We serve espresso, tea, cold-pressed juices, smoothies & vegetarian bites for breakfast, lunch or dinner along with craft beers, ciders and wine. Some tasty, healthy treats...that are quick to grab and go. If you are not in a rush, stay a while and chill on the deck watching the river pass while surfing the internet. Pura vida.

This cafe has friendly attentive service and great food, from the Tico burrito to the Cajun chicken sandwich, the food was tasty and amazing. They also do vegan and non-dairy options too. The atmosphere is fun and the view is great.

Ample seating, very eclectic chill vibe. Great food with vegetarian and vegan options. Coffee and drinks are excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Outdoor benches by the river and ocean view. Parking is limited yet, we always can manage a spot.
