Coffee was smooth and service was quick. Free wi-fi was a plus. The interior was air conditioned and dark, making it a perfect place to rest from the afternoon sun.

After trying out a few other local spots and leaving less than impressed with their espresso, I came to Cuatro Sombros. Much to my delight, they actually put focus and effort into their espresso drinks and their fresh baked good are superb. This became my...More
