We were looking for a different place for breakfast and found many places closed while we were there. We happened upon this restaurant one morning. The food was only average. Hubby had a bloody mary; but it was no more than average. There was a no-smoking sign; but a young woman came in and was allowed to smoke - make... More

Great food. Great coffee. A real lifesaver for coffee snobs like us! It's been our morning stop on both of our Isla trips. My son is a mango smoothie snob and says theirs is the best on the island.

"Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony" is written on the wall of this charming corner café. The waiter is friendly. We order a "light omelette" and breakfast Burrito. Coffee (according to themselves the best on the island) is good, but the best?? We do not know -yet-. The food is... More

Staying at Hotel Posada del Mar, we discovered this place a short walk away on Juarez Avenue. We were looking for a great cup of morning coffee, and found it here!! Both regular cafe and lattes as well. Breakfast was always delicious and the menu had a lot of options. Ended up eating here the four mornings we were staying... More

Our experience here was mixed. While the grilled sea bass I ordered was very good my wife's dish was decidedly not. She ordered what was essentially a shish kabob with grilled shrimp. After one bite she said the shrimp tasted "funny". I had a bite and agreed that the shrimp were off. Serving spoiled seafood is never a good thing... More

I was dying for a good cup of coffee and this place delivered! It has great atmosphere too. Fun place to relax and people watch or read or talk:). My husband and I went for breakfast before going scuba diving. I got a breakfast burrito that was good, but huge. My husband had a traditional huevos rancheros and liked his... More

Best coffee I've had so far! Had breakfast and everything was delish. I had bacon and spinach omelet which was best with salsa - which doesn't look anything like our salsa in the states so wondering if he thought I said sauce. Who cares- it was delicious! Son had meat lovers omelet and loved the extra cheese they added. We... More

love Cafe Mogagua! Excellent atmosphere and nice place to relax. Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner! The staff are friendly, warm and welcoming. One of the best places on the island. And, truly, the best coffee!

If you like coffee, this is the place to go. The food was not better than other places, but the coffee was amazing.
