We went to Cafe El Faro on the recommendation of Deb at Tippy Toes spa (which itself is a must-see in Maz). El Faro is on the "main drag" in Old Mazatlan in a strip of restaurants right across from the Olas Altas beach. I am a big fan of "the little things" so I was very excited that not only is your first coffee free, but you can have a latte or cappuccino as your first. The cappuccino was fantastic - it was actually more of a latte, so if you don't like lattes, I'd say stick with straight coffee, but I was really happy with it. They advertise that they grind their own coffee. The service was good, very casual, and the price was really, really good. I had pancakes (30 pesos!) and hub had the Grande Slam (50 pesos!). The server brought my husband extra toast in case he was still hungry, and they have a really great salsa to go with the eggs. The food was really good - it's breakfast, and I rarely find breakfast terribly exciting, but I would certainly go back to El Faro and will recommend it highly.

Manolo aka Manny - brought La Cueva Del Leon out of the ashes... Last year's greatest hit in Olas Altas.

The owner of Cafe El Faro - the latest little upstart cafe en El Malecon de Olas Altas - managed to bring this master chef to our favorite hangout.

Cheap plates - $50 - full meals and great food. Wonderful friendly place - I visit every day - and the food and prices have just gotten so much better I had to make a little noise.

Try the Chili Rellenos - or not a vegetarian - their plates of beef and pork are huge - more than I have ever been able to finish. And cheap!

Coming to Mazatlan or live here with us already - check out Cafe El Faro.
