Wonderfull breakfast. A traditional spot where many expats living in Santa stop by for a morning coffee. Loved the breakfast menu, the vibe of the staff and of everyone stopping by for a coffee.

I love the people that run the place and I love all the food they prepare. Prices are very reasonable. The homemade hot sauce that is served with the breakfast burrito is amazing. Any chance to get a dish with one of their homemade jams must be capitalized on.

Definitely a good spot for breakfast. They have omelettes and smoothies, pretty decent amount of things on the menu. Just check the times and days they're open; like many places in costa they close on random days or at random times.

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.

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….

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
