Good option in Tamarindo for breakfast or just having a coffee. In my quick stay here it was a really good deal. A must go!

My husband and I ate breakfast here 5 of the days that we were here. Very good iced coffee! The sandwiches are great as well. My favorite is the yogurt with fruit and granola!

Lots of reviews so I will keep it simple - the breakfast sandwiches are simply wonderful! House baked buns topped with eggs, cheese, and your choice of meat (bacon, sausage, or ham). Be sure to ask for the house salsa. N*Joy...
