Good coffee shop

They have great coffee and all sorts of cakes, muffins, bagels etc. I relay like their lattes but the iced coffees are great as well.

I am not a coffee drinker, but I did watch my wife consume two or three cups of coffee each day for the 11 days we were in Puerto Vallarta. She claims this is the best coffee in Puerto Vallarta and maybe the world.

I am a professed coffee snob. This place serves a nice cup. They have AC too if that is important to you. Also - nice mini cinnamon buns. Very friendly owner who won my heart by being the ONLY place still open as Hurricane Patricia was bearing down and ALL local shops were boarded up in preparation. He was sweet... More

At 50 pesos per piece, their cheesecakes and cakes are horrendous! So much so, we threw out all four pieces we bought for our dinner guests as they were really of poor quality. Don't make the same mistake of buying more than one if you really want to have a taste of these lousy cakes. Would not recommend.

We stopped here and grabbed a few slices of cheesecake and having been enjoying a few tasty bites each evening. My favorite is the chocolate/caramel which was very good and a quite sizable portion for about $4.50 US. The original piece that we bought with strawberries and strawberry preserve was not as tasty and tasted like a preservative. So, stick... More

The service was average. Employees were not friendly. Coffee was good and they do have some food items.

Being Australian, we are self confessed coffee snobs. One of the biggest dilemmas of our holidays is always where to get a good coffee. Well this place is pretty much coffee nirvana! We tried all the cafes in Puerto Vallarta and this place is the best for coffee to go. Good flavoursome espresso and very good cafe latte's. They serve... More
