Coffee in Cabo

Earlier this year, we took our annual trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Cabo is a second home for us, and we’ve been going there for the last 10 years (less the Covid years). This year was special because we brought our kids (5 and almost 3 years old). While we often get our morning lattes from the resort coffee shop, we enjoy going off the resort in search of the best coffee in Cabo.

Land’s End Coffee Roaster

We found Land’s End a couple years ago. The “croffle” sign out front caught our attention. Since we enjoy basic lattes without sugar-filled syrups covering up the taste, we tend to be more critical about the milk-to-espresso ratio and the temperature of the milk. Both these factors have a dramatic impact on the taste of the latte. When a coffee shop’s “small” latte size is 12oz (which usually comes with 1 shot of espresso), we order a second shot to balance the milk-to-espresso ratio. At Land’s End, we added that extra shot, and the final result was quite enjoyable.

Now onto the “croffle.” Think croissant + waffle because that’s exactly what it is, and it’s delicious. They slice open a large croissant, spread Nutella on the inside, and warm it for 90 seconds in a waffle iron. It’s so simple and even the kids loved it! We brought this idea back home with us and now enjoy “croffles” as a special treat.

Baja Coffee Company

Located in the Marina, this tiny (and I mean tiny) coffee shop served up a decent latte. I believe this location is new because I don’t recall it from past years; however, they may have other locations. I ordered this 12oz small latte with an extra shot of espresso to balance the taste. January mornings in Cabo are cool (50s-60s Fahrenheit), so a warm latte is still appropriate before the temps rise. If you find yourself in Cabo wanting a latte, you can find this place near the Cabo sign and Tequila Lighthouse gift shop in the Marina. There is no sitting area, so just grab your coffee and keep walking.
