We had breakfast here. It is a small and cosy cafe with a range of healthy and vegetarian friendly options to choose from such as smoothie bowls and avocado toast. We had a granola bowl with blueberries, banana and yoghurt, as well as eggs and...avocado on sourdough. The serving sizes were just right and the meal tasted nice. They accept cash or card with no additional charges.More

As much as I loved the local Salvadoran food (pupusas, steak, chicken) there was a point during my visit to El Tunco where I was seeking something on the lighter side which is why it was an awesome surprise to have found Day Cafe. Stay...was very friendly, space with small but cozy and the food delicious. Highly recommend even if you're willing to just find a place to read, relax and step away from the sun a bit.More

Awesome spot for smoothies and salads! Garden salad is so fresh and the house vinaigrette flavorful. Nice staff and owner. Highly recommend.

Day is a super consistent and healthy choice in Tunco for any time of day. The food is fresh and the meal choices are super intentionally healthy. I'm there once a day for sure during my visits to the area and have been going now...since the new owner took over 3 years ago. Can't go wrong with anything on the menuMore

My girlfriend and I have came here for 2 days running for an aftersurf brunch/lunch (and have only been in Tunco for 2 days). We have had the fruit bowls, Mexican bowl with cauliflower rice, salvadorian wrap, smoothies, juices and also tried the iced coffee...and it all kicks ass. Nothing really else like it in Tunco and the friendly lady that runs it knows what she’s doing. All the food is great and reasonably priced. Definitely recommend to hang here to escape the heat for breakfast or lunch.More

Came here 4 times to get our morning smoothie. The muscle juice was the go to. Banana, peanut butter and protein powder. Tasted delicious! All smoothies can be smoothie bowls and I imagine are delicious but we went for the cheaper option of the smoothie...each time. Can’t go wrong here!!More

Yummy smoothie bowl, a bit expensive for what it is but there is not a great selection of fruit and vegetables in the area. If you need a break from street side pupusas and are looking for some healthy options, this is the place to...go.More

Delicious wraps, bowls, avotoast. A bit overpriced and luckily we were the only visitors because there is only one lonely girl making the food.

Have been going to Day for a few years now during my visits to Tunco, and each trip I end up visiting Day more frequently. Super fresh, nutritious and creative food in an intimate space. This is one of the best places to eat your...fruits and veggies in town...and eat all your meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner are equally pleasing and consistently excellent...More
