We absolutely LOVE this place! It's been an everyday thing for us since we've been here. The juices are fresh, the breakfast is delicious, and the place is absolutely charming!!! The owner and her staff are absolutely wonderful. This is definitely a must-visit!

This spot was right around the corner from my hostel! Relly good breakfast (the surfer slam and the burritos can keep you full all day). The art studio in the back was nice as well! They do take their time (but its Costa Rica so thats just the way)....so be aware not to try to be in a rush to... More

Breakfast burrito is tasty and filling, and the fruit salad served in a large goblet was a nice accompaniment...perfect for sharing. Our kids highly recommend the banana nutella crepes. Servers were friendly, and prices were reasonable. The art studio makes for... More

That's not to say they're not friendly, just not really eager. Once your food is ordered though, you're in for a treat. Many meals... More

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Great food at good prices, all cooked fresh to order. Their bookstore- a kind of bring and share bookshelf created by books tourists have left was great- found some super reads.

We had breakfast at zwart cafe, the menu is abundant, full of delicious stuff, the portions are okay, the service too, prices as everywhere in the town (about 20$ for two drinks, a burrito and fresh fruit with granola and yogurt). The owner is an artist, she paints right next to the cafe and her paintings are great! Loved them.... More

Awesome atmosphere, very light and airy decor and their chicken burrito is on point. There is also an "art gallery" attached to the restaurant (mostly paintings done by the owner) that adds a nice effect. Great place!

This cute little cafe offers a great ambiance and delicious food! The food and drink menu hits the spot for breakfast and lunch every time. The art studio and bookstore are a neat addition to the environment. Love it!
