On a recent travel adventure to Baja, we had an evening cooking class at Cafe Brown. It was a great time with our friends - a chance to talk, drink margaritas, and then eat a meal together. I'd recommend it as a fun evening for anyone tired of restaurant food on a long vacation.

We had the pleasure of having Iker prepare meals for us 2 nights in December. We can't say enough. Iker's Guacamole is fantastic. Then, he also prepared his Pescado Afrodisiaco reipe and I could not get my wife off me for a couple of days. :-) Iker was very flexible and accomodating. He prepared Fish dishes, Deserts, Authentic Mexican fare... More

Tucked away off the street, and a little hard to find, this coffee house serves a great breakfast. The owner/chef is rightfully proud of his special recipe huevos rancheros sauce.

This is a gem. Just a few seats but an authentic restaurant with a very special owner. If you miss this Cafe, you miss having the Todos Santos experience. The food is fresh, local, prepared with love and makes you want to come back. The dinners are fantastic but the breakfast is to die for. Do not miss this one!

Chef and host Iker Comacho is an excellent source for information about the area, an attorney, translator, music lover. Not just a cafe..movies, music, cooking lesson, catering..this guy does it all..just ask!

Café Brown could easily be called Café Love, as chef/owner Iker Algorri says that the true secret to making delicious Mexican food is "to make it with love." Although Iker is not a professionally trained chef, his food is authentic, flavorful home-cooked fare. Here you can find the perfect Mexican dish finished with a dash of Iker’s love. His training...

Iker does all the right things and does them well. I cannot find any faults in what he calls "Mi Casa es tu Casa". Believe it! We have been coming to TS for 12 years and since Iker has had his cafe we have made it a regular stop. I recommend everyone do the same...make the effort, you'll be pleasantly... More

Cafe Brown has, without question, the very best and authentic Mexican food in Todos Santos. The prices are extremely affordable unlike most of the rest. Cafe Brown's international fresh brewed coffee selection is incredible. Each type of coffee I've had has been delicious. The owner, Iker, is on site all the time and is fun to speak with. He's fluent... More
