This is our daily go to place for coffee whenever we stay on the island. There are very few places with an espresso machine, and this place serves excellent lattes. Also, the owner is friendly and speaks English! We have not eaten in the cafe, but the menu serves local specialties.

Great service, fun & bubbly atmosphere, lots of interesting and accommodating colorful local people who make it feel like family! Was there in the evening for beers and tequila early in the trip, made some terrific new friends with a chill vibe who hooked us up all week with island hospitality and great information & directions. Went back but hours... More

We had walked past a few times and decided to stop for a Margarita. Glad we did. So many ways people make Margaritas, some good, some not. This place makes a winner. So good we had 2 and ordered some nachos which didn't disappoint either. We'll be back next trip.

We visited this place based on Lonely Planet recommendation and it did not disappoint us. The Mexican food was delicious and the staff was super nice. Highly recommended.

Very very good food. Our host was probably the best on the island, knowledgeable about his menu and was so entertaining. Open kitchen just a few feet a way is a treat to watch
