Description: San Angel Cafe (pronounced Ann hell)is an icon of Vallarta, open since 1998 it has been providing only the best service and quality foods and beverages, both to the locals and the tourist alike. We pride ourselves to be the introducers of gurmet coffee drinks to this town way before Satrbucks even knew it existed. Our concept is a Gourmet Diner, somewhwere where you can dine, wine or simply have coffee and pastries from our Calorie Gallery. We are two retaurants (separated by time rather than by space) under one roof, one is what is known by the american and canadian expats as The Breakfast Club, where you can have both, american and mexican breakfast. The other is The Hamburger Grill that features our list of very interesting burgers made with Angus Prime Beef prpared with our 20 year old recipe. San Angel is located in Olas Altas the main street of what we call the Latin Quarter of Vallarta, in a corner with a full sidewalk area where you can "watch the crazies walk by" and have fun while townspeople do their daily stuf. Come and have a delightfull couple of hours with us, and bring your dog too!

“Great coffee”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Visited this cafe almost every morning on a recent visit to Puerto Vallarta. Sometimes had their very good quality breakfasts, but always coffee. This was the best quality coffee I found in PV.

The serving staff are extremely friendly, and their w-fi excellent.

It's also a great people watching spot.

“Great Breakfasts !!!”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We discovered this cozy corner cafe. The granola/fruit & yogurt was the best, also great coffee and hot chocolate (ask for the real "mexican chocolate" not the powder). The lunch menu was also very good. The staff were always smiling and friendly. Great people watching spot!!

“Charming little bistro and bar”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

After a day of shopping downtown, we needed a soft seat and an energizing cup of coffee, and there was San Angel's! We settled in some comfy wicker chairs after placing our order for cappuccino. The ambiance is delightful, the menu looked to be full of scrumptious offerings, and the cappuccino was outstanding. We were sorry to leave after finishing our coffee; it is a magical little place. Service was prompt and friendly; we definitely want to return for drinks and to try out some menu items. Prices are very reasonable for such a chic little bistro!
