This little restaurant has lovely food and coffee. As it also hosts artists' work, the cafe has a very laid back ambience to savour what's on the menu. It may be off the main street at Coco but it is worth the diversion to Kaixo.

Kaixo has about six tables and is a true small format restaurant. The food is excellent and the service just as good. We had an order of mushroom toast and the stuffed red peppers and they were marvelous! I strongly recommend a visit.
