Nice porch seating, good crepes, juices and espresso. Service/ambiance very pleasant. Doesn't open 'til ?9ish so no good for early-birds!

Lovely ladies, great coffee, great chill-out music and a beautiful dog called Azul. We went a few times as it was just around the corner from Hotel La Palapa where we were staying. It´s nice and peaceful to sit after lunch or maybe just have cake and coffee.

Cafecito was great. We both had focaccia sandwiches which were very good. One sandwich would fill you up nicely. The coffee was good and the jungle atmosphere on the porch was great. We sat under the awning and watched the rain fall which was very relaxing.
