Coffee is outstanding. We were very happy with our breakfasts as well. My eggs were delicious but I had seriously envy for my friend's omelette which was done to perfection! Will return

The iced coffee is AMAZING: fresh delicious espresso shaken with some ice cubes to produce the foamiest, coldest, most richly coffee-tasting froth. Pasta is delicious. Relaxed, warm vibe.

Had a great vegetarian panini here. It was delicious. The staff are very friendly and kind. They had brownies and Nutella croissants which looked amazing!

So you fancy pancakes, you see pancakes on the menu. Great. Decision made. After a short wait out your food arrives. One pancake! One pancake does not pancakes make. The coffee was good but the food portions were far too small.

We stayed in SJDS for a few days and quickly spotted this cafe as a gem for the quality of its service and food/drinks, the reasonableness of its prices, and the fact that it had good lighting and WIFI, something we appreciated when wanting to read and check emails in the evening...

The best brownies and coffee in town! Very friendly staff too. A favorite! Very nice breakfasts too, we still need to try their pasta and sandwiches but I am sure we will like it!

I think this place has the best coffee in town. I haven't had brewed coffee here but the espresso based drinks (i.e. Americano) are delicious. Note the are closed on Mondays.

We went for breakfast as we saw the sign "Homemade croissants with Nutella" and we weren't disappointed! We also tried their smoothies, coffee (amazing), and fruit mix and we were delighted, everything was fresh and delicious! We were so happy we came back there on the same day for dinner and had pasta and salad. Very good service and value... More

Decent variety of menu options. Pasta cooked well to al dente with simple but flavourful sauce. One of the better coffees I've had in the area. A little expensive by Nica standards but in line with the area. Small place (4 tables) with good food, but not sure if I would wait for a table.

Hours are 9am to 6pm (CASH ONLY), so we came here for an early pasta dinner one night. We had the carbonara and puntnesca, both absolutely divine. The owner/chef is from Catania, Italy, and he knows what's up. Dinner was so good (and crazy affordable) that we stopped by the next morning on our way out of town to grab... More
