We stayed at the hostel connected to this cafe and were satisfied every time. Very friendly and very helpful to our questions regarding the island. Very wholesome food and very reasonable prices, which was a relief as the island is not very cheap as a whole. They filter their water which is very convenient and environmentally friendly.

This cafe is THE place to go to on San Cristobal island. The homemade vegetarian/vegan breakfasts and lunchtime specials are so fresh and made with such great ingredients it is impossible to leave without ordering slices of Hosanna's (one of the owners) cakes or pies too. It's nested in a perfect spot to watch the peaceful comings and goings of the fishing pier, and the occasional waddling sea lion. The staff are really welcoming and a font of knowledge about island life. Go grab a coffee, fresh juice and any of their amazing dishes here..you will love it! Ps.Top tips: carrot cake/ chocolate and beetroot cake, passion fruit cheesecake...veggie lasagne/felafels...different choices everyday..all scrumptious.

Was told by a coffee expert that Fresco has the best coffee in San Cristobal. Coffee is certainly very good and so is the cake. Great atmosphere and location by the sea. Strongly recommended.

This place is a tad more expensive than the shops serving $4 Almuerzos in town, but the food is high quality and the staff is nice. The sourdough bread is also some of the best I've ever had. It's one of the only places on the island to get espresso.

They have a great quality of banana smoothie. I tried twice in different days and both were great. But there was a bit difference probably caused by the freshness of banana.
