We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast here. Bottomless coffee was a nice touch, especially since it isn't standard in the DR and the coffee was great.

Cafe Claro has great energy and everyone is so nice. It's very popular with hotel guests and ex pats. We decided to pop in for breakfast and it was just ok. Based on the reviews I was expecting something better but maybe I didn't order the right thing. Everyone raved about the smoothies but there wasn't much to mine.

If you want to eat like eg: breakfast, try them and you will be surprised. They do not really serve typical breakfast menu's but most things are just...different and tasty. Wanna be in for a tasty surprise, just go and visit them

Great smoothies, one of the first places my husband and I ate. Great prices and fresh food! Also the waiter was really nice, and gave us great tips for renting surf boards.

The title says it all, their breakfast (and lunches) are excellent. Service is slow, they want you to relax and enjoy your meals. Sometimes, I find it too slow, but the food makes the wait worthwhile. Portions are generous, the bottomless coffee is good, the location is very attractive, and Sandy and her staff are welcoming. Don't miss this one.

I will say right off that I live in this neighborhood so I eat here often, so I can say with conviction that the food quality is excellent and consistent. I know that the owner scours several sources to get the best quality ingredients ,and they will make every effort to accommodate your special requests. An unsual occurrence in Cabarete.... More

In a beautiful garden setting, the meals are healthy and delicious. The eggs and homemade treats are fresh and excellently prepared. The owner Sandy and her lovely family are there to ensure each meal is delightful. When you didn't there you almost feel like one of the family. They use only the freshest vegetables and fruits in all of their... More

One of the few places offering vegetarian options, this is a really nice option to get away from the beach. The location is a little hidden, but well worth finding it b/c the food is great!

I love the gardens at Claro and enjoy watching the hummingbirds while enjoying awesome healthy food! I particularly enjoy the Cabarete spinning breakfast which includes eggs, toast with peanut butter and homemade jam. Also includes fresh fruit, homemade granola and yogurt! Delicious! If you want great homemade food this is the place for you!
