El Sofa Cafe is a Puerto Vallarta favorite for coffee, conversation, and camaraderie. As you might have guessed from the name, you can find comfortable, over-stuffed couches and love seats for your utmost comfort at this lovable hole-in-the-wall. Not only is the staff bilingual, but El Sofa''s owner Amaranta Alcala really makes your experience at El Sofa shine with her warm greetings and heart-felt conversation.

Whether you''re looking for something to drink or eat, El Sofa delivers. You can get fresh agua frescas made right before your eyes, as well as espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, chai tea, americanos, mochas, hot chocolate, Italian sodas, and fruit smoothies. Frequently when one walks into El Sofa, they are seduced by the smell of Amaranta''s peanut butter cookies coming out of the oven. She also offers sandwiches, salads, brownies, a fruit, granola, and yogurt bowl, and her signature pita pizzas with pesto sauce.

Many patrons at El Sofa bring their laptops to enjoy the free WiFi with their purchases. If you don''t have a computer, you can rent time on one of El Sofa''s desktop computers. There is also a printer available for customer use. El Sofa offers a used English book exchange as well. Additionally, you''ll enjoy the very eclectic, colorful art by local artists on display and for sale—great conversation starters!
