“great restaurant and bakery!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

This cute little place has good fresh baked breads, cakes, stuffed sandwiches and more! The sit down restaurant part is very good. We enjoyed every meal that we had there and the presentation is beautiful! It was our favorite breakfast destination (although dinner was also very good) in the village!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Really good food and nice spot. Very relaxed setting and some of the best pancakes I've had in my life.
Only downfall was the pace of service. I know that things in Costa Rica can be a little lax but this was beyond that. They serve table by table. 3 tables sat all at the same time. Whatever table sat first got all their drinks and food before the second or third table. Then the second table was served all of their drinks and food before we, the third table even got their drinks.
I don't mind waiting but we were the only ones with a child and he just wanted an apple juice. It took 50 minutes to get him the canned apple juice. But the food was good.

“This place is tops!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Wonderful setting, attentive service and the food ohhh the food sooo good! Try the chocolate cake and fruit smoothies! Eggs and bread! The town is lovely, my rental house was a five minute walk from here. Cabuya is very safe and the people some of the kindest I have ever met so not sure why another reviewer had the "unfriendly" reaction. Getting a taxi out of Cabuya at night is not realistic, plan before you go for transportation but honestly walking at night with a flash light is not a big deal. The animals are sleeping as are most of the locals! :)

“Food was great but staff unfriendly...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

After an exhausting day hiking the incredible Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve (4 hours, mostly uphill and about 15km) we decided to come here for dinner. We had chicken wraps, which were delicious, but we were so upset when they basically refused to phone a taxi for us. There are no street lights, no taxis, total middle-of-nowhere... so we had to walk home ANOTHER 6 KM in the pitch darkness all the way back to Montezuma. Luckily we had a flashlight, but seriously....In tropical places, this is not an unreasonable request. We even had to search to find someone so we could pay. They were not attentive at all. If you're going to eat here (it's really the only safe place to eat in that area), make sure your transportation is pre-arranged.

“Love the fruit drinks and the chocolate cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Good place for a stop over, the organic fruit drinks and coffee were pretty good! Went there about 3 times.
