We come santa teresa frequently. This is one of our favorite spots, be it for an early coffee, an after surf brunch or a pre departure lunch. Great spot, fantastic food and terrific service.

We have been going here since Cafe Social opened. It has been superb since day one and continues to be consistently, what is it 3 yrs later. Whether breakfast or lunch there is wonderful food and homemade snacks to indulge in here. You can sit...inside or out. Andreas minds the register and he is a gem!! Stop in. You won't be disappointed. *This is on the north side of town and oh so nice and peaceful!More

Really enjoyed a casual lunch here. We had a smoothie, a salad, a pulled pork sandwich, and a piece of carrot cake. Would order everything again. Ingredients seemed really fresh and healthy.

While there are a lot of cafes in this area, we can say that this one is by far the best combination of food and service. Delicious variety of sandwiches, breakfasts, smoothies, and pastries, etc. The food is all made in house, with fresh local...quality ingredients, as much as possible. The coffee is excellent, community sourced beyond the usual Brit everyone serves (Costa Rican’s StarB of coffee) - taste some real Costa Rican coffee! Service is very attentive, and staff are a wealth of local information. Try it, you will make it part of your routine ;)More

Café Social was my go-to breakfast/lunch spot. My favorite part of the cafe was the manager, who always took my order. Andres said he could tell when I was walking up because it always smelled like Tutti Frutti (this was the smoothie I always drank)....He would also make great suggestions for things I should try or little tips like adding sriracha aioli to the tofu scramble. The architecture is modern and clean and the music playing in the background is #chillvibes. Some of the food I enjoyed was the Ready to Rumble (ask for a side of chipotle aioli), Go Nuts French Toast, Grilled Cheese Wrap, and the BLT-A.More
