We loved this place so much we came back every day for 6 days and bought more coffee to take home. The coffee is amazing. The staff are so lovely. The location is good, you can sit outside and have a glimpse of the water and cruise ships. Could not recommend enough!

I was here for breakfast and I got to enjoy the waterfront view while sipping my coffee. The service was great, coffee was awesome, and pastries was delicious. A great place to start your day.

Coffee; service; ambience were exceptional! A morning must for a good start of the day. For an unbelievable cup of java, you have to visit Cafe Cola'o.

This was my second annual trip to Cafe Colao! I love there coffee. My favorite is their house blend. I also buy plenty of the shortbread cookies to go. They are some of the best I've had. They sell them in bags by a brand named Cecillas.

Stopped by this lovely little spot for an espresso and it was perfect. Don't go to Starbucks, this is much, much better and you can sit outside and get a view of the water.

The ambiance of the cafe is lovely. It's quaint with fresh flowers at each table. Prices are low. Best coffee I have ever tasted. Smooth espresso flavor. I highly recommend the macchiato.
