I was looking for a good solid breakfast and I found it here. Good service and excellent food. Everything was hot and cooked to order. The toast was excellent and with the tasty jam, it was surprisingly enjoyable. Not a typical CR breakfast but it hit the spot. Great service.

Sandra, a transplant from Canada has hit a home run with this out of the way cafe. Opened in 2000 and still cooking a tasty breakfast. My wife and I split the egg, bacon, and cheese breakfast sandwich, a glass of oj, and two coffees for 14 dollars tip and tax included. A previous visit included the cinnamon roll, which... More

Stopped in one morning for a quick breakfast. Real good, quick service and great home made bread. Worth a try for breakfast or lunch.

After a lackluster breakfast menu at our resort my wife and I were looking for a better option and we found it here! Fresh, quick and delicious!

I have come to the Coffee Shop for 6 years or so, when I find myself in Jaco. I always get the veggie omelet and can honestly say it is always spot on. I can depend on the food here, as well as the friendly and good service. Everyone gets fed well here and is always happy.

I actually made an account on here, which I swore I would never do, just for Sandra. Such a lovely woman, with a passion for amazing food, with great stories to tell. Thank you for everything! PS don't leave without a cinnamon bun

Great service, incredible homemade bread and the veggie omelet was fantastic. Kids enjoyed the pancakes. Closed on Sunday. Well worth waiting until Monday

The Coffee Shop is very clean and has a relaxed feeling. They had Jack Johnson music playing. The typical breakfast was spot on. We sat inside and they had A/C and outside seating looked inviting as well. Probably the cleanest bathroom in town. Service with a smile and on top of filling the coffee cups. I definitely will be back.
