Coffee Shop
“Located in a renovated historic home in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood, Cenote specializes in high quality espresso and local fair trade coffees, but that isn't all this coffeehouse has to offer. The menu includes delicious pastries, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads and plenty of gluten-free options, all made with local organic ingredients. With great coffee, fresh food, and a comfortable atmosphere, Cenote is definitely worth checking out.”
