We had a great time, and the sandwiches were wonderful as was the spiced coffee. Highly recommended!

First of all, not really a coffee shop. It has an extensive menu with breakfast, lunch and dinner. Went there for breakfast, and it was really good! Fresh ingredients, great coffee and not too expensive. Waiter spoke english and was very professional.

I loved the attentive service and surprisingly good food. My sister called the Turkey Avocado sandwich the best sandwich she'd ever had. I really enjoyed the sweet Fruits de Bosque crepe - the blackberry and lemon were so fresh and amazing together. Really great atmosphere, quick wifi - highly recommended.

We had sandwiches and Turkish cappuccino, which I think was supposed to be like sahlep, both great! The desserts looked good, too. It is a pretty restaurant, and an easy walk in Santa Elena, though not in the middle of everything else. One of my favorite meals we had during our stay.

They care about the details here. I had a turkey pita w/ avocado, pesto and mozza. It was excellent. For dessert, we shared a passionfruit cheesecake. The cake itself was delicious and moist and would have been even better with just a touch more fruit. I would definitely go back. Service was great and restaurant was extraordinarily clean.

The food was fantastic! And the smoothies were sooooo good. I had one of the savoury crepes which had a lovely flavourful pesto and avocados. There were so many good options to choose from on the menu I felt spoilt for choice. I like the atmosphere and the hippy way in which the restaurant was decorated. This was my favourite... More

Came in one cool afternoon for some sandwiches and cold drinks. I had the pavo (turkey panini) and a vittorio, an iced coffee, whiskey, chocolate, and ice cream blend that was delicious. My wife had a frozen lemonade and caprice (mozzarella, basil, tomato panini). The food was excellent, service prompt and courteous, wifi was fast, and, as an unexpected bonus,... More

This is one of the best places to eat in town, as they are obviously committed to quality ingredients and great food. This is a couple minutes walk away from the Triangle (center of town) and abuts a private orchid garden and wildlife park. This is not a "meat & potatoes" American-style family place where you park your butt and... More

A couple we met recommended this place and we're so glad they did-the food we had was great (especially the chicken and spinach panini) and the cappuccino was the best I've had in Costa Rica. Not cheap but wifi is free and it smashes some of its local rivals out the water
