Delicious veggie and vegan cafe, great for gluten free food

This was a fantastic find. The menu had a great range of choice and to have such ease ordering gluten free food was such a treat. They also had various dairy free milk alternatives and delicious smoothies.

We are 6 and had lunch here. Very beautifully decorated, simple chic. The food was absolutely great. Fresh, high quality organic ingredients. 3 of us are vegeterian and 3 of us are not and we all enjoyed it a lot. Everything is reasonably priced! Absolutely the nicest, refreshing restaurant in puerto viejo!

Located between Punta Uva and Puerto Viejo, this road side Soda had very good quality food. There's a resident Sloth in a tree on the property that many people stopped to take photos of. Very fresh food and tasty.

We found this place while riding our hotel accommodated bikes, and fell in love.

Great environment, even better food. The owner clearly loves this restaurant and the food is so flood it's like it's made with love. Great music great seating. Try the ginger lemonade and the Caribbean plate. No meat used in any of the cooking just good old fashion organic and local food, can't ask for more than that. Enjoy!

The food here is pure. And it's purely good! I didn't care for the pancakes, but the gallo pinto with veggies was good. The Caribbean plate for lunch was also tasty.

Fantastic food - many vegetarian/vegan options. The avocado sandwich was great but it was way too much food. Definitely for two people! The smoothies were so good!

Just ate here for dinner, had the special - Rice and Beans. Not only was the food exceptional, but the staff were super friendly, the music was choice classic rock, and the owner shared some local Kombucha with us. Will definitely be checking it out for breakfast!

Flora has a creative menu that appeals to the health conscious. Food is colorful, fresh each day and so appealing to the palate. A refreshing change to the same.
