Fast service. Hectic, busy at lunch time. This food joint has been around for many years. I visit weekly . They have a special lunch menu, but sometimes you have to ask for it. The food is tasty and features local dishes. Breakfast is efficient and the mood is relaxed compared to lunch time.

Great cafe. Try the coffee w/milk and the Tres Leches cake. It's the most delicious dessert I have ever eaten.

I went here based on Tripadvisor reviews, and it lived up to the hype. The food was good and plentiful, there are fewer tourists than locals at lunch, and the price is right. Just be sure to look at who is serviing the section you sit at- I found a section without many people, and it turned out that the server there was not very people oriented. He did the job, but nothing more. Other sections of the counter had servers who chatted and took pictures, and looked like they were really enjoying their jobs.

Found this place from a group of ladies that were travelling from NY. They were on their way there and just tagged along. The food was great, tasty, fast and inexpensive, the service is like eating with family, awesome!!!

I have been at Cafe Manolin a few times, and I am always very pleased with the service, the food and the prices. The mofongo is really good and priced decently. Last Saturday we had two sandwiches with fries at 5.95 each and I could not finish mine. They were very good, as well as my acerola juice.
We will be back :)
