Just a delightful place for coffee and panini. Prices are reasonable. Staff pleasant and helpful. Ambience eclectic. The kind of place you can visit in pyjamas or a tux.

We really love coming here! It has a very nice ambiance, is cozy, well decorated and has strong coffee and tasty food. Love the tuna bagel and also the omelettes are great. They also make a really good chai tea and orangeade. Also if you need wifi or a place to have a quick business meeting, this is an excellent... More

This is a coffee and dessert place. Nice and quiet with free Wifi. The espresso was very good. We had the cheesecake which we wouldn't order again. We had really wanted the chocolate cake, but they were of it.

It was the cozy atmosphere, the books to borrow, the cleanest washroom I'm sure in all of Mexico which made the excellent coffee drinking experience even better. So much so I just had to have a piece of the kaluha cheese cake and return the next day. The staff is super friendly, speak English quite well, there's wifi plus it's... More

Cute cafe was quiet on a Saturday morning. Found it on Trip Advisor and it was walking distance from our hotel. Service was quick and friendly. Menu was basic, and covered all the basics for a decent selection of breakfasts. Food was tasty and quick. Walked by the previous evening and the place was packed - indicating the popularity. Definitely... More

We had seen this place that looks cozy, nice from outside. Decided to try it out and first thing we realize is that the letters that read the name of the place are not put in the right side of the door, then you read it from inside, not from outside. Fail!!! We had a cherry cheesecake, which was delicious,... More

Went with my family that I haven't seen in years. My wife and I ordered time passed we only got our drinks but not the food. When commented my dilemma with staff, I got brushed off. Instead of helping or prioritizing our meal the staff reacted unpleasantly. Do yourself a favor look elsewhere it looks quaint but looks are not... More

Precious little cafe / coffee shop. Excellent food! Excellent service! Terrific ambiance. I love the little tables and the quaint decor. They provide WiFi and A/C--which is an awesome perk in Vallarta. Prices are reasonable $ and food is excellent. So happy that they reopened after the water loss!!

I came here to do some work on my computer & found the wifi at Cafe Canela to be excellent! It was a pretty fast connection, which I was pleasantly surprised about. I didn't have anything to eat but enjoyed my big latte mug of coffee while I worked. :)
