“Very yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

We didn't stay here, but we stopped on our way out of San Miguel for a coffee. We just had to since all their signs on the way in really intrigued us. It was delicious! I had a coconut milk latte, which was so yummy! I never eat cake, but I let Gwen twist my arm to try her homemade coconut cake that she made up off the top of her head. It was so good! My husband had a homemade cinnamon bun that he just loved. Cute spot too, looks really inviting. I hope to stay here one day!

Thanks so much for the nice review of Rhodeside! It is so much fun to be offering taste delights that people haven't had before, especially when they are made with ingredients found on the property!
Enjoyed meeting you both and we too hope to see you again sometime.

Edmund and Gwen have created a most restful and special roadside B and B. a stay includes a homemade breakfast and a selection of delicious native coffees. Their location brings in many daily travelers for Gwen's fresh made treats. Their grounds are generously planted with native flowering plants that provide color and shade. A new pool is shaded and visitors stay cool. We appreciated Gwen's extra touches with our illness.

Awesome hosts, amazing breakfast with different food every morning including cheese omelet, warm cinnamon bunds, home made jam, fruit, etc. and always including your choice of latte, cappucino or the type you want using the best quality coffee in Costa Rica.

Comfortable cabins with great view of the surrounding mountains from the terrasse an guests kitchen. Playa San Miguel is just few minutes away and it's a must on your visit to Costa Rica. Nicest beach I've seen even after visiting many countries. Rhodeside now has a very nice pool to refresh you after a day at the beach.

Great food with a personal touch! Lots of good info as well about what to do in the area. And we were able to ride horses after our meal and take in the amazing mountain views of Guanacaste. Thanks, Gwen and Edmundo! We will definitely be back !

While staying in the area of Playa De Coyote near the town of San Francisco, my husband and I were told about this wonderful espresso bar in Pueblo Nuevo. The Rhodeside Bed and Breakfast and Espresso Bar was not near by, so we were not sure we wanted to make the drive for a cup of coffee, but we are so glad we did. The coffee was unbelievable and the baked goods, "out of this world!" Gwen is truly a master at baking and brewing an amazing espresso. We enjoyed a fresh Coconut Cake and it was gluten free. I am not a big fan of gluten free baking, but Gwen has made a believer out of me. The cake was fluffy, moist and full of flavor, not heavy, tasteless and gritty textured like a lot of gluten free option! We also loved the cinnamon buns and grilled cheese sandwiches. I could go on and on about how wonderful the coffee was too, but I know you get the picture. Ed and Gwen were so friendly and took the time to sit down and chat for a while as well. THIS IS A MUST NOT MISS!!! The setting is beautiful, the food and coffee amazing and Ed and Gwen are the perfect hosts. We will definitely return!

its occurred to me i have not reviewed this place, even though i have visited dozens of times.....im not a big coffee drinker, but when i do, i come here.....part of it is the obvious care in selecting only the best coffees prepared in only the best machines available in the country.....still, most of the pleasure derived is from the company kept while relaxing there......my fiance and gwen retire to the kitchen to talk about baking....the things that come out of gwens oven are rich and tasty and second to none (sorry mom).....while they do their thing, im left to have deep meaningful and hysterical conversations with edmund, the resident lunatic fringe libertarian....its always a real treat, as edmund's well read perspective on the world is as unique as it comes.......lately some wonderful improvements have come about, with a new kitchen, new dining area, and a new pool added to the already idyllic setting.....gwen and ed and their business are truly an asset to this area....i say this as a client, a neighbor, a friend, AND a competitor.....kudos to this unique couple and their unique place.....pura vida

I stayed in the area for some days and came here everyday to have breakfast. You will get the best espresso in Guanacaste and they serve you daily something else, most of it homemade and very tasty. Nice and friendly people. Do not pass by. You will not regret to have stopped at this place.
