I saw the Zion Cafe from the coach arriving from San Jose, I am grateful that this tiny cafe caught my eye as it gave more than a yummy breakfast. There is a good choice of freshly made juices and healthy breakfast, all worth a try. On my first stay, Michelle (manager) was my waiter. I immediately asked if she... More

We stopped in here for breakfast one morning. Having just arrived in Costa Rica, we thought we'd try the famous gallo pinto. I also got a banana and coconut milk smoothie. When the food arrived, it was well presented and absolutely delicious. Full of flavour and filling. We tried gallo pintos elsewhere but they just did not compare. My smoothie... More

My friend and I saw this cute little cafe in the haze of rain and we are so glad we did. The first day we had the jerk chicken wrap and pita and not only were they delicious but the sauces that they came with were to die for. The second day we ordered the jerk chicken plate which was... More

I absolutely loved this place. There are loads of delicious sounding vegetarian options and also jerk chicken for the carnivores. I had the veggie burger, it was just soo good. Loads of salad, nice sauce, great burger. The jerk chicken my boyfriend had was delicious too. And the smoothies! If this place was in my area back home I'd definitely... More

I would highly recommend this restaurant. Not only is the food delicious (try the limon kiss smoothie it's amazing), but it also helps support 5 Costa Rican families. It is run by a Canadian couple who decided to give up their corporate life to move to Puerto Rioja where they go above and beyond to give back to the community.... More

Things I would make at home, so a touch of the familiar here. The things that bothered me were the dirt that blew on me and my food everytime a car went past and the incessant flies trying to drink my watermelon juice! Pretty good- i will sit further from the street next time though. Really close to the shore... More

Perfect sidewalk cafe with reggae wafting in the breeze as you sink your teeth into a warm buttery johnny cake smeared up with cream cheese. We wandered up on Zion and thoroughly enjoyed the service and the food and the sweet kitty, Princesa...

The food was delicious, the service lovely. @ marco: to split the bill is actually not normal in CR. To give such a bad rating just because of that is exaggerated and unfair. We would turn back anytime.

Great cafe that we stumbled across. Everything about this cafe stands for quality-it was the only place where I didn't feel weary about the lettuce or chicken. Food tasted really good as well. The owner was super helpful and gave great tips on places to see and eat that are more "authentic Costa Rican". Highly recommended for anyone visiting puerto... More
