Nice shady spot to sip coffee, people-watch and observe the fishing boats and all their activity. The coffee was okay for 25 pesos, but I like my brew a little stronger. Service was excellent and there's wifi. I was here once and loved the ambience of the marina and paseo, so for subsequent visits I bought a 16p dark roast at Oxxo across the street, then sat on a shady bench by the water's edge. Perfect!

What a discovery! Was looking for a Starbucks but found this charming little cafe instead. Terrific coffee served HOT! Rocking chairs on the porch. Right on the beach where the fishing boats come in to sell the day's catch. People passing by in endless variety. Friendly owners. Chocolate cake. Who needs Starbucks?

Great spot for a coffee, latte, cappuccino, tea, smoothie or a light snack.
Carrot cake, crepes, sandwiches with salads.
Fast and friendly service right on the waterfront.
Watch the fishermen bring in their boats or the constant flow of people walking by.
Decaf available if you are not a caffeine fan.
Great spot - I highly recommend it!

Every morning our group of six stumbles into town, finds our way to El Cafecito, and we enjoy freshly made espresso and Chai Tea drinks. Iced or warm they wake us up and help us get ready for another day! The lovely woman speaks very little English but it's not stopped us from ordering some complex drinks. While you wait, take in the fresh fish lined up next to the boats that brought them ashore. Overall, fresh espresso. Warm weather. What else could you want in the middle of winter?

Great spot for coffee and kalhúa on ice. You can take the boat taxi heading to playa Las Gatas nearby.
