Description
Cafe del Sol Botanico When the seed of Cafe del Sol was planted many years ago, we nourished, nurtured and tended it with love and pride. As Cafe del Sol grew and blossomed, we, and our guests, grew with it. From the fruit of Cafe del Sol, a new seed took root - Cafe del Sol Botanico. Here, surrounded by the vivid colours and secret language of plants, we celebrate that great healer and teacher - Nature. Here, we celebrate the delightful blend of fine food and fine company. Here, we welcome you and yours - for you are ours too.
