If you are hungry, this is the place to go! Food is fantastic and you get more than your money's worth - portions are very big. In fact, most of the time my wife and I would share our breakfast and we would leave "stuffed".

Every morning, we dropped in to grab a freshly made fruit salad and cappuccinos, that we took out to savor at Carizalillo beach. The cappuccinos, pastries, fruits, juices, soups were always delicious. The service was great and the staff very courteous. A must!

Good local food, open air dining. It would be helpful if our Spanish was better, but we had a good meal and drinks for not much money.

Our group ate most of our breakfasts and dinners at C+El Cafecito during the week we were in Puerto Escondido. The food was consistently good with generous portions. They also have a carry out bakery attached.

Free coffee refill, lots of servers, but where is the coffee pot? Gets boring after a few days. However, breakfast and prices are honest, servers nice. We gave it a try for supper, my fish was overcooked and lukewarm, cold veggies, and my boyfriend was...More
