“Great coffee shop-tour too long”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2012

Located on the main street at the driveway entrance to Nanny Estates it was very easy to spot. We had rented a house on the beach and were a 1/2hr drive into town, but when we did come in for sightseeing etc we made sure this was one of our stops. We had Cappuccinos that were smooth and not bitter like some I've had elsewhere, fruit shakes that are yummy, and bagels that were soft & tasted extremely fresh with a flavour I couldn't quite pin point. I became addicted to these and had to have them whenever we stopped in. We also did the Cacao Tour and found it informative, but at least 2hrs too long and more of a family visit for our tour guide Freddy who takes you to his family's farm (we were the only 2 out that day and it might have been different if we had others to chat with as the majority of the visit was watching our guide converse with his family in Spanish while we sat there feeling uncomfortable & wishing we could leave). The first part was interesting with Freddy pointing out various trees/fruit, then there was at least an hour before we had lunch (we sat and watched/listened to the family converse & our guide ignored us). After lunch we sat around another 1/2 hour, then were taken to the back of another house where we were shown the cacao process while our guide explained what they were doing. We then waited while our guide went into the house for about 1/2hr as we stood around outside wishing we would just leave. Finally we did! Yayyyyyy. Cute kids, lots of farm animals, interesting tour (when we were actually shown stuff so the high stars are for the coffee shop and the tour is 2-3*).

“Best waffles around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

Cabarete Coffee Company is a great place to grab a meal before a long day on the water. I'm partial to the fluffy waffles topped with fresh tropical fruit and whipped cream. The coffee is strong and fresh, and the the staff friendly and smiling. Really convenient location to grab some morning kick if your heading out to encuentro, or on your way back with an appetite. Plus they support local growers, and are environmentally friendly.

“A touch of home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

The Cabarete Coffee Company is super convenient if you are staying at the Nanny Estates or other places at the west end of the village. There are both indoor and outdoor tables however seating is limited.
The food appears to be very well prepared in terms of cleanliness. There are several breakfast and lunch choices and nothing would disappoint. We had great fun trying local restaurant food but sometimes you want something that is familiar to you like eggs, bacon and cheese on a bagel.
There is usually someone around who speaks English and well,
We sat outdoors on most visits as there is a small farm across the road and it is fun to watch the comings and goings from there. We concluded that they are in the business of coconuts in addition to having sheep,chickens and roosters.
This cafe is highly involved in Mariposa, an organization that tries to help young women find employment or develop skills so that they can supports them. They sell local coffee, cocoa and give a portion of their intake to fund Mariposa.
The staff are accommodating and while laid back we never had trouble with lengthy waits for our orders.

“We like it-and didn't even have coffee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

They are known for their coffee, but we brought home several pre-packaged bags for our friends. We really enjoyed egg and cheese sandwiches on bagels, as well as lox and cream cheese on a bagel. No coffee, but fantastic fruit smoothies and chai tea. In a town full of reasonably priced meals, this was a great value. Also, very appreciative when they received a tip!
