or your choice of other fresh breads. Fresh juices and coffee and one of the best expressos around. Also a nice selection of cakes. The sándwiches, with very fresh deli meats or tuna salad are accompanied with several lively dressings. The location is the best right near the Los Muertos beach on Olas Altas at the foot of Basillo Badillo... More

A very small coffee/dessert shop that makes a really nice coffee. They have nice and tasty baked goods and do sandwiches and smoothies.

We live near this delightful corner cafe. It is our favorite evening stop for coffee and great cheesecakes. Also the apple pie is yummy. You can sit outside and people watch. Inside the chairs are comfy and handy restroom. The staff is welcoming and provides great service. Add this to your PV Romantic Zone spots to relax.

Though not as popular as some of the other coffeehouses in a three-block range, The Big Kahuna has moved to the top of my list for late-night coffee.

I stop by the Big Kahuna almost every late morning for a mocha frap to sip on while reading by the pool. Always friendly and affordable and simply delicious fraps!

I am not a coffee drinker, but I did watch my wife consume two or three cups of coffee each day for the 11 days we were in Puerto Vallarta. She claims this is the best coffee in Puerto Vallarta and maybe the world.
