Unique environment; great drinks!

Loved how much personality there is in the decorations, tables and atmosphere, although not all of the seats were comfortable. We moved a few times until we found a good spot. We enjoyed some delicious coffee drinks. Would love to go back and try some food.

The iced banana coffee was my favorite drink I tried from Simon Says- it was really big and had big pieces of banana floating in it. Unfortunately the day I tried ordering food they didn't have everything they needed to make my dish so I only had their drinks. I would definitely go back to try the food and have... More

This place was a little ray of sunshine, we met the owners and they helped us out with sightseeing and we're just amazing people. Now for the food and smoothies- words can not explain - you have to try it for yourself. Me personally loved everything about this place from the food, the drinks, the friendliness, and definitely atmosphere. If... More

Great smoothies and great food. Looks like a hole-in-the-wall but it opens up into a very nice garden when you get inside. I ate here a couple of times and it was always a good meal. Great service too. And free wifi.

Mu spouse and I went here for breakfast our last day in San Juan del Sur. Their new garden seating area just opened a couple of weeks ago, and you could see the care and creativity that went into setting it up. The food was excellent, and the smoothie I ordered (Clockwork) was so tasty. My spouse liked his pineapple... More

Simon says is my favourite breakfast place in SJ! It has an amazing garden area, the perfect place to cozy up with a book and some coffee or even get some work done on their free wifi while indulging in a smoothie!

My only complaint about Simon says is that they are not open for dinner... I would eat here for every meal. Great menu... salads, sandwiches, home made bread and killer smoothies. On top of having amazing food, they also have a great staff. Every one is very kind and friendly, which is hard to come by in this part of... More

Best fresh juice, salad, smoothies and fries! Such a cute place to have a great lunch or even breakfast, a good way to beat the heat. Funky fun creative atmosphere in the heart of town.

This is a cute little restaurant that you should definitely try while you're in San Juan del Sur. Great variety of salads, sandwiches and smoothies. Everything we had was really good and fresh.
