Fodor's Expert Review Cabahá
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The hip decor of this diminutive café a few steps from the beach illustrates the same good taste as the music, top-shelf liquor, fresh-fruit drinks, and healthful fare. The fresh mango juice with añejo rum and triple sec may be the best cocktail you'll have in the Dominican Republic—unless you try the special-recipe mojitos with crushed ice. Breakfast can be anything from fresh smoothies to muesli, omelets, crêpes, and fresh bagels. Organic salads and sandwiches, such as smoked salmon and cream cheese on dark bread, are on the lunch menu. Picaderas (tapas) and fish ceviche are on offer for dinner. New American owners have kept many of the original items on the menu (such as the hummus with a drizzle of house-made pepper oil), redecorated, expanded the cocktail menu, and added more innovative sandwiches and high-quality wines (mainly French and Italian) available by the glass and the bottle. Everything is low-calorie and healthful, which leaves room for decadent desserts such as chocolate cake, which pairs well with one of their specialty coffees.
