Enjoyed the baked items, and very friendly staff (who isn't in Costa Rica!?!?). Wish I had gone back.

“Amazing smoothies, lovely breakfast place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My boyfriend and I arrived for breakfast at this small place and chose a table by the corner of the open balcony. I ordered a papaya smoothie in soy milk, and it was absolutely delicious. My boyfriend had a vegetarian omelet with large, fresh vegetables. I had a large pancake with chocolate and bananas. All of it was very good, as was the coffee. The owner, Luis, was very friendly and introduced us to his family.

Soon we were joined by group of about six blue birds that would inch closer and closer in order to "ask" for food. They were completely unafraid of humans, flying closely over our heads. It was very amusing to watch. Later a group of monkeys dropped by. Truly charming.

“Great friendly place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Great little establishment, very friendly owner. Right near the entrance of the main beach, great place for people watching without the amount of noise in the main street. As mentionned in the previous reviews, the baked goods are great, fresh and warm. Highly recommended for a nice lunch.
