My close female travelling companion and I decided that this was going to be a restaurant where we would obtain food from one afternoon. I will preface this by saying that we are familiar with cafes and restaurants of this nature (quality, local ingredients, gluten-free options, smoothies, kombucha, and so on..) from our own Canadian home towns. So I was... More

Very friendly staff and lovely place. The only BUT is : you have to wait for your food, up... More

I parked my bike and enjoyed a great breakfast by myself just watching the bikes and sloths pass me by. Well, not the sloths, but the bikes and an occasional car. The staff was nice. They were out of some things but the drinks were fresh and nice, the food great and I even met some of the local ex... More

Closed and taped up by some bureaucracy! How awful! Luckily I got to try it before this happened and it was pretty good. I thought the service was good and the Wi-Fi is great too! A bit expensive, but quality food often is!!

Stopped by for breakfast but was told by a local it had been closed for about a week and they didn't think it would reopen. A few restaurants around town had closed to renovate in order to gain new permits.

Rented a bike and found this place on our way back from the beach. Super-fresh food and really good service! I definitely recommend this place.
