Located just once block before Sayulita's main plaza, the Sayulita Cafe restaurant offers locals and visitors an incredible and authentic dining experience. A full bar with a plentiful wine list is available. Make sure to try one of the famous margaritas while you wait to be seated.

Amazing Cafe for breakfast

Amazing Cafe for breakfast - has covered outdoor seating and tables along the town square. We had the most attentive service - and English speaking servers.

The atmosphere of this restaurant is hopping! Street-side seating, along with comfy indoor seating. But the Chile Rellenos was the best!!!

We walked by this restaurant each night and it was crowded every time. We saved it for our last night and I wish we hadn't as I would have gone more than once. Chile Rellenos were awesome - Tortilla soup amazing - arranchera skirt steak fabulous - everything was fabulous. We will come back for sure.

My wife and I went to Sayulita cafe in 2004 and returned 11 years later. While the town is a bit bigger, Sayulita cafe remains a fantastic restaurant. One of my best food memories from 11 years ago was the Molcajete (stone lava bowl with beef/chicken/pork/etc in a delicious Mexican sauce). 11 years later it was better than I remember.... More

The first place we ever ate when we came to Sayulita four years ago. We've been back last year and this year. Dependably good food no matter what you order. Prices reasonable but not cheap Mexican street food prices.

The sign had us at the home of the chile rellenos, my go to Mexican dish. We plopped into an open table on the street and were quickly recognized, handed menus, and offered drinks. Immediately next to our spot was a single fellow enjoying a large bowl filled with the specialty of the house. He told us he'd been coming... More

I ordered the combination plate that had a bit of everything. Enjoyed it all! Yes it is a busy vibrant place write on the main road in the village. That does not detract from the quality or the food. Inside the restaurant it is warm so preferable to come a bit early to get a better location to eat.

The food was pretty good. We were seated at a small table on the sidewalk, it's a busy area, with no breeze, it was less than comfortable.

We were literally forced to relax and chill out. My husband had been by the day before and asked when the restaurant opened for breakfast, "8:30 AM, maybe 9 AM." We were there at 9 AM the next morning. We sat at an outdoor table while staff setup tables, umbrellas, signage for the day. My husband had the Omelet Azteca... More

We came back twice to this restaurant during our stay in Sayulita. Best chile relleno I have ever had! The fajitas were also amazing and the price was very moderate. Definitely eat here if you are in the town.
