I was certainly surprised at the quality of the coffee here. Its a chain in Playa with multiple stops on the 5th ave strip. But the kicker is the coffee is great. Pleasantly surprised :) way better than starbucks.

This is an Excellent Coffee Shop, therefore it's difficult to rate it as a Restaurant. However, they have some of finest espresso drinks in all of Latin America and the Caribbean. Their chocolates and chocolate based products are great. Further, their price beat Starbucks significantly.

Visited this shop looking for gifts for our daughter. Great selection of chocolates. We brought back a variety of solid chocolates, chocolate body oil and a chocolate whisk. Employees were very friendly and helped full with exchange rate.

This place is my go to Cafe for doble espresso. They carry fresh squeezed OJ, make excellent cappuccino and other coffee's. Their ice cream is also excellent as is the service. Similar to Starbucks in some ways but much better coffee. Definitely try them out. You will be pleased!
