The live music was very enjoyable- and not oldie rock and roll excellent guitar in the group. Well worth a tip. I couldn't pass up the mushroom omelet, which I shared with my husband. Glad we went.

Visited for breakfast twice and once Saturday night for live music and dancing upstairs.

I recommend stopping here if staying in La Cruz.

The restaurant / cafe has a nice atmosphere. Essentially an outdoor courtyard with Wifi available. The breakfast menu has all the standard offerings and we enjoyed our food.

The bar is open upstairs on Friday and Saturday nights. We heard a great band Saturday night (African rhythm influenced). Following the band, there were several dance performances by talented expat women-won't go into details but very unusual and entertaining. A younger vibe than Philo's Bar, thankfully.

Something a little different. Been there twice this year with friends. Nice folks, pretty limited menu, so you may not always find something appealing to your taste. More courtyard coffee shop than restaurant. Service a little slower second time around, but OK. Friendly. Nice small souvenir gallery at back, with Indian beaded work as mentioned below. Has an upper section that we didnt explore, probably where the music scene is.

I found this very cool place on a little dusty street on a quiet Sunday morning. Strolled in and found a delightful hip coffeehouse/bistro/live music venue with a Huichol Indian beaded crafts gallery featuring truly fine work. The owners of the Octopus' Garden/Jardin del Pulpo are fascinating folks - a couple who built their own boat and sailed to Mexico from England years ago and made a new life. I heard a wonderful Spanish guitar/jazz trio that plays there frequently along with Sunday brunch. Very eclectic audience and beautiful ambiance! Just loved it!
