This little cafe is difficult to find but worth the effort. We ate there several times during our vacation and each time made us yearn to go back. The owner is sweet and is English speaking and always helpful re local info. Love the oatmeal, fruit salads, dinner salads (especially the protein salad) and burgers. This is THE place to... More

They have the best breakfast, especially their pancakes! We also had lunch at Cafe Claro, and the burgers and hummus were quite delish!

I had the pleasure of staying a few doors down from here. To say it was great is an understatement. Everything about it is great. The menu is unique and they use only the freshest ingredients.

Sandy, the owner, is super sweet and the food reflects the love put in it! We had a delicious fresh juice smoothie with Chia. WOW. Also had the delicious oatmeal, a tropical fruit salad and an insane Green Goddess omelette. Everyone is super friendly and the food is fairly priced. Will definitely be back!

After church we went to Cafe Claro for brunch. It is near Janet's grocery store and is tucked away so watch for the sign! Service was excellent, we had Francina as a waitress and her English is very good if you are having trouble with your Spanish.

This small and quiet place has really sweet staff and they make the best passion fruit juice :) It's an excellent place to start the day in a great way with one of their great selections of breakfasts along with really good coffee! We went here several times during our holiday in Cabarete.

This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Sometimes it's good, sometime's is really bad, depending on who's cooking. Haven't been for awhile as the last two times I was there they seemed to have forgotten how to make bacon and eggs. Will try it again though as I like the setting and the owner if she's around is very... More
