Best coffee around.

Cafe con Leche is our goto spot when we visit St George Island / Apalachicola. The hosts are phenomenal - you know when the locals spend their time here that it is the ideal spot.

The beauty of Cafe con Lexhe is that you can have your wonderful cafe con Leche and still be able to eat a hot breakfast which you have not eaten North of the Mexican border. While the food is typically Venezuelan it has strong relations to Cuba, Colombia and Mexico. Your mouth will tingle first thing in the morning. Fresh... More

I can't say enough great things about Cafe con Leche. Start your breakfast with a Cafe con Leche then order the croissant sandwich and prepare to be YUMMED. Or, maybe you prefer the breakfast burrito - just as delish! Don't expect to rush in and out though - everything is hand made to order in the tiniest kitchen you have... More

We stopped by here while in town one morning and the latte we got was really fine. They make each one by hand and it was delicious

We visited this place many times in the morning for coffee and a small breakfast. Great coffee, friendly service and great food. Small and old and comfortable.

The breakfast sandwiches (arepas) are good and coffee is very good also. They charge $3.50 for their signature coffee/latte, the Cafe con Leche, which is very good but not huge, and the same for refills. Refills of regular coffee are $1.00. We found that everyone was courteous and no issues with service being quirky or bad, just that you often... More

After walking out of this place last year when I tried to get a cup of coffee and couldn't get waited on, we,went with friends for breakfast. It was actually very good. I had the breakfast burrito, my husband had the arepas, and our friends had the breakfast croissant. The latte was great, and I was very happy with our... More

Their coffee was good, but I'm not a big coffee drinker. My husband loved it tho! And the orange pound cake was excellent! They have outdoor dining (if you have your dogs!) and service. They do close at 3 most days, so plan your day to make it there in time!

Little place with only a couple of tables, but very reasonably priced. Breakfast "arepas" --like mini breakfast burritos only with fresh Puerto Rican breads--like a pita almost. Food was good. Coffee on tap but if you want tea, might have to wait a few minutes. Service....well....quirky. Kinda like lost flower children in there. Don't go if you're in a hurry,... More

I wandered in for a latte and chose the Cafe con Leche, which was wonderful! They will make it with or without sweetened condensed milk. Tons of rich flavor......this is not a boring Starbucks latte. They had a nice selection of pastries and desserts (homemade blueberry muffins, pound cake, snicker doodles....). They also had some nice looking sandwiches, but I... More
