During our 3 week stay in Mazatlan we would visit Rico's almost daily. We tried a variety of their breakfast and was never disappointed. The freashest and tasty Coffee drinks and Frappachino's. The most amazing is their desserts. Would recommend going to Rico's during your visit in Mastalan

Went to Rico's at the Marina location for coffee and a treat after the movies, with visiting friends. Refreshments were great, as usual. We were well taken care of by Martin .... "the greatest waiter in the world". He was very attentive and entertaining. We will remember him as a great example of Mazatlan enthusiasm and hospitality.

Walking by I saw the sign and immediately had to try a cup of their coffee. As we walked in the first thing we noticed was it was grinding and roasting day for some coffee beans! What a fine smell!,a little warm as they were roasting beans,but we sat outside and enjoying people watching. The best Cappuccino we have had... More

Wonderful food, great value and the free wifi is delightful bonus. My husband also discovered your location inside El Cid Moro Beach, and he ended up visiting it every morning for amazing Americano to start his day

Wow..Just great place to have a coffee, check email, FaceTime home, and relax either inside or out on patio. Next time I am going to get some of their pastries..Look delicious. A block from hotel El Cid Castilla Beach...Where they have a smaller Rico's inside between the El Moro and El Cid...Free WiFi also.

Coffee is very good here, and the location is excellent for the Gold Zone. The service is very friendly and knowledgeable about coffee. The improvement we noticed over years past is that the dessert "goodies" are much better - fresher and more varied. Some of the coffee drinkers do like to smoke, so choose your seating spot carefully.

I was staying across the street and daily went to Rico's for my latte fix. While they offer various food options from pastries to sandwiches, there are plenty of other places to eat. The expresso offerings are similar to the states, although i had to have them decrease the sweetener level. Great spot in the zona.

Lots of coffee choices but breakfast we ho hum. I had waffles and they were heavy vs light and fluffy. My wife had Mexican eggs and bacon and it too was less than average. Location is convenient, but you must watch your step as there are several floor levels, some only 3-4 inches variance in height.

We satisfied our latte yearnings more than once. Available to go, but stay and enjoy the ambience and the ceramic mugs delivered with artistic designs in the perfectly foamed steam milk.

Rico's Cafe opened in 2000 as Mazatlan´s only cafe. Our simple desire was to inspire customers by offering an inviting place to enjoy Mexico's best coffees prepared by our expert baristas. Today we enjoy a loyal following of locals as well as tourists who seek out our homemade breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and specialty crepes. We also offer freshly-baked breads and pastries, frappes and imported teas, in addition to our coffees which we roast on the premises. Rico's terraces are a great place for groups to gather, our booths are ideal for private conversations and our long tables in front of the main bar are great for people watching and meeting others. Free high-speed Internet, music and personalized service make this a second home for many customers. You will leave inspired, and say "Que rico!"
