grand cup of coffee and real friendly staff. They are very proud of their Ponche Suizo recipe which Roberto gave us a free sample! also checked out his 'off the menu' cold coffee which also was tasty..

My husband and I went wandering around looking for this little cafe to try this famous unique beverage that people deemed a "must try" on Trip Advisor. We split one between the two of us... and after one bite, my husband had had enough. I gave it about 6 bites and concluded that it was a bit strange eating flavored whipped topping with a spoon... I don't know why someone would say that it was refreshing or cool because it wasn't either one. Room temperature Cool Whip, but not as sweet and with a distant flavor I couldn't really identify (not a bad flavor, but not particular interesting).

Basically, we concluded that this drink/beverage should be a topping on fruit or cake or ice cream instead of consumed as a stand-alone item.

The owner was friendly and gave me a free drink sample after I chose the afternoon special of cake and capuccino ($3.75)
The house special is a custardy drink somewhat like a shake or an Orange Julius- very refreshing on a warm day.

The Ponche Suiza is a unique drink. It's almost like whipped egg nog. The gentlemen running the establishment is very nice, and the cafe's other offerings are solid.
