I like stopping here for coffee during the day. Occasionally for a small meal. Tables on the sidewalk and street can be kind of busy. Good value.

Simple, chic and tasty. We ate here several times the week we stayed in San Pancho (we normally go up every new years). Coffee is GREAT. Pasta was amazing. The Salanova Pizza is great. You can't pass up on the mahi. And i hope you like potatoes, onions or garlic. Great fusion of food here!

Umberto the chef/baker/owner and his wife Cecelia are warm and gracious hosts and serve up super fresh and tasty dishes. Must say that nothing can compare to his freshly baked bread in a real pizza oven. I even took a loaf home to PV but didn't make it past Sayulita before breaking into it. Before leaving, we were able to... More

On a short trip from Sayulita to explore San Francisco (San Pancho) we came across Cafe Arte. Excellent live music, great service from the owner Cecilia, and a magical evening meeting people and just relaxing! Couldn't recommend it more. In fact headed back to San Pancho and expect to eat there one last time.

What a great find. Great food and drinks. And we wish we'd been able to take in a film! A wonderful escape from typical touristy places

Unfortunately we did no get to try the food. We stopped her for drinks and music on our last night in San Francisco (San Pancho). Very friendly owners and good location. The food being served looked really nice and people seemed happy. Next time in San Pancho we will for sure eat here. Cheers and happy eats!

We have been going to San Pancho for several years and have seen this restaurant before but never stopped to try the food. We quickly changed our minds when we decided to stop and have a meal after watching the sun set on the beach. I now wonder why it took us so long to try Cafe Arte. The food... More
