We visited twice during our April 2014 visit to Jaco. Great coffee, good WiFi. Nice staff. Bought some beans too!

We stopped here one day while shopping. The food and the service was very good. We had appetizers and steaks for dinner which were delicious. Not the best Margaritas but the food was good.

Came here our last morning and wish we would have choose them from the start of our trip. The service was good and the food came out hot and quick. We enjoyed our meal and headed out to our final day. I recommend them over sunrise. Sean-N-Tori

Great café con leche. Ate breakfast here 3 times and tried pancakes, American breakfast and Tipico (fried egg, rice & beans, fresh fruit). Food and service were great.

We were told this place would have great authentic Costa Rican food, and we were not disappointed. The plantains were amazing, the beef and fish were delicious, and all of us loved what we ordered. We would come back again!

Small sidewalk café with good food. A favorite with tourists as you can dine while watching the many sites on the main drag.
