Star your morning with The Coffee shop

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.

really great little breakfast place, the homemade bread and cinnamon rolls are outstanding. Great American style breakfast (bacon & eggs). They have a good location, it's clean and the employees help get your days started on the right foot.

Great little place with attentive service. The cinnamon rolls, the iced coffee, and the breakfasts are delicious.The fruit salad with yogurt and granola is a healthy start for your day. Loved that it had Wi-Fi so I could catch up on my morning news and emails while enjoying my morning Java.

A friend & I started our day with home made breakfast at "The Coffee Shop" located next to the Mango Surf Shop in Jaco. All the wheat bread & pastries are made right here in "The Coffee Shop" owned by a Canadian. The nice smell of freshly baked bread & cinnamon rolls can be smelt from the sidewalk. The place... More

Brother and I stopped in for breakfast one day and lunch later that week. Sandra, sweet Canadian lady, makes her own delicious bread and does a great job with typical Tico fare or simple American breakfast. Service was friendly, personal, but not obtrusive. They remembered our names from our first visit to the second. Comfy, small, off the street but... More
