Solid breakfast, cute venue, incredible smoothies

This is a cute little cafe with a very nice staff. Their passion fruit smoothies were probably the best smoothie I've ever had. Their frappe was "ehhh" but the rest of our breakfast was great. I would highly recommend checking this place out.

I had breakfast here on my last morning and wished I discovered it earlier. I had a quick breakfast before my boat to Jaco. Yummy Veggie omelettes with coffee. The best breakfast cafe in Montezuma for me!

A totally simple, laid back spot with good food and drinks. And if you don't check out their desert cases, you've missed one of the best parts of this place. It's a quiet, soft-spoken place when you visit Cabuya (which you must) and in need of a rest and a pit stop.

Visited this restaurant twice. Lunch was very slow. Three of us ordered take-out (sandwiches, salad) and it took one hour for it to be prepped, even though there were only 10 people in the restaurant. The food was very good, but this day excruciatingly slow. The sandwich was very sizable, came with fries and could have easily fed two people.... More

Stopped in for a late lunch....place was packed and shared a table with another couple. One guy waiting all the tables....he was swamped but did a good job. All food was very good, smoothies were also very good. Two lunches, drinks and tip were about $20. Would go again.

We had breakfast here the first morning we were in Montezuma. Service is good and the smoothies are terrific. They make a very good breakfast with reasonable prices.

Good coffee, fresh bread, homemade jam. Sounds like a winner to me. The gals here work very hard, but the service is a little slow.
