Literally, I'm not joking. Great place to escape the heat of mid day with a smoothie so thick you need a spoon. Great breakfast too!

After a long surf session this little Cafe is close to the beach, and close to highway 34. Their prices are good and the food is home cooked. Great burgers fajitas chicken all delicious. But most of all I love the Mocoha Frio is certainly a treat. Very friendly service as well.

The smoothies and breakfasts are great at a reasonable price. Pico de gallo with eggs and pancakes are very good. Run by very nice local family. I would eat there every day if I could.

You will not find a better soda in the whole country! The food is amazing, huge breakfasts with many options, and the smoothies are the best I had in 1 month of travelling Costa Rica. Also incredibly cheap and run by a friendly family. Can't recommend it enough! If you're struggling to find it, it is on the road to... More

This Cafe is great. Good service, sometimes slow but only because of the amount of people that use it! The breakfasts are incredible, along with amazing smoothies and my favourite Mono Loco (banana, coffee and ice cream, warning this will add pounds to your waistline!!!) The staff are friendly and family orientated. There is internet. It isn't really cheap but... More

I have been to Cafe Ensueños every morning since I've been in Dominical and I am blown away every day. The food portions are fair and the quality is on point... And the service is friendly and quick! I definitely recommend coming here for any meal of the day.

I had breakfast here every day for a week. Very good food and friendly people. The brother of the owner has a fruit truck and not surprisingly all the fruit they serve here is very fresh.

Really nice family operation, very funky but authentic, and it tastes GREAT! Gallo Pinto was our preferred breakfast, but they also made this amazing choco-banana smoothie that had a wonderful mocha flavor. Once we discovered it that was where we ate. The dinners we also great and we ended up eating there for everything.

We have come to Dominical for 3 years now, and ensueno is definitely one of our most frequented and favorite spots. The food is wonderful and flavorful traditional food, with big servings. The family who owns and runs the place is so friendly and funny that it always makes for a pleasant time. Casados are at the top of the... More

The best coffee grown and managed by a WOMEN! In a place where you usually only find instant coffee, a nice cup of coffee with breakfast or lunch or a hearty, healthy and delicious smoothie... any combo of fruit for the same price!!! Worth every penny!! Located right behind Domilocos!!
