“Obsessed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

I went here every day of our stay for their coconut iced coffee (like a nutritious frappuccino), their delicious smoothies, incredible array of superfood breakfasts and to-die-for salads. Nicely tucked off the main drag, in a quiet yoga sanctuary. Awesome vegan, gluten-free options. I wanted to bring this place back to New York with me, but the bitter impossibilty of that inspired me to get a blender and start smoothifying myself!

“Breakfast and Yoga at Olams”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Came here one morning to meet a friend who was staying here, and got really hungry once I saw their breakfast menu. Had THE best oatmeal Ive ever had, and had a nice italian espresso with it too (good coffee is hard to get in ST). The prices were pretty fair for being such a fancy place! Loved it so much that I went back the next evening for a sunset yoga session (which I recommend everyone doing)

Made the time spent in Santa Teresa incredible and delicious! Every day I tried different menu items and loved them all. They also have incredible smoothies!

“Simply amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We were SO EXCITED to find this place. Best vegetarian food we had in Costa Rica, by far. Was so good we went back again the next day. Had the lentil burgers and the vegan omelet. The owner was so kind she even gave me the recipes! Also had smoothies, which were equally amazing. If you're looking for healthy, vegetarian-friendly food, this is the place to be. Shalom!

“fantastic owner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Not many places that remember you name after a first visit. First meal was sort of a miss, since they where out many items. We took that as a sign of there success and came back for world class smoothes. The one with cocoa was amazing.
