I'm not that surprised by the good reviews by tourists but the food here is bland and boring international style. Breakfast had no flavor and we didn't enjoy it at all. If you dislike flavor, seasoning, or spice, you will probably enjoy this spot.

They have a great laid back atmosphere, casual and friendly. Great coffee too! Bought 2 kilos of beans while there not to mention their fantastic bakery! You must go there!

I ate at El Cafecito in Playa Zicatela and down on Benito Juarez. The second time, begrudgingly, because whilst the food and service are fine, they are nothing to write home about, and it's expensive. It's an option but there are plenty of others!

There are two Cafecitos, one on Rinconada and one on Zicatela beach. Both extremely popular, there's sometimes a short wait on weekends. Food is unfailingly good, bakery on premises, great rolls, danish, pastries. Best coffee in town. Outstanding breakfast plates, nicknamed "starving surfers" with French...More
