Description: Rico's Cafe opened in 2000 as Mazatlan´s only cafe. Our simple desire was to inspire customers by offering an inviting place to enjoy Mexico's best coffees prepared by our expert baristas. Today we enjoy a loyal following of locals as well as tourists who seek out our homemade breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and specialty crepes. We also offer freshly-baked breads and pastries, frappes and imported teas, in addition to our coffees which we roast on the premises. Rico's terraces are a great place for groups to gather, our booths are ideal for private conversations and our long tables in front of the main bar are great for people watching and meeting others. Free high-speed Internet, music and personalized service make this a second home for many customers. You will leave inspired, and say "Que rico!"

El Cid wanted $8.00 per day for Wifi, I refused to pay that, would much rather keep this for tips. A short walk down the street I found Rico's, FREE Internet, great ice'd cappaccino , and very friendly staff, I was there every day,

“Awesome Tea Great Food !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

What a wonderful place to go for Breakfast Brunch of Lunch. Free internet with a code that they give you. The service is fast and Friendly. Amazing Tea absolutely Huge Tea Bags, I sure wish you could buy this Tea I would have brought pounds of it home with me. Breakfast was tasty and always looked pretty. I adored the Crepe wrapped Omelette. Lots of interesting choices on the Menu and always busy but we never felt rushed, loved that ! In the El Cid Resort they have a little Rico's to get Coffee andTea, it is also very good with very good Service.

“Best place for coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have been to mazatlan 4 times in the past year and a half. Always traveled all inclusive, always came to Rico's for breakfast. Doesn't say much for the hotel food. Great wifi, great caramel lattes and the crepes and blintzes are amazing.
No wonder they have 3 locations.

“GREAT COFFEE,GREAT FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Went to both Rico's in Mazatlan.The coffee beans are roasted on sight. Excellent food and large portions,and the deserts are scumptious.
Met the owner,she came and sat for a chat and she is from the states and she loves her job and her work and was very pleasantto talk to.
So if you get a chance stop in and enjoy and relax and have a cup.
