Great place to hang out

The Drake Bay Cafe is a great place, with a nice view over the beach from the shaded veranda. Lots of different smoothies, other drinks and snacks, served by a very friendly and relaxed staff.

Sorry to leave such a low rating, but this cafe should not be listed as a 'Cafe' on Tripadvisor as ONLY residing hotel guests are welcome at this establishment. We trekked all across Drake bay to this cafe for breakfast on account of the good reviews posted. What a disappointment.

As the owner of Drake Bay Cafe, I have asked TripAdvisor to remove my Drake Bay Cafe profile multiple times without success. I am not sure what is going to take for them to remove this business. I am sorry about you having to walked so far to find out that we are not a public restaurant anymore. More

We had dinner here several times. First time, fish was excellent, dessert so-so. Second time, menu didn't change, and it as less impressive.

Hi Lynn. Thank you for visiting our restaurant! We actually have a wide variety of food options not found in Drake Bay, including vegan ice cream, unique deserts (Jungle Tart, Banana Bread with Chocolate, Tropical Carrot Cake), and chicken, shrimp, beef, and fish meals. Plus, we are always willing to cook something that we do not have on our menu.... More

Although it is not as cheap as most places in Drake Bay the service and quality is significantly higher. They have hands down the best coffee in drake bay as well.

A great setting on the edge of the forest. We ate fresh-caught shrimps and chicken. Both were tasty and good value.

Banana Smoothie with milk.... I promise, its the best! Staff was super friendly, and the location and view is beautiful! We stopped and had a smoothie every afternoon on our way back from our day adventures and the smoothie was perfect and refreshing after a hot day out in the sun!

We had a fabulous carrot cake, a tasty frappé and a refreshing watermelon juice. Not to forget the staff is really, really friendly and helpful plus you can enjoy a nice view at drake bay and have swim afterwards.
