Could have eaten here several more times before exhausting the possibilities- fresh, delicious, creative food and beverages. Also, it's Tico owned, from what I hear, so that is a plus!

Robin is super friendly and has a many vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options. She carries really good ginger beer. The outdoor seating is pleasant, just watch out for hungry birds eyeing your meal! Not too far from the beach and the highway.

I visited this little café a few times during my stay at Playa Guiones, I didn't sample the food here but the ice cream was so nice and the organic natural drinks worked wonders on my hangover!

I ate at Robin's several times during my 6 day stay in Nosara. The staff was friendly and I was able to chat with Robin, who was very kind and helpful. The food was delicious. I had no trouble at all finding delicious, healthy vegetarian food. The only problem I had was deciding on what to order--there were many options... More

Robin's is pretty far from being a hidden gem in Nosara. Centrally located and frequented by short term visitors and long-term residents alike, Robin's is more like a foundational establishment in Guiones. However, it is has this prestige for a reason. Many reasons, actually, as it is much, much more than just an ice cream place. Robin serves up GREAT... More

Good coffee and great homemade ice cream...nice place to sit in the shade and kick back. Robin, the owner, is from the US but has lived in the Nosara area quite a while now. We came back here numerous times.

The owner Robin is often around to greet guests as a start to this scrumptious experience. The ice cream is made in-house as are some of the breads, smoothies, etc and everything is made to order. There are many options for gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan patrons. It is not a cheap meal but your paying for the fresh, exquisite ingredients... More

This spot really captures the laided back vibe at Nosara and we enjoyed stopping into Robins for a quick coffee in the mornings. Also a nice spot for ice cream in the afternoons!

I went here almost every day for a scoop of homemade deliciousness in very different flavors! Robin's also serves lunch and is located on the main Nosara shopping road.
