For a burger and/or breakfast it cannot be beat. The food is fresh, served quickly and the staff is very friendly. Make sure you're clear on whether you want tap or bottled water. They tend to throw you a bottle (charge) vs. tap water, which is now a non-issue in most PV eateries. As other have indicated, it's a bit... More

Great stop for American breakfast or burgers and some more Mexican type dishes. Judging from the signs you can tell where they stand on the Trump issue. If you disagree you might as well eat elsewhere. Food was good, I had a tuna steak and salad while my friends had a more traditional American breakfast with a side of tacos.... More

I had made many visits to this restaurant & found that the same dish tastes different each time due to different chefs on-duty. While the food standards are inconsistent, the freshness of the ingredients used & the service standards are always consistently good.

Wow. Incredible burger. Went with waiter's suggestions. We were thrilled. Might have been the best burgers we've ever had.

Cafe San Angel's food is delicious, their menu is large and very reasonable. I recommend this place for breakfast/lunch/dinner. The people watching is great and there's plenty of shaded tables. Service is friendly as well.

I picked this place for dinner because it was the only one on this whole strip that had nobody there. I was looking for some food without the Music and the liquored up ladies. Menu offers lots of choices. I picked the Argentina Burger. It was presented nicely on a small wooden tray with a small crate of fries. It... More

This place in Romantic Zone is ideal for having breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food is really good and prices are affordable. You should try the Fish Tacos or the Arrachera tacos. Hamburgers are also a good option.

I've made Cafe San Angel my first stop every time I've come to PV. It's located on the vibrant main street and has excellent food (and a great sense of humor)

Was amazed by the size of the portions. I went for both bkfst and lunch. Great food at a good value. Service is a bit slow, due only one or two persons working. However the people watching view is great.

We have been regulars here for breakfast on our annual visit to PV. Very good, reliable food, friendly efficient service. Orange muffins to die for.

Description
San Angel Cafe (pronounced Ann hell)is an icon of Vallarta, open since 1998 it has been providing only the best service and quality foods and beverages, both to the locals and the tourist alike. We pride ourselves to be the introducers of gurmet coffee drinks to this town way before Satrbucks even knew it existed. Our concept is a Gourmet Diner, somewhwere where you can dine, wine or simply have coffee and pastries from our Calorie Gallery. We are two retaurants (separated by time rather than by space) under one roof, one is what is known by the american and canadian expats as The Breakfast Club, where you can have both, american and mexican breakfast. The other is The Hamburger Grill that features our list of very interesting burgers made with Angus Prime Beef prpared with our 20 year old recipe. San Angel is located in Olas Altas the main street of what we call the Latin Quarter of Vallarta, in a corner with a full sidewalk area where you can "watch the crazies walk by" and have fun while townspeople do their daily stuf. Come and have a delightfull couple of hours with us, and bring your dog too!
