"Have a smile with your coffee" it says on a wall hanging. Then when my coffee mocha arrived, the word "Smile" was written out across the foam. It was as delicious as beautiful and fun. Nice selection of fruit in the ensalada de frutas. On other visits I've enjoyed their many breakfast selections. Seating downstairs and on the rooftop make... More

Food, service, atmosphere and coffee are fantastic. This place really makes you feel special and the patrons show their loyalty by repeatedly returning. What more can I say?

I know this is a highly-rated restaurant but I can't figure out why that is. We sat upstairs for lunch. The service was okay given that most of the action was the main floor. My friend ordered a BLT and I ordered enchiladas verdes and coffee. The coffee was great but it is at so many other SMA restaurants. My... More

Have had many recommendations for this restaurant. We went this morning because we knew that Herbert is there on Saturday mornings from 9-11. Food lived up to recommendations and the latte was excellent. The music was the perfect compliment to the food. Herbert is 5* and so is Buen Dis

Buen Dia is a lovely cafe and specialty coffee shop located on a quiet street about a 10 minute walk from the centre of town. Their cappuccinos are excellent and the food is good too.

So happy to be able to visit this restaurant for the third year in a row. No one does coffee like Carlos!!! The breakfast is wonderful from the crisp bread to yummy bacon and all sorts of eggs. Today I tried chiquilles and it was delicious. Would love to take Carlos home with us-- better yet, we will return to... More

When we went there for lunch/brunch the place was full with North Americans. We sat upstairs in a place that was unfinished (think third world unfinished) but with paintings and photos on some of the ugly walls. The food was completely mediocre, except for the cappuccinos which were good. Nothing particularly positive to say about the service or anything else... More

I wasn't enamored with this place. The food was fine as was the coffee, but it's kind of an unfinished building. There seemed to be a lot of local people who must live in the neighborhood and who knew the staff. Nothing wrong with this place, it's just that there are so many amazing places to eat and have coffee... More
