I love Amarantha and Conny who always welcome me with a big smile and a hug. The other patrons are a wonderful cross-section of Puerto Vallarta life. We frequently get lunch there and are always happy---in body and spirit! They have lots of used books and a zillion games (including Quiddler) so it's easy to have a delicious coffee and... More

Select dark roast coffee beans from Chiapas masterfully made into espressos with great (non acrid) coffee taste and aftertaste. The best in PV. Connie the cook does a masterful job preparing breakfast and lunch including vegetarian dishes. Great flavor, creative combination of fresh ingredients and artful arrangement of food on the plate. Location is very accessible in the heart of... More

For the cappacino connoisseur! Strong coffee with lots of foam! We loved the Mexican charm of this Cafe set back a few blocks from the beach on a narrow sidewalk. A few colorful chairs and tiny wooden table outside provide a welcoming sign that there is more to look forward to inside. Owner is attentive and welcomed us warmly upon... More

This is a fantastic coffee shop! The drinks and food are great, the prices are reasonable and the owners are wonderful. If you have a coffee and sit in the chairs out front, you are sure to have some great conversations with tourists and locals alike I highly recommend it for all - coffee, lattes, juices, food and pleasant times

We had smoothies, coffee and breakfast here. Everything is yummy good. There is one queen Chihuahua that resides here. She is warm but it is simply known that she is the Queen Bee of the premises. She is beautiful. Food is great as well as customer service. Yummy-good.

Right across the street is a Columbian coffee house featuring coffee from that country. It has high ceilings and hard surfaces and an almost sterile atmosphere. Who wants that from a coffee house? Not me. I thought I was going to just walk by El Sofa but a lady sitting at a table near the sidewalk said “Best coffee in... More
