Looking for nice and healthy breakfast? Give Claro a try! I enjoyed their smoothies but the food is also great and they offer dishes which were a nice variety to the everyday stuff you get almost everywhere. We felt very welcomed by the friendly staff. I can totally recommend this place.

It took us a while before we found this little cute place but from that moment we just loved it and spent a lot of time there. You can find a lot of vegan and vegetarian food here which is just delicious. Also try the Chia-Smoothie and the green one - I can absolutely recommend those! Oh I miss Café... More

Tranquil place to eat lunch, next to the Hotel Casa Blanca, very close to Janet Supermarket. They are open Tuesday through Sunday, 8 am - 2 pm. Menu items from smoothies and breakfast combos to hummus and grilled vegetable wraps. Very tasty food and pleasant and fast service.

The menu is wonderful, so many choices. It is hard to pick my favourite - frittata, banana bread french toast or honey bacon veggie wrap. Friendly and happy staff and exceptional service. Bottomless coffee cup. Eco friendly water. A great post to meet old friends and new friends, too,

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. The service is warm & friendly. You feel you are eating at a friend's home. I ate here everyday for breakfast & one day... More

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. The eggs were cooked to perfection, potatoes so yummy and bowl of fruit... More
