This is one of my favorite places in town. It's a chill café with a very nice staff and really good breakfast.

For my first visit to Buenavida, I was thoroughly impressed. There were 5 of us and we each ordered something different and taste-tested them all. My Dirty Chai Tea was excellent - just enough spice and a hint of sweetness. My friend's chocolate volcano dessert was rich and satisfying and everyone else's coffee drinks were perfect. This is a small place, owned and run by a very nice couple. I like to support local businesses and this is a place I will return to many times.

Great place for coffee and dessert. It's a nice location, they have good coffee (different preparations like V60, Siphon, Aeropress...) and the volcano de chocolate was amazing. The service is nice and attentive and the place is nice and cozy.

We are marginal fans of coffee drinks and hanging out at coffee bars but this place is outstanding. We will return again for sure. Presentation was amazing and the drinks and food tasted better than they looked. The staff was really kind and very helpful. They worked with us in spanish and english. Loved the Dirty Chai and the Irish Coffee. Do not miss the Volcan Chocolate, WOW.
