There is nothing like Costa Rica coffee. Sitting in the picturesque restaurant of Emilios Cafe, we enjoyed one of the best cups of java in Costa Rica... along with his delicious desserts, I highly recommend a breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a coffee and dessert. Beware, he is closed on Tuesdays.

Emilio's Cafe was conveniently located right around the corner from our villa at Villas El Parque. The moment we walked into Emilio's our jaws dropped! The view from Emilio's in one and only and the typical breakfast and crossaints were very tasty! We had to come back for more the very next day and this time were blown away by... More

Really relaxing place to have breakfast, lunch, or just a cup of coffee like we did this morning. What an amazing view, good staff and perfect quality coffee. Use Google maps to find it since it's not on the location that TripAdvisor provides.

We had lunch here, splitting a caprese sandwich. We weren't too hungry so it was the perfect size to share. However, after sitting and enjoying the view and the wifi for a bit, we ordered the almond cheesecake for dessert! Quiet, soothing, luxurious ambiance. Pricey, but no more so than other restaurants in this category, and most definitely worth the... More

Had a good breakfast here. The service is quick and friendly and the food is good. Their coffee is one of the best we had in Costa Rica and their cakes are worth trying.

We love Emilio's! Awesome coffee, amazing desserts, and the best chicken curry ever! We have gone back several times during our month long stay. The view is spectacular as well. Awesome place!

I had breakfast at this place. It was good. Perhaps they have more and better choices for lunch and dinner, I haven't tried. Staff is very nice and friendly. Restaurant has fantastic views. The only problem was the noise coming from the construction next door, which I am sure is temporary. So if there is construction going on next door,... More

We had lunch here one day. We had the turkey and cheese sandwiches and grilled vegetables. We shared the peanut butter pie with oreo crust which was delicious. The sandwiches were made using very tasty ciabatta bread. I noticed that at other restaurants in CR that bread is not usually served. At least good bread is not served. This ciabatta... More

This charming cafe-restaurant with an indie feel--graffiti prints and wood tables and breathtaking views--serves honest, very tasty gourmet health food. We got the sesame-crusted tuna and chicken brochette with grilled veggies, and this is the kind of savoury food with high quality ingredients I would serve at a home dinner party. The lunch menu looks awesome, with smoked salmon bagels,... More
