I pop in to get little treats when I am in town. Everything is tasty and I recommend it to anyone. I did have a small lunch one time and it was good. I think they have started expanding their menu, I will be back.

This is a little cafe at the back of a small grocery store. They have some fabulous savory options both with and without meat. I particularly enjoyed their surfer's breakfast combo of a brakfast burrito and smoothie. Yum! Check it out for sure!

I love this hidden gem in Nosara.... Zen Cafe is owned and operated by Joanne from Montreal. Her Canadian friendliness, charm and Costa Rican experience adds up to loads of good advice as well as tasty, well priced food. This place makes the greatest juices, smoothies around. The atmosphere in the store/cafe is laid back and homey... The Zen Cafe... More

They moved the Zen Cafe to the front of the Organico Market on the main road and it has kinda a wierd, not cozy vibe, but the food is good. Hit and miss on the wraps. Prices are reasonable.

Had the pleasure of stopping in twice during my recent visit to Playa Guiones. The owner could not be more gracious, the coffee more delicious......and the oatmeal cookies? Insanely delicious. One must not miss this delight when in Nosara/Guiones!!!!

The Zen Cafe is a MUST stop in Nosara. Whether you are driving through or staying for a few months, do stop in for the BEST organic shade grown coffee around. Joanne's food is off the charts too. Good vegan selection. Try the chicken curry wrap or one of her fresh cookies! Yum! This is a great local spot where... More
