Best organic cafe

Think best San Francisco organic cafe with home made everything, add a dash of tropical breeze to the outdoor setup, now think of Jamaican reggae vibe in this Costa Rican village on the Carribean coast and you are there! The food is wonderfully creative and the

I had the cinnamon pancakes which had a chewy and grainy texture. It was very expensive. The place is cute but there are better places to eat in the area.

Staff could have been a bit more friendly, but there chocolate cake and chocolate desserts more than make up for it. Breakfast was also good

We went here on the recommendation of some family after they had been there the day before. The sandwiches were fabulous. I had the jerk chicken and it was so tender and flavourful.

Definitely come here for late brunch! Really good biscuits and gravy, homemade PB & J, fried egg sandwich, mint brownie sundae...everything is so amazing! We ate here 3 times during our trip and would've gone more if we had more days.

Had a sandwich and a coffee. The coffee was nice but it attracts the price of an espresso coffee even though it's a only a plunger. The beans seem of good quality though. The sandwich was tasty but disappointing at the same time. I had the turkey sandwich and there was an embarrassing amount of meat in it. There was... More

We ordered a variety of things between the five of us. Three people had eggs, two the rich creamy scrambled and one the over easy. All three came with well seasoned potatoes and a choice of breads. All three ordered bacon also. The other two ordered the French toast and Caribbean pancakes with fresh fruit. These were both served with... More

This is a great resturant. The food was amazing (especially the bread, peanut butter and chocolate). The jam was pretty amazing too. The owner walked around and checked in all the tables and asked how everyone was doing. One of the servers fed an iguana sitting on a bush to the side of the restaurant...he was too cute and we...
