This was our "local" for part of our stay in ST and we felt lucky. Great smoothies and coffee and pretty special French Toast :) Service and atmosphere spot on. Great cafe.

This was our favorite place for morning coffee and smoothies. We liked the vibe and the staff, and everything was fresh and delicious.

A decent breakfast place - I wouldn´t go out my way to eat there but it´s worth a try if you´re in the hoods. Food is good enough but service is a little arrogant until you get to know the staff and then it gets more pleasant….

Ginger cafe is a great little breakfast spot! The bread is so delicious! This is a perfect spot to stop and have a nice breakfast before hitting the beach! Pura Vida!

We stayed in the B&B behind this cafe, and ate here a number of times over the 5 day period. Great smoothies, tasty sandwiches on fresh buns, and coffee that still brings smiles to this caffeine addict. The host, Laura, was attentive, pleasant, and a wealth of information. All in all a great location for breakfast and lunch -- or... More

I think you should ignore the review below as it is actually standard of ALL costa rican restaurants to include tax and tip in their bill.

While staying in Santa Teresa I think we had breakfast here 6 out of 7 days on our trip. The servers are quick & friendly. All of the coffee drinks were very good. My favorite thing though, was the breakfast burrito. All the normal fixings along with refried beans, guacamole, & a tasty habanero sauce. A winner for sure!

Very friendly service and welcoming staff. Both times we have visited the cafe we simply had croissants, sandwiches and coffee. The lattes were the best we have had in Costa Rica so far. The croissant was good and the sandwiches plain but okay.
