Chilled out, great food and coffee

Stopped here for brunch. Best coffee I've found in Santa Teresa. Breakfasts burrito was very very tasty, as was the French toast. Chilled out vibe. Lovely staff. Highly recommended. Would not hesitate to go again !

We came here for breakfast one morning and became regulars during the week. Relaxed but good service and outstanding food. The Power Smoothie has a set of ingredients I couldn't imagine working but it was phenomenal. The baked goods, coffee and breakfast options we ate there were consistently good. A food highlight of the trip.

We stayed in the apartments (highly recommended) owned by Ginger Cafe and had breakfast here a few times. Their coffee is the best around and food is also good, offering dishes like french toast with bananas, huevos rancheros, egg croissants, and more. WiFi was average for the area.

Wonderfull breakfast. A traditional spot where many expats living in Santa stop by for a morning coffee. Loved the breakfast menu, the vibe of the staff and of everyone stopping by for a coffee.

I love the people that run the place and I love all the food they prepare. Prices are very reasonable. The homemade hot sauce that is served with the breakfast burrito is amazing. Any chance to get a dish with one of their homemade jams must be capitalized on.

Definitely a good spot for breakfast. They have omelettes and smoothies, pretty decent amount of things on the menu. Just check the times and days they're open; like many places in costa they close on random days or at random times.
