Good service but a bit expensive for what you get. The place is nicely situated in a very calm area.The coffea was not good and we had to have an early lunch.

This place is so great, a little slow to open but when it does best pancakes ever. The coffee was also amazing, real dark roast Costa Rican coffee. The service like most of the service in cahuita was aslo great. Great place for breakfast!

Mayela's tea room is a real treat for an early afternoon tea and cake. Generous servings which is always appreciated by someone with quite a sweet tooth.

Mayella's is a very nice spot to stop for breakfast, just a short walk from town up the street from "Pepe's beach.

We got good pancakes & crepes with fruit served happily by the owner. Not directly in the center of the village but worth the walk. They had some cakes in the fridge too.

A lovely outdoor restaurant a short walk from downtown. The food is very good, especially breakfast. Quiet neighborhood, lovely furnishings, friendly staff. Well worth the walk from town plus it's very close to the black beach..take a swim afterwards!
