Description: Rico's Cafe opened in 2000 as Mazatlan´s only cafe. Our simple desire was to inspire customers by offering an inviting place to enjoy Mexico's best coffees prepared by our expert baristas. Today we enjoy a loyal following of locals as well as tourists who seek out our homemade breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and specialty crepes. We also offer freshly-baked breads and pastries, frappes and imported teas, in addition to our coffees which we roast on the premises. Rico's terraces are a great place for groups to gather, our booths are ideal for private conversations and our long tables in front of the main bar are great for people watching and meeting others. Free high-speed Internet, music and personalized service make this a second home for many customers. You will leave inspired, and say "Que rico!"

We stopped here to get a good coffee drink (Mocha). The drink and the service was very good. We returned another day and got another Mocha. This place just appeals to me as one can duck out of the harsh sunlight and relax with a good drink and watch the traffic and people scurry past you at breakneck speed. Next visit I intend to have a meal here. Sounds good to me.

This is our first visit to Mazatlan. We have had breakfast at Rico's three mornings. I am not a coffee drinker so can't speak to that but I love a good breakfast and that's what we found here. The breakfast crepes are fabulous. My breakfast panini also was very tasty. They advertise fresh,farm to table food and we found that to be true. Our waiter, Aldo, was very pleasant and accommodating. Generous portions, reasonable prices.

Great breakfast with organic options! Hot and frozen coffees were good too! Was seated quickly and had great service! Loved the small coffee shop feel!

Just looking for a decent cup of coffee at around 2pm and we found this little coffee shop in el CID resort . Firstly we waited by the till to order where the barista decided if she ignored us long enough we'd go away. We didn't. so we ordered a cup of coffee with milk, a cinnamon latte, and a muffin. the coffee we ordered didn't have any milk in it but it did have a lot of grinds, and at the bottom of the latte a sludgy cinnamon mess. we were rudely asked to leave because they were closing?! At 2pm when the sign clearly read " open 6am to 7pm" no arguments there! We left and never are we going back! But the muffin was excellent.

Slow service, but not glacial. The food is just OK (my sandwich was toasted into oblivion) and the coffee is strong (a good thing in my opinion). I felt that the music, while pleasant at normal volume, was too loud and made it difficult to have a conversation.
