Revolver Espresso prides itself for having some of the best brews on the island. And we agree! This cozy café-restaurant serves up a variety of artisanal coffees and frappes made from local beans. The café also uses La Marzocco coffee machines and Mazza grinders to bring out the robust flavors of the beans. But apart from its delightful coffee, the café also is a popular breakfast spot for locals, expats and holidaymakers.
