Great coffee, food, and service. The owner is bilingual. She is friendly and accepting. Also had an amazing "green juice" with great fresh fruits and vegetables.

This progressively decorated and clean Cafe is a great place to relax, have breakfast or lunch, and go Online. The Staff are well versed in both English and Spanish! My Vegetable Omelet was quite delicious and well-prepared.

I love Amarantha and Conny who always welcome me with a big smile and a hug. The other patrons are a wonderful cross-section of Puerto Vallarta life. We frequently get lunch there and are always happy---in body and spirit! They have lots of used books and a zillion games (including Quiddler) so it's easy to have a delicious coffee and... More
