The food was good here, but the restaurant is gone; I heard that the owners retired. The former café is now a lawyer's office.

Maybe because we don't fit the profile of "white gringos" but after eating here 5-6 times we decided to stop coming here. It honestly seems like a place where white people talk conspiracy theories. How do I know? Because everyone talks ridiculously loud and takes...More

Disappointed with the coffee. Coffee (cappuccino, cafe latte) was bad. Too hot, bad foam, too watery. There are far better options for coffee in town. the coconut cream pie on the other hand was really good

Sorry your cappuccino was bad. We were away for a week and our substitutes needed more training. Come again, tell us who you are and we'll give you a free replacement.

Windhorse is a good place to stop in for a coffee, breakfast, or even if you just need a break from exploring. The food is good, the wifi was reliable and the staff was very friendly.
