Just went there today to get some croissants and coffee. Too bad, I took it to go because it wasn’t with coming back and giving it all back. Seriously I never had a worse croissant in my life and probably the worse coffee in Costa...Rica so far!More

We eat more croissants and brownies when we're in Nosara than when we are home in the States -- why? Because Cafe Paris has such delicious treats coming out of the oven all day! If you're really lucky you just may get a hot croissant...-- eating one of those with one of their coffee or fresh juice drinks while next to the pool is simply magical. The food menu is delicious -- all the ingredients are fresh and cooked and presented perfectly. It's not cheap but the food is filling and the casual pool-side atmosphere with wifi allows people to linger and work or swim at their leisure -- or play a round of mini golf!More

The chocolate cake here is literally the best chocolate cake I have had anywhere in the world. It happens to be vegan but do not let this fact scare you away. You would never know. The balance of cake to frosting is perfection and it...is not overly sweet and definitely not bitter. How I wish I could take any entire cake home with me to the states. Also had the carrot cake which is equally good with the perfect ratio of cake to frosting and again just sweet enough. Coconut macaroon also yummy. The roasted cauliflower veggie sandwich with hummus and other veggies on their homemade sourdough is superb and great to take down to the beach. This is a must go to spot. Go early during your visit as you’ll want to go back again before you leave Nosara.More

Mango smoothie was to die for!! Loved the breakfast burrito and my friend is gluten free so was obsessed with the pastries and empanadas she could eat that were gluten free and delicious. Go to this spot for breakfast and gluten free pastry heaven!

Went for breakfast and ordered the almond croissant, which was surprisingly good considered I had subpar crepes at the other french restaurant down the road. It was big and buttery and had a perfectly flaky top with sweet almond paste filling inside.

We live mini golf! And this is one of our favorites! The use of the smaller space is amazing and the course is somewhat challenging. Coming back tomorrow!

I ordered a chocolate croissant from the bakery and took it next door to the restaurant to have a coffee and juice with it. The croissant itself was greasy and I found the chocolate used was too sweet. I ordered an iced latte and orange...juice at the restaurant. The orange juice was fresh squeezed and was quite good but the iced latte was not drinkable. They added cardamom to the iced latte and it was too sweet. Also, the lady that took my order was not very pleasant and it took a very long time to get the coffee and juice. Would not returnMore

Used to be great, then changed management, personnel, and menu. Now it is very poor, bad service, wifi doesn't work often, and expensive for a simple sandwich with nothing special about it, basically anyone can make at home. Asked them for a dish to go,...could see the chef moving the food with his bare hands into the container. Nothing special about this place or food. Bakery is good, still expensive, but the service makes me never want to come back, not worth it. Would not recommend, MANY more other amazing options in Nosara than paying for a simple sandwich and poor service.More

This place was the highlight of a wonderful weekend in Nosara. This was the meal we had before we left town and if we had gone to Café de Paris first we would have gone there again and again. The bread was so delicious! We...all got different sandwiches- our favorites were the tuna and the club. Clearly the new owners are taking care to make interesting new menus that are healthy and delicious. And the open air setting was relaxing and beautiful. The location is right in the middle of town- you can’t miss it and you shouldn’t miss it!More

Cafe Paris has been a favorite of ours since i started coming to Nosara almost 20 years ago. Now since new ownership has taken place it’s better than it’s ever been. Derek the owner who also owns and operates Organico Grocery has changed the menu...up to suit all including Vegan and a variety of vegetarian options. I eat here with my family regular and absolutely love it. The sandwich options are on point, a perfect satisfying lunch. The staff at Cafe Paris are extremly helpful and friendly, as well as delivering great service. We really enjoy this spot, highly recommend it.More

We were there on a rainy Saturday morning and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast. I loved my muesli-type fruit bowl, the coffee was strong and good and the croissants were delicious! Definitely a must when we come back to Nosara.
