We had breakfast here on our last day, and we were sorry we had been unable to eat here in prior days. The coffee was marvelous, and the breakfast quite good, all for a modest price. Can't wait to return.

Went to this great cafe with some family expecting some "street food" however I was greatly surprised to find the great food they would have! Their guacamole is to die for. I am definitely going to come here again!

From the food to the drinks. From the crossaint sandwich to the tenderloin with a coffee rub. From the mixed drinks to the milkshakes. A must when you are in the area.

We went for a late lunch today, and with 4 adults and 3 kids we tried a bunch of items. Two adults started our with the gazpacho soup, and liked it...even the 6 year old did, as well. I chose to get an appetizer and a salad instead of an actual meal. I ordered the patones (I think that's what... More

Get the grilled shrimp, coconut and rum sauce with mango rice - to diet for!! Loved the vibe of this restaurant, was reasonably priced and food was the best of the trip. If we had found it earlier we would have definitely gone back for more. Also has small gift shop with their own roasted coffee. Highly recommend!!

Pretty good breakfast, with some American options like French toast along with the tico breakfast. Small gift shop (expensive), seating in front near road our in the back garden. Most memorable was the coffee, which was great even by Costa Rica standards. They sell the Uno fresh roasted beans there for about 6000 colones, which we have been brewing all... More
