Awesome waffles, which is what you would hope to get there. Love the Branding, they definitely did a good job at attracting people with the logo and designs. My wife had to get a mug and sticker too take home with us. Definitely would recommend...stopping here and taking your coffee to the beach to enjoy the view whilst you sip away.More

Our waffles were both delicious and we got an amazing view to go with it. I also recommend the banana shake! Only annoying thing was because we sat close to the beach, a lot of people came to try to sell us stuff while we...are eating. I imagine if you sit farther from the beach that they leave you alone. The food was AMAZING.More

Great beach side breakfast spot. Waffles and the variety of topics are great. Thankful, too, for the gluten free choice due to celiac. A side of scrambled eggs with cheese were melt in your mouth great. I can't ever get my eggs at home to...taste like that. But the best was the rapport with the owner. Super helpful, cleared a table for us, and shared some great Costa Rica advice. It has to be incredibly hard to get things back in gear after what the world has been through. We appreciated your 'keep on keeping on' attitude and wish you nothing but the best!More

We came here for breakfast as a family of four with two young kids. The kids really liked their waffles, I found them to be pretty nondescript! Seating is on the beach, first come first served.

What a fun place to have breakfast. The crew were super friendly and the waffles were THE BOMB!! Old School waffle, Waffle Monkey waffle, and a couple of coffees and we were happy as we could be. Even picked up a couple of souvenirs to...bring home for our friends. We enjoyed it so much, that we had breakfast there on our anniversary. A+++More

We visited Waffle Monkey for my husbands birthday with 14 of our friends and their staff went above and beyond our expectations! Everything was delicious and the view of the beach can't be beat!

We got the chocolate and cinnabun. Both were more than filling and they also served probably the best expresso that I had while I was there.
