Puerto Vallarta - espresso / coffee / cafe suggestions?

rln Jun 11, 2008 08:47 PM

Hello- A San Francisco chowhound here! I'm off to visit PV for the first time in Oct for my sister's wedding and planning ahead.

Any recommendations where I can find good espresso drinks? Or variations? Coffee and cafe places too. In SF, I tend to not like Starbucks.

Thanks very much for any leads!

    No intended implication but the Gay Guide just has the best list of coffee shops at

    I buy all my coffee at Oro Verde (closed on Saturday for the summer).

      Thank you! Great list-- have you been to Choco Banana / Banana Cantina? Is it good? The description sounds good.

        Banana Cantina is one of the good places. However the owner recently passed away. I assume his wife and partner in the restaurant will continue but have to see in October. http://bananacantina.com/main/
