Jess, it was lovely to see you and we are so pleased you had a waffle on your last morning and loved it. You chose well, the 'nuts about chocolate' is a popular choice. Safe travels and thanks again for the review. Renae

If you are looking for great coffee and a good selection of waffles, this is the place. Good food, great people, and right on the beach.

Yummy for my tummy. !! The waffles we're super yummy. Large, flavorful, tasty. I got the monkey 🐒 waffle? Super yummy. Waffles on the beach, watching the ocean as you eat breakfast is nice. The employees were super helpful and nice.

The people were very nice and the waffles were tasty. A bit expensive, but we are getting used to the prices in Tamarindo. Love their logo and the location was right on the beach and in the cute downtown area.
