Robin's is a nice outdoor cafe with a menu that can accommodate many different dietary preferences. I had the veggie burger, and it was tasty. The outdoor seating area has a nice feel to it. I have not tried the ice cream, but it's supposed to be very good.

Ice cream is very so-so here. Go to Sekret Spot in Playa Pelada for authentic Italian gelato and skid the negative attitude of the owner.

Great flavors of ice-cream and special baked goods. Always a special treat to come here though prices similar to US. Birds hang out somewhat aggressively waiting for crumbs sometimes. Free wifi is always a nice perk. Wish there were more tables!

I ate breakfast here almost every day on my trip to Nosara/Playa Guiones. Everything I had was delicious - the huevos rancheros was my favorite, but I had the banana pancakes and the breakfast wrap. Fresh ingredients and very well prepared. I am a bit of a coffee snob, and their coffee is excellent, better than at Harmony Restaurant. They... More

Wonderful gluten-free and vegan treats. Great coffee! Fun atmosphere in this tiny cafe with barely room to stand in the shade while you order. Robin seems to be always there.

We stopped at Robin's for lunch today. There was a line up at the order counter and the wait for food was about 20 minutes, but it was well worth it. The chicken wrap was huge and packed with flavour. Loved the cilantro and all the other flavours. This place has a well deserved reputation!
