We first discovered El Jarro Cafe in January 2017 and vowed to return at our next opportunity, which we did in April. My husband loves their pineapple smoothies and I'm hooked on their watermelon juice and/or smoothie- they are not overly sweet at all, they're perfect. We've enjoyed breakfast and lunch at El Jarro and have had good service. Regardless... More

El Jarro is the best in Cabo! Great food, great prices, and a good team of people running it! The owner Kel will take great care of you.

This clean, little cafe is tucked on a side street in between several large beach resorts. The food is excellent, reasonably priced and the staff is friendly. We ate breakfast there almost daily. My daughter enjoyed the smoothies made from all fresh ingredients and I enjoyed a great Latte and huevos rancheros. Best little eatery find of our trip.

We found this little place on day two of our trip and returned every morning we did have other early plans. Food is delicious, smoothies are great, service is friendly. It's a gem of a place and I'm just sad I can't have breakfast there tomorrow too.

One morning, I was starving and my husband was not. I love to try little local joints, and I came across this place. It is definitly a no frills spot, but the food was delicious and cheap! I had the divorced eggs and it was delicious! The coffee was also pretty decent. You cant beat this place for the price... More

My husband and I came here because we had seen streams of locals going in and out a few days ago and figured it must be good. It is!! The coffee is delicious ... both the plain and the specialty flavors. We both had chilaquiles ... one with beef and one with eggs. Yum! Food is fresh and so tasty!... More

We were recommended to eat here on our way to Médano Beach. We arrived at 9.15 to get the last two seats for breakfast. It was full of locals, beach vendors and tourists. It's like a shack with seating for about 20. The food is traditional, of great quality and very well priced. We chose divorced eggs. See my photos... More

I hate to say too much about this place at teh risk of it becoming too popular. The best food in Cabo, in a small quaint setting, served by locals, at prices not found nearly anywhere else in town. If you love the true old flavors of Mexico, you'll love this place.

This little out of the way gem was a great find. Quite little café serves great coffee items and amazing low cost breakfast. Located a couple hundred yards from Bahia and Casa Dorado.

Fantastic little inexpensive cafe serving breakfasts, lunches and 'real' cappucino. Owner is European and has serves authentic waffles. A little gem of a place with seating for about 15.
