We love coming here for a fresh drink and some good sweet treats! The views of the river are great, the patio is covered so you’re cool and shaded. And Aaron is awesome! He even got us a taxi immediately when we needed it! His...hospitality when we arrived was awesome. Must stop by!More

Stopping into this cafe you think, hua......finally a decent cup of coffee and even a cookie that looks awesome. Then the vibe takes you in. The staff, the music and the food offerings that are obviously made with care and love. Then you are talking...to someone new and you forget the time. That's when you realize you have finally arrived in Costa Rica and you can just relax and let the experience take you. Thanks guys for helping me shed my city annexed.More

Mi novio y yo comímos aquí todos los días la semana pasada para el desayuno o el almuerzo. El es vegetariano y yo soy vegana, y podríamos encontrar múltiples opciones para comer y beber. Los chicos que trabajan allí son tan servicial y consistente. My...boyfriend and I ate here every day last week for breakfast or lunch. He is vegetarian and I'm vegan, and we could find many options to eat and drink! The guys that work there are so helpful and consistent!More

Great spot in Dominical for baked goods and coffee/tea in the morning and sandwiches during the day! You can grab a table or sit along the counter close to the river. Owner/manager and staff were particularly friendly and patient with everyone trying to decide what...to have as everything in the counter looked so good! Indio, in particular, was very friendly! Tip1: Try to sit at a table with an overhead fan as it can be very steamy! Tip 2: The red light on the outside of the bathroom door means it is occupied. No need to bang on the door. :)More

I was lucky to get a seat on a Wednesday late-morning. I liked the menu choices, the coffee, baked goods, breakfast and the river view. I also liked their own Mad Monkey hot sauce and bought a bottle for home.

We spent 5 days in Dominical and we went here every day! It has a great selection of so many different things to eat, good music, great view of the river and awesome employees. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to Dominical.

We ate here 3 times during our visit to the Dominical area after it was recommended to us. Loved the vegan options and delicious coffee!
