It's walking distance for us so we've been a few times. Predominately for the tourist trade and the occasional local. The food is edible but nothing to write home to mom about and the pricing reflects it. We do like their croissants and will always take a few w/us when leaving. Cabarete as a whole doesn't really have a decent... More

We went for breakfast and the food was very good. It is a street cafe on the main road with a very casual atmosphere. Very good service.

Came here twice on our vacation. Once for lunch, the chicken Caesar wraps are delicious; and second time for breakfast, the breakfast burrito was great too!
