Fans to cool off with in the morning heat and the staff is friendly and brings your beverages out to you once you...order. Did I mention the delicious mini banana bread?

Don’t get me wrong I love Starbucks but I can get that at home so I’m here might as well indulge. Had the brownie as always hit the spot for a sweet tooth craving. And iced coffee plain and mocha both were very good. I...wish they would open shop in the US.More

When we are in Playa, you can usually find us at Ah Cacao. The desserts and drinks are delightfully delicious, but it’s the staff and service that keeps us coming back night after night.
