Best Coffee Spots in Cabo San Lucas

Almond croissant, paired with a chai frappe.

Open from 6 am to 10 pm.

This is one of my favorite spots, located in the heart of downtown, next to a park with the Natural History Museum. Get your vanilla chai on the rocks for the hot Cabo weather and an almond croissant, a true delicacy. They complement each other so well. Take a little stroll, enjoy the palm trees, and even peek into the museum. Don't forget! You can get a bag of coffee beans and grind them at home or ask them to grind them for you. I enjoy this spot to take some time and sit down, hunker down with my computer and get some work done.

Open from Wednesday to Monday from 7 am to 10 pm.

Located on the entrance of town, Doce Cuarenta is right beside Sam's Club. This locale is more of a sit-down lunch with friends, paired with delicious food, baked goods, and great drink options. There is a little shopping center across the street from here, Plaza Pioneros, with gorgeous shops, salons, and even a car rental office.

Open from Monday to Saturday from 7:30 am to 11:30 pm.

Of all the cafés we're talking about, this one has the most expansive menu. Sandwiches, baguettes, pancakes, crepes, salmon bagels, and classic Mexican breakfasts like chilaquiles, machaca, and molletes. Just check out their Cinnamon Roll French Toast, to die for!

Chocolatini paired with caramel frappe.

Open from 7 am to 9 pm.

They opened up their doors about a year and a half ago. This spot is close to the marina, right across the street from the Cultural Pavillion, opposite en of the marina from Puerto Paraiso. They offer a decent hot and cold selection and, as always, baked goodies. Personally, this is more of a "quick stop, get your coffee and roll" kind of place, though they do offer free wifi and have a couple of tables.

Open from Monday to Saturday from 7 am to 9 pm.

This café is in Plaza Cota, a cute little mall hidden by a small parking lot. Order and check out their collection of cups on the wall while they make your drink. They also have drawings on a couple of paper cups. Take your drink and pastry to a table outside; they have a quaint patio between all the stores and office spaces.
