“LOVED this cafe!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

We just spent a week in Santa Teresa, and were so thankful to find Couleur Cafe. Coming from SF, we are very particular about good food, and Cafe Couleur delivered! We had lunch there (3 times) and dinner (1 time) and each meal was delicious. The pastel salad in a wrap for lunch was a favorite, and all ingredients are organic and locally raised/grown if possible. Sebastien and his team were all extremely friendly and wonderful.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

We have been staying in the playa hermosa area for a month now and Couleur cafe has become one of our favorite places. The laid back atmosphere and proximity to the best beach are amazing but wait till you taste the food! The fresh farm egg omelet, crepes and Benedict are the best I've had in Santa teresa bar none. The fish and chips and salads are also wonderful for lunch. The atmosphere is very convivial and quickly feels like home away from home. Sebastian the French owner and chef takes the time to welcome everyone like old friends, he cooks with local ingredients and has an amazing flair for food. I highly recommend Couleur for breakfast lunch or dinner.

“Wonderful spot...”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Can't believe we have such an amazing cafe on this quieter north part of town! The food is delicious, the staff is wonderful & friendly, and the decor is cute & funky. Been there for dinner and lunch several times, and every time it was fantastic. Lunch is fresh and simple: healthy salads, sandwiches, etc., and (our kids' fav) the fish and chips. Dinner offered twice a week is casual but elegant, with a small chalkboard, every-changing menu with something for everyone. The French owner/chef takes a lot of pride in his craft, and it shows. Oh, and real fruit smoothies and cappuccinos....yum. This is a must-try, especially if visiting Hermosa Beach, but worth a drive from Santa Teresa either way!

“Possibly the best cafe in the world!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

This is the perfect cafe for the perfect beach in the best area of Santa Teresa. I love the food, the owners, the staff, the decor and especially the Hermosa salad or fish and chips! A wonderful place to eat but also hang out and meet locals.
