Docecuarenta translates to “12:40” in Spanish, though initially a modest spot in downtown La Paz back in 2014, its unique charm and chilled ambiance made it stand out from the competition, offering a European-style brunch menu and high-quality Mexican coffee.

Being a local, I’m pleased to see how this spot has evolved, providing not just fantastic coffee but also some tasty options for food enthusiasts like myself. And it seems to be improving with each visit.

Our recommendations

Personally, I love ordering their matcha tradicional and hummus toast after my gym sessions; totally guilt-free yet delicious— sets me up for a productive day at work 😎

However, there are other great items we can recommend like the avocado toast with poached eggs (our forever favs!), roast beef sandwich, spinach or broccoli quiche, chai latte, lemon tart, and, of course, all sorts of coffee presentations.

This coffee shop started out like any other, but over the years, it has shown a special characteristic for the residents of Baja California Sur: all branches are digital nomad-friendly, and that’s pretty awesome.

Although you’ll generally see spaces filled with tourists and locals, in groups or couples, enjoying good coffee and sampling bakery delights, Docecuarenta is the favorite spot for home-office enthusiasts—and coffee lovers!

For sure, Docecuarenta is a solid spot to hit up while cruising around La Baja Sur (the new coffee roasters’ hub). And seriously, who wouldn’t want to sip on some of the area’s top-notch coffee while soaking in the beauty of the Sea of Cortez?
