I love espresso and I was mildly disappointed when it was sour. The black honey coffee was very good. Seemed to be a good coffee shop for working as several people were there working on their computers.

This has become my morning spot and I love it! Amazing options. Great staff. Cute little spot outside on the deck to sit. Cozy and I keep going back.

Was hoping to buy a few kilos of coffee here, but after not being acknowledged by the staff after 10 minutes, I left. A white couple came in after us and were very nicely attended to. Maybe it’s because I’m not gringo looking enough...? Disgusting.

I got coffee here twice and the experience was a little different each time. First time the coffee was excellent, and the second time coffee was okay. Also, I didn't bother to ask, but the to-go coffee seemed to be higher price than drinking coffee...there. Didn't understand why I kept getting charged in the 2000 range, when it said in the 1500 range for cappuccino on the board. Restroom was not the cleanest, and the baristas did not wear their masks properly. We are a year in the pandemic and the numbers are going up in Costa Rica, so at this point people should know that wearing a mask means over your nose as well.More

Requesting the management and the staff to please do something about keeping the coffee beans consistent and also cleaning the bathroom which has been getting filthier each time we visit. Toilet bowl is extremely stained and disgusting. Coffee beans taste different each time - sometimes...excellent, sometimes terrible to the point we have to return the coffee. New staff you've hired are great, esp the barista and the lovely argentinian girl who makes all the smoothie bowls. We come here regularly but really hoping to see some improvements. Thanks in advance.More

This year the service is as good as always, the flavor awesome, the crew amazing and the recommendations right to the point. I love sipping my coffee with something else to enjoy the tropical weather, the balcony is my favorite area at the coffee shop,...perfect for check some emails, finish a couple of calls and enjoy a tasty coffee.More

It is good looking place, with a nice terrace facing the street with a lot of movement. We order, a coffee, with a good taste, a chocolate banana shake very good, a breakfast beagle ( they need to improve the beagles ) and pancakes, those...were not good at all, so before order them ask if they improved the recipe. I gave them feedback !! In general, a nice place that needs to improve the food !More
