We stopped at Cafe del Mar for a drink. I ordered a pinapple "frias nel latte". It was completely warm and tasted awful! My friend had an Ice Coffee - it was much too sweet and he couldn't drink it.

A most pleasant spot for morning coffee. They open at 0730 punctually, a plus for Type A gringos. The baristas/waitresses are charming and attentive. The coffee con leche is as good as it gets. I admittedly spend an inordinate length of time here.
