Café El Espresso in Sayulita prides itself on brewing the perfect cup of coffee – a mix of the best quality coffee brewed by experienced baristas, then delivered to your table by our friendly staff.

At Café El Espresso we use a mixture of different beans from the very best coffee regions in Mexico: Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Veracruz. We follow the highest standards for cleanliness and innovation in the preparation of all of our food and drinks. And of course, we always give our customers the best smile and the best price for all of our delicious dishes. Add any of our low-fat milk, soy milk, 2% milk, lactose-free milk and real half-and-half options to personalize your cup!!

The original proprietor, Yesi, was born and raised in Sayulita. Yesi worked for several years as one of the best baristas at Coffee Cup, a famous line of cafes under the direction of Douglas Cullen. With her professional experience at Coffee Cup, and knowing that Coffee Cup had been recognized by various magazines specializing in the best espresso in Vallarta, Yesi decided to set out on her own in order to create the perfect cup of coffee for Sayulita locals and tourists. Her long-standing business success in Sayulita is a blend of both the great food she and her staff creates as well as her commitment to customer service.

Yesi describes her philosophy: “For me, making coffee is an art.”

We got coffee here a couple of times. They are friendly and the coffee/espresso is excellent. Also a nice place to strip and watch people in downtown or use the restroom after a cold drink. We also had the green smoothie one time which was soooo good.

Favorite smoothies, great breakfasts!
I discovered the pineapple mango smoothies at Café El Espresso on my first of three trips to Sayulita. For me no visit is complete without two or three of these refreshing beverages, called Sayulita Tropical on the menu. My friend likes El Espresso's chilaquiles with red sauce best of the several she has tried around town. The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is delicious and the location is easy to find across from the plaza. Give it a try.

I Eat Here Every, Single Day
I love this place. The Chiliquiles and Pork Machaca Burrito are my go-to dishes. I literally eat them everyday while in Sayulita. My daughter loves their smoothies and has tried every flavor. We'll be back in a couple weeks and, as usual, I plan to eat every breakfast at El Espresso,

Great coffee, but lousy afternoon service
Breakfasts and coffee are wonderful at this cafe. Dinners are good and reasonably priced as well.
Staff change (morning shift to afternoon shift) is at 2PM, so if you are looking for a late-ish lunch DO NOT show up after 1:30 expecting food and service. It's just not going happen! You may get one cup of coffee, but the waiting staff would rather sit and chat amongst themselves than wait tables.
