I spent 2 days in San Juan del sur and ate 3 times there. Good fresh plant-based food. The owner Matteo is a vegan chef from California and the menu is great: modern and local. I highly recommend this place.

I enjoyed the pineapple, coconut, turmeric smoothie and the vegan rice paper rolls with peanut sauce. OMG, such fresh good food at this place next to the Zen Yoga studio, where they also offer fantastic massages for $40-$45.

Thank you for the kind review Sandra. I'm glad you enjoyed the chia bowl. You should have received free homemade coconut milk with your coffee. We only charge extra for homemade almond milk, as the almonds are expensive. Thanks and hope you join us again...More

Everything is delicious, and made to order, The upside is that it is incredibly fresh and delicious. The catch to that is that you should expect to make it a good relaxing visit, not a rushed one. At first, I was a little put off...More

Excellent food, very fresh and full of flavour. The owner/chef, Airee, does a lot for the community and is a wealth of information on the area. Highly recommend coming here if you’d like to have healthy food served with a smile
