“Simply Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

Rio Coco was closed when I first got to Utila but thankfully reopened while I was still staying litterally next door. The coffee is so great after having week brews. The deserts are out of this world: lemon bars, amazing; coffee cake, out of this world! Friendly staff makes hanging out such a pleasure. Met the local artist Neil there one afternoon and had such an amusing and interesting conversation. Rio Coco is the perfect place to hang. Enjoy!

“Best breakfast in the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Since I tasted their coffee i knew what people commented was true. Great coffee and you are able to mix flavors and different types of coffe,, tea, chocolate. Also they prepare different cakes that are really tasty.
The place is nice if you want to enjoy your breakfast there while reading a book or chatting with some friends.
And above all, the attention of their owners, that are very friendly.

“Excellent coffee and cake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

Fantastic place for coffee; really relaxing and a good escape from the sun. The people are lovely and friendly too. They also serve a super healthy green thing, which makes you feel 10 times better if you're a bit drowsy from diving/partying.

The best thing about it though is the cakes. The brownies are perfectly squidgy the lemon bar creamy and delicious, apple scones fruitful and flavoursome, and the cinnamon bun cake is the best cake ever (wish I'd got the recipe)!
