A great little soda, right in the center of Uvita, but tucked away. One of our favorite places for a delicious breakfast! Lovely people and great food!

We have been to many soda’s, but this one is one of the best so far. Super fresh food, super nice staff. We really really enjoyed this little gem and we even went back a couple of times. You have to eat here if you’re...visiting Uvita!More

This is a traditional soda and the food is great! It was the current owners grandmothers place (I believe) or at least the recipes are from her. It looks to be in the carport of their home, but don’t let that stop you as the...food is delicious!More

A hidden gem. Right of the bitten track yet completely calm and cool. Dona Maria is wonderful! And her food is amazing. We went there for breakfast every day. Fed up with gallo pinto we tried other options. The sandwiches are a must. Dona Maria...with ham, cheese and scrambled eggs, tomato and lettuce! Forget any club sandwich you have ever had. This is pure perfection. The chicken sandwich is heaven. The fresh fruit juices, batidos are a kill. Enjoy!!!More

We loved the simplicity of the place. It was the typical soda experience. Dogs, rabbits and chickens running around. Locals were eating there which is always a good sign. The breakfast was very good.

Great Local Food. Best Breakfast in Costa Rica! We are so lucky as we stayed at Suenos de Maria for 3 nights. Each morning, we had our choice of amazing breakfasts... omelette w Gallo pinto, pancakes. We also thoroughly enjoyed dinner there if fresh soup...and casado. Locals come here for dinner too. Meals are prepared by the sweetest mother /daughter team. Gracias Mila!More

Six of us from the US and UK had lunch here and we were so impressed by the quality, freshness and value of the food. We all had some kind of fish dish; the fish was grilled, light and tasted wonderfully fresh! Don’t hesitate to...order the French fries (chips); they were amazing! Also tried the fresh fruit smoothies; the papaya ones were so very good! Highly recommended!More
