We had an excellent lunch of fish tacos. The quesadillas are also good, and they offer a wide variety of coffee drinks.

Since our last visit to Manual Antonio they have made improvement to the back patio. Now it has a cover and fans, this is a great improvement especially on the hottest days. We have had dinner here and it was very good, but what I think is excellent are the fish tacos at lunchtime. Even though we have had other... More

Our family of 6 adults stated our first day with breakfast here. It was a terrific experience. Excellent food and service and an atmosphere to remind us we were in the tropics. Worth purchasing some packages of their coffee to take with you!

Stopped in for dessert when a recommended restaurant down the street was annoyed that we didn't want dinner - just dessert. This place was very welcoming. Atmosphere so charming we are going back for dinner tomorrow night - our last night here in Costa Rica!

Fantastic, fresh fish tacos for the adults and creamy, rich shakes for the kids. They were exceptionally accommodating for the picky eater in our crew. The owner stopped by to greet us and shared that she's been here operating the restaurant for more than 20 years. 'It's all made with love'....which you could taste in every bite!!

I have visited this Café many times during my visits to Manuel Antonio. In the past I ate breakfast and lunch only. In March 2015 we ate dinner at the Café. We sat on the outside deck at the back of the Restaurant and lovely surroundings, good food, reasonable prices.

A great spot for a cup of coffee and breakfast or lunch. Local food with great flavor and my favorite cup of coffee in Costa Rica. There is indoor and outdoor seating (both in front and in the garden out back). The only restaurant we went to twice during our time in Manuel Antonio!

Came here with husband and 2 kids for breakfast. Good coffee, good breakfast. Had macadamia and banana pancakes..delicious. Came again for lunch, pretty large portions..quesadillas are huge and delicious. Fish sandwich was good as were the yucca fries. Fish wrap was just ok. I dont think there is a bad table in the place.
