Great place for a pastry and a coffee or latte! We did the "grab-and-go" at Aluxes just about everyday on our way to go scuba diving. Fast and friendly service. Highly recommend!

I started most of my days on the island at Aluxes with a double espresso and either their banana or zucchini bread, both of which are great. Yvan and the other lady who runs the place are very friendly and speak several languages.

Aluxes is a kind of quick fix café without tons of options but what they offer is really good. I have not found better coffee on the island anywhere else, and I have looked!

Also, they open at 7am which is awesome if you have early activities planned. A lot of the more commercial restaurants along the strip open much later.

If you go there, tell Ivan that Chantal sends friendly kisses from Montreal!

This is a great concept and is needed on the island but the coffee is all over the map one day you can get a real good cup of coffee and the next it is just brown hot water...
They have a big expresso machine and could make great coffee. EXPRESSO OR AMARICANO
they make Amaricano coffee in a big bulk machine that would be great for a wedding or a grocery store (where its free) but not for a coffee shop.
the Banana bread could be good if it was cooked on top.
There is lots of money to be made selling coffee and quick snacks Starbucks and Timhortans have done it selling GOOD COFFEE.
