Cafe et Chocolat
Located in the sumptuous Fairmont Princess Hotel, Cafe et Chocolat is the place to go if you fancy a brunch, lunch, or decadent pastry to accompany your rich espresso. Complement your mocha with a flaky croissant, a blueberry muffin, or a traditional Mexican pan dulce. If you’re on a health kick, how about a black coffee with a honey drizzled pot of oatmeal? With combinations for everyone, Cafe et Chocolat is an excellent coffee option in the heart of Acapulco.

Olé Cafe & Pastel
Cakes and coffee are the order of the day at Olé Cafe & Pastel, making it one of several coffee shops on this list that doubles as a cake store. Indulge in a generous slice while you’re there, as their range of desserts make excellent companions to a hot cup of coffee. If you’re feeling the Acapulco heat however, do make sure to try one of their refreshing, but (most importantly) caffeinated, frappes; the perfect early morning pick-me-up or afternoon treat.

Desserts, desserts, and more desserts at Pastelería Sharon – with a side of coffee. There’s a selection of freshly baked breads, sometimes sweet, sometimes savory, as well as beautifully and professionally decorated cakes. The coffee is made to perfectly complement the desserts, with a selection of frappes with flavors such as rompope, white chocolate, and even Oreo biscuit. We recommend frappe de rompope, accompanied by pastel de chocolate.

Dulce Frida has embraced the cupcake trend, providing exquisitely decorated fondant cupcakes that make the perfect side to your coffee. However, if you’re feeling a bit cupcaked out, sample their freshly made crepes drizzled in dulce de leche as a fantastic alternative. The perfect presentation doesn’t stop at the sweets menu however, as their coffee comes served in glass mugs with crisply defined layers of milk, espresso, and foam.

While the majority of entries to this list have focused on both cakes and coffee, Cafe Wadi is the one that is all about the coffee. More specifically, all about the often overlooked Guerrero-grown coffee bean. Albeit located in a rather unassuming area, Café Wadi offers some spectacular quality coffee, which goes without saying given that it’s been in business since 1924. The café itself is crammed with different varieties of coffee beans, which are available for purchase. For coffee lovers, of all the places mentioned, this is a must not miss in Acapulco.
