Very disappointed after reading the excellent reviews. The Passion Fruit juice was definitely not natural and the sandwich was pretty bad. The service was good though.

Quaint little cafe in a beautiful garden setting just off the main street of Cabarete, on the east side of town. They have a great menu with lots of healthy options for breakfast and lunch and the best carrot cake and iced coffee I think I have ever had! The location is practically beside Janet's so if you are out... More

This little cafe is a bit hidden but well known so easy to locate. Has amazing coffee and awesome food.. Breakfast is what it's known for and it does not disappoint. The only down fall is its size. However if you don't mind waiting for a table or sharing a big one your good. However worth the wait if you... More

From reading reviews on TripAdvisor, I had to find Café Claro on our recent vacation to Cabarete. If is just off the beaten path, the only sign is the folding sign out on the sidewalk when they are open ( 8a-2p ). Our 1st day we looked in the afternoon ( they were closed ) and missed it. The breakfast... More

I've been staying in a near by condo to this cafe and it is amazing. I've gone practically every morning. Everything I have tried off of the menu has been very fresh. The service is great, they are so helpful and friendly! Definitely check it out!

Love the breakfast here. The best and friendliest service. I love the fresh fruit and good coffee every morning. I steal one of my husbands pancakes for the perfect pre surf breakfast. Haven't tried the lunch yet but will!

We went there for this first time this past trip as we were advised by a friend it was wonderful and she was right. We have had a home in Cabarete for 15 years and have never been here as it's tucked away and a little hard to find but it's just past Janets Supermarket tucked away in a little... More
