Stopped here before our drive to the coast from Barra Honda. What a breath of fresh (and cool) air. Fantastic homemade ice cream and pastries. Had an Affagato -- espresso over ice cream which was great. Nice host.

We never made it to the National Park because we spent the hour we had at this fun little cafe. Andrea's food was outstanding - we had lasagna, an empanada, fresh fruit smoothies and cafe con leche. We also really enjoyed conversing with her and her friend from Jamaica. Pura Vida!!

Delicious fresh and selfmade dishes served next to the beautiful national park Barra Honda. The perfect place to start or end your trip to the caves while having a talk with the lovely owner. I will come back for sure!

Andrea, Andrea, Andrea! Cafe Kura is a colourful little oasis near the enrtrance to Parque Barra Honda, run by a wonderful, helpful, friendly woman named Andrea. Andrea saved us from what might have been a total disaster of a day trip. Set us up with a place to stay in the area that honestly became the highlight of our trip.... More

Cafe Kura is a great restaurant, with a great owner! Andrea is incredibly nice and a great host, as well as a great cook! The homemade icecream is some of the best I've ever had, the peanutbutter icecream is amazing! If you are ever in the NIcoya area check this place out!

We enjoyed the delicious ice cream and milkshakes after our hike and cave exploring in Barra Honda. I also loved the beautiful and original handmade jewelry and clothing Andrea (the owner) carries. She makes a real effort to sell handcrafted items made by local women. Great stop!

Café Kura is a really charming, nice place, perfectly situated on the way to the national park of Barra Honda. Not only the food is delicious (we tried the homemade icecream), most important the owner Andrea from Germany is a superfriendly, warmharted, welcoming person who makes your stop at Café Kura a never-forget-experience!! Thanks so much! :-)
