Eating breakfast at this place or just grabbing something when walking by, this restaurant serves excellent brownies, banana bread and coconut bread. The smoothies are exotic and fine too. We once went there for dinner and it was alright. Nevertheless you should definitely stop by for the banana bread.

Lovely little bakery cafe with wild birds flying through all the time. Service is a little slow - the first time we went it took about 15 mins for them to bring the drinks over. The food is lovely though and there is a great range of stuff to choose from.

Ate there twice while in Montezuma. Had Rice and Shrimp as well as Garlic Fish. Don't be in a hurry as they cook food fresh and it is well worth the wait!

We visited for breakfast and each dish was perfect. Quick service from very friendly staff - A huge bowl of fresh fruit, yogurt, oats and almonds (Tropical Forest); French Toast; Gallo pinto were each excellent. Didn't try the pancakes but they look delicious. Nice vibe and relaxed atmosphere disturbed only by occasional loud bangs coming from the kitchen followed by... More

I ate here most mornings. The smoothies are amazing!!! I wanted them all day every day!! (There are two pages of choices in the menu!) I would usually get a smoothie and eggs - everything was really great including the waitress. She was very patient as we practiced our Spanish. :)

We had lunch here and really enjoyed it. Nice service. Located across from the school and next door to Hotel Luiz de Mono. A couple of blue jays hang out here.
