The food was fantastic. Right on the beach so you can eat and watch the water. Reasonably priced. We went here after walking around downtown because of the name, we would eat here again because of the food.

We love waffle monkey!! We went to waffle monkey 2 years ago when we first came to Costa Rica and we knew we had to come back and see them!! Our favorite things to get are their delicious milkshakes!! We’ve been there twice in the...4 days we’ve been in town! The staff is wonderful and friendly!! We are so thankful for their great services during this incredibly uncertain time with the coronavirusMore

With tables on the beach near the water and early opening hours Waffle Monkey is an fun choice for breakfast and coffee, even iced coffee. Check them out!! Had to buy a souvenir shirt even.

Omg. We’ve been in Tamarindo 6 days and I’ve had 3 waffles already! Delicious. Simple concept that delivers something for everyone! Sweet, savory, whatever you’re feeling like! The ham & cheese with rosemary is incredible. Most come with egg & protein but they are also...available to order as add ons. Gluten free options also available.More

Great coffee!! Loved the fresh fruit options. The main guy from Brazil was especially friendly and attentive. We stayed in a nearby apartment for a week and he was always helping my 10-year-old order, making change for us or just saying, "Hola!" Only downsize was...it was moy costosa (very expensive) compared to typical Costa Rican prices. We will definitely be back to this special spot next winter!More

I got the apple pie waffle and my husband got the waffle monkey and both were very delicious!! I love ice cream so...I enjoyed a peanut butter milkshake..it was so tasty and perfect on a hot day!
