Great breakfast

Small place with great food, great service. The toast (yes the toast) is amazing. Had breakfast here multiple times while we were in Jaco.

Just saw this tiny place hidden and got an urgent need for coffee, so went in. Best bread (homemade) I have tasted in my three times in Costa Rica, and such lovely people running it. Clean and proper and also nice bathroom. Big, icy and cold ice coffee. Definitely a place worth visiting.

Just went for a coke and then decided to have a sandwich, which was tasty but overpriced. Waitress was fairly friendly. We were the only paying people there although there was what seemed to be a homeless bloke sitting at the table next to us!

Used to work across the street and they had very little traffic so the food probably isn't that fresh, had a muffin one time and wasn't awesome. Good coffee though

Had breakfast for two with a very delicious granola w jogurt and different kinds of fresh fruit, omelett with homemade toast and two coffee (free refill) for 30$. Considering that you are in Central America this is quite expensive. If you are tired of gallo pinto for breakfast this is a good choice if you don't mind the money.

My breakfast spot, we ate here for breakfast about 3 times. The food and service were good. I had the traditional Costa Rican breakfast every-time. It's located right in the middle of town. Don't miss out on this little spot.
