“Best fresh lunch and dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

First time visiting Costa Rica. I'm a vegetarian and wanted fresh veggies. First visit I had a smoothie, oh sooo delicious, second visit my husband had the chicken sandwich and I had the veggie wrap, yum yum and yum. Can't stay away from this place. Today is our 25th wedding anniversary and I wanted a special breakfast, well you guessed it...can't get any special than Sprouts Banana pancakes and a veggie omelet. You can't leave this area without visiting this place for breakfast or lunch. We will be here a few more days, but will not leave before trying dinner. Thanks Mike for a job well done.

“Great place for Breakfast and Lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

We ate at Sprout a total of three times in two days! We stopped in for breakfast and my kids loved the waffles on a stick and my husband had a great omelette and I had a wonderful breakfast sandwich on a croissant. We were so enthralled with the service and knowledge of Mike and his staff that we decided we would go back again, but for lunch! Well, everything was great once again and we again had terrific service, nice conversation and terrific food! Love the smoothies! Back again for breakfast he next day and everyone had something different and again everything was great! I cannot recommend Sprout enough if you are in the Tamarindo area. We traveled in from the JW Marriott at Hacienda Panilla everyday because the breakfast at Sprout was way better than the enormously expensive breakfast at the JW!

“A Good Salad Is Hard to Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

There are few restaurants that serve meal-size gorgeous salads like they do at Sprout. My fav is the Sprout salad hold the chicken and cheese, add whole almonds. Mike is always accommodating! My kids love the chicken lolly pops for lunch and waffles on a stick for breakfast (what is it with boys and sticks??).

Can't recommend this place enough for a healthy and hearty lunch. Oh, and have the Green Day smoothie - delicious!
