The atmosphere is friendly, inviting and relaxed. First and third Sat. of the month the cafe hosts an Organic Market--this is not to be missed, locals bring... More

Owned and managed by Salvador López, his wife Judith Juárez and their daughter Arima, this little café is well shaded by lovely tropical trees and surrounded by the picturesque buildings of one of the cleanest,...

The family owns a coffee plantation so the coffee you get is of supreme quality and grown locally. The setting of the outdoor restaurant is placed in the middle of a square with parrots serenading you (netting to protect any... More

The outside seating has shade, bird sounds, cafe music and local vibe is all around you, but it was not too busy. More people there in the... More

Best coffee in Huatulco;! Best stop (along with the church) at Santa Cruz on a warm afternoon or evening. Wonderful ambiance in the old bandstand. Very civilized; open til midnight. Cafe frio is perfect too. Also selling their beans, Mexican chocolate and Mexican honey. With their coffee beans at 230 pesos for 2 kg (+-$7CAD/lb), the value is exceptional; less... More
