We went twice before we discovered the restaurant was on the second floor! Limited menu but everything we had was delicious. The salads are a must. An additional plus was the advise on changing money at the supermarket instead of the bank for an additional 10% with no fees!

While in Huatulco we went back to Café Juanita for breakfast one morning, I forgot how large the servings are. We have eaten here many times as this was our fifth visit to Huatulco. The staff and the food are great. Jane has done a fantastic job "getting it right" We decided to take a cooking class with Jane and... More

This restaurant is a must for us when in Huatulco. Jane continues to provide excellent meals. We had both dinner and breakfast there and the food is fresh, very well prepared and Jane is such a delight. How she manages to be so involved in so many things is indeed impressive - a great restauranteur, a great community-minded individual who... More

This is a great restaurant for all meals (make sure to check when they are open for dinners). Jane the owner is wonderful and the food is delicious. They triple wash their vegetables and if you're craving a delicious salad this is where you can get it. In addition to eating breakfast, lunch and dinner there we also participated in... More

2nd floor restaurant in Santa Cruz bay. Owned by a Canadian expat. This 2nd floor place has about 6-8 tables overlooking Santa Cruz square. The owner also teaches cooking. Had breakfast which was good, but wished we had the chance to go back for dinner. Good sign is the place is popular with locals. While we only had one meal... More

We were very fortunate to have found this restaurant thru Tripadvisor during our one week holiday. Actually came back 2 more times for breakfast and dinner. Amazing food, welcoming and warm ambiance and a wonderful host ! Couldn't of had a better experience, especially when travelling with a toddler ;) Thanks Jane! Can't wait to come back here one day.

We had visited another restaurant in La Crucecita years ago run by the owner (Jane & her ex-husband) called "Hemingways" that we really enjoyed, so when we heard Jane owned & operated Café Juanita in the square of Santa Cruze, we were very motivated to drop in - and we weren't disappointed. Occupying the upper level above one of the... More
