I love this little café for the great coffee, amazing hot chocolate fudge cake and cosy atmosphere. It is the perfect place to relax and read a book or admire the art on the walls. The staff is super friendly and they speak English too.

I was craving a mocha and happened to stop by this place and I'm glad I did. The coffee was reasonably priced and delicious, with plenty on offer. The staff were also lovely. They tried really hard with their English and were a delight.

I have nothing but good to say about this boutique style coffee shop. One of the best kept secrets when in Costa Rica. Tucked away in an area of San Jose which is simply lovely. The service is excellent and the owner makes you feel...More
