What a jewel of a cafe! While vacationing in Punra Mita, my husband and I were desperately searching for something vastly different from the monotony of our resort's food offerings. How lucky were we to happily stumble upon the beautiful Naef. We enjoyed a lovely...More

Once you find it the first time you will go back. Beautifully presented breakfast. We had French toast with pecans and delicious syrup. The owners and wait staff are friendly and it's easy to chat with other diners. Charming tree in courtyard with kind slogans.

Great atmosphere and lovely presentation. The food is fresh, simple, tasty, and sophisticated. They bake everything on site and also make the ice cream they sell. The service was acceptable; I wouldn't accuse them of being friendly and warm. I was disappointed not to be...More

Hello, they open at 8:00am and they serve breakfast. They have non stop service until 4:00pm. Sometimes I asked for the lunch menu during breakfast time and they always give you what you want.

Sorry, I don't know if you can bring your own wine. They have a contact page on their website, so you can ask them.
