily in the shop it looks like. And with pesos a little better value a large cappuccino was only 44 pesos ($2.20).

Great location, coffee and warm service. Being from Seattle area, coffee (lattes) are important. This shop is special.

Went in a few times on our trip to the Golden Zone location. Cajeta Frappes are worth the trip on their own! Employees were nice and friendly each time we went in. Had breakfast one of the mornings and had the best chilaquiles Verdes I've ever eaten! Definitely worth the stop in!

We travel to Mazatlan twice a year and Rico's is our favorite coffee shop and restaurant. The staff is efficient, friendly and very polite. We start our day at 7am with a cup of coffee and often a breakfast. There food is excellent and the setting is so restful. You'll miss a great experience is you miss Rico's.

Stopped in during a recent trip to Mazatlan and was so impressed by all of the team! Truly seemed to enjoy their work and Charlie drew some great foam pictures on my cappucino, specifically for Halloween. Great coffee, roasted inhouse. Everything that you want for a nice place to get a great cup of coffee!

Best cafe in Mazatlan! Marco - the waiter treated us like royalty. One day we accidental left 500 pesos instead of 50. He chased us down to return our money. What an honest and great person! Excellent food/coffee , location and the BEST food.

Walked across the street from the Inn at Mazatlán and fell into a warm and very friendly experience. The fresh coffee grounds and the smiling barista were a welcome smell and site. We ended up going here five times during our week stay Strongly recommend this shop to start your morning.

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!"
