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.

Robin was great, and so was her food/coffee. Robin was very personable, even helping me get a cab to the airport. She trained in France, and it shows.

Who doesn't like ice cream right? I mean even if it's just "okay" ice cream, it's still ice cream. I happened to meander over to this cafe. Looked at my options, and tried the Basil gelato... 😳😱😀😄😁😛😛😛 Incredible... So I came back with friends and got it with he dark chocolate. It was like a basil Andes mint in my... More

Fabulous, consistent food offerings and lots of choices for vegan diet. Best ice cream in Guiones. Mayan chocolate and basil icecream is the best I've ever had.

Great food, great service & amazing atmosphere. Cants beat the scenery and hospitality. Also the homemade bread is very good. I had that with the chicken salad. Yum :)

Not a good place for ice cream unless you want it to taste all natural with no sugar at all. They do however serve some sushi, which I didn't try.
