Good place to eat, fish was great. Breakfast is good, and the morning waitresses are smiling and fun.

A most pleasant spot for morning coffee. They open at 0730 punctually, a plus for Type A gringos. The baristas/waitresses are charming and attentive. The coffee con leche is as good as it gets. I admittedly spend an inordinate length of time here.

We walk into town every afternoon for their coffee. The Caramel Frappuccino and Iced Latte are amazing. It's a great way to cool off after a long day in the sun and 70% humidity. It's a little over a mile from our hotel and it is hot outside but totally worth it.
