We're only sad that we only discovered this place 3 days before we left. Would have loved to have experienced more of their menu. Saying that, we still managed to fit in three meals here and loved every one. Lush.

This was the most unique place not only in Santa Teresa, but that we have EVER seen. We are from an average town in Utah and have never seen such gourmet sandwiches, burgers, smoothies etc. We were so excited to actually be in town for lunch and this place was first on our list of places to go. Our sandwiches... More

This place was fine, but compared to Ginger Cafe (which has a very similar menu) it is overpriced and a bit "too cool" for itself.

Do yourself a favor and get the Power of Cacao. But when you order it, really get into it. Say it with gusto. Trust me, it's worth it.

I am gluten/dairy free and enjoyed a gluten free pizza with goat cheese without a reaction. I can't tell you how great that felt! It's just icing on the cake that they use only the best ingredients found in Costa Rica. This will be one of my regular spots to eat. Thanks guys!

Having read all the great reviews and being vegan, my wife and I were excited to try Olam and take a break from the surf. Based on the reviews we had honestly expected to eat their everyday during our trip. Maybe we went on the wrong day but our first trip was our last. I am in two minds to... More

I was recommended to come here by a friend, and boy was he right. The thing that stood out most to me was the care and authenticity of the staff. The menu is rich with choices from smoothies to full on vegan/veggie mains...one of the best vegan/veggie restaurants I've ever eaten at. I did a 14 day juice fast led... More
