Amazing coffee and cheesecake!

Such a good find, came recommended by someone we met on the bus. We had all the different cheesecakes between us, all were so good but I think the passionfruit was the best. The coffee was lovely and a really chilled out cafe with helpful staff. Would come again.

We enjoyed twice lunch here, and a coffee break. Everything is just perfect, very tasty and nicely presented. Service is very good. And the place has the best bathroom in Costa Rica. Very cozy, almost worth a stop here.

We had three panini's, which tasted great, the salad garniture was really nice done. The traditional coffee was prepared on the table. It smelled and tasted excellent.

We followed the comments on Trip Advisor and were not disapointed by this restaurant, one of my favorite in Costa Rica. We went for lunch time and it was perfect, the chicken in musrhoom sauce was incredible ! On top of the food, the place is well decorated and the staff is very friendly.

We were a party of seven. The atmosphere was nice, however the quality of food we received was less than expected. I ordered a dish that was wheat-gluten free. However, when served, they put toast points on the plate. For a gluten intolerant person this can be disastrous. My daughter ordered a iced chai, and was served a coffee frappe.... More

GET THE CHOCOLATE CHEESECAKE. Oh my god this was incredible. We shared chocolate cheesecake and both got iced coffees (caramel & oreo) I can honestly say it was the nicest cheesecake I've ever tasted

This beautiful place is amazing. They have a wonderful menu, but we only had space left for cakes.... They were delicious! And the coffee and chocolate amazing! A must to go, when in Monteverde :-)
