Recommended by our hostel. We thought it was expensive - as much of Costa Rica can be, however the quality did not match the price. Chicken sandwich tasted like it was from subway, and my wife's breakfast burrito, was basically all egg. Juices were on...More

Best cafe to grab a refreshing smoothie and catch up on some downtime reading (your book or theirs!). Environment is welcoming with its books, art decor and friendly people.
