I have enjoyed the coffee and breakfast at this cafe a couple times. It is located in the downtown center and is close to everything. The food is very natural and healthy; not swimming in grease. The Cafe is quaint and sits in a small open area. I highly recommend. The omelet is wonderful, just saying! Enjoy!

Espresso is amazing.Pastries are also nice with your beverage. A little warm with only fans but part of the rustic desert area in Los Cabo. Breakfast is offered at a nice quaint place in the same plaza and tables and chairs are ample. Nice quiet place to read while having your morning coffee

the location of Cafe Dona Nena is wonderful- it is tucked away amidst a bustling busy street. Feels like a mini oasis in their courtyard. I love their coffees- they have a wide range of any espresso drink you could want, including some crazy dessert-type concoctions. They also have some nice sweet and savory snacks on hand.

We stumbled upon this place while walking around in midday heat one quiet Sunday. Dona Nena is tucked in a new-looking building with a coffee bar that looks like something you'd find in Chelsea Market. Over two visits, we ordered iced lattes, Americanos and hot lattes. All were so good. The chocolate croissant hit the spot; as did the cinnamon... More

I had been craving a good mug of Mexican hot chocolate - this was the perfect fulfillment on a chilly evening. Steamed, chocolatey, and warmly spicey. So glad we found you!

I was walking the street my hotel was on and came across this beautiful patio cafe. I ordered a Mocha not realizing it was a "mexican mocha" meaning it has a little spice to it. I normally hate spicy anything but this mocha was AMAZING! It was the perfect balance between sweet and spicy. I believe the spice was cinnamon... More

This is a great place to get a coffee, pastries (from the bakery a few doors down) or an ice cream. It's on a covered patio/breezeway, with lots of tables. Great place to relax, get some free wifi and have a coffee.

Everymorning on my way to the office, I make a stop a Cafe Doña Nena; once you get into this tinny plaza, everything seems to be perfect, its arquitecture style, the patio and water fountain but what really amaze me is the flavors!!! Coffee from Veracruz strong and very aromatic & my turkey croissant and extra olives, just to start..... More

Modern and clean coffee, bakery and gelato shop. Plenty of seats. Good service. Good coffee. Very good flan! Kinda standard and sterile in its moden and clean atmosphere but if you're there... Worth the stop.
