Robin's food is amazing. The thai wraps are best thing I've tasted EVER. The lady who works the counter most days, is very sweet. She wrote the recipe down for me. The atmosphere is casual and friendly. This is a really nice little cafe for health conscience eaters.

We had the best coffee and chocolate homemade ice cream in this attractive little outdoor shop. Service was cordial and ice cream the best!

We stopped here on our way to Playa Guiones for breakfast, and it was amazing food. Great coffee. They even have vegan / gluten free options. We liked it so much that we came back for ice cream in the afternoon. It is a "must visit" place if you're headed to Playa Guiones

This is a wonderful lunch spot with consistently delicious breakfast and lunch items. I've never been disappointed and always being my friends when they are in town to eat at this lunch spot. Try the basil icecream!

I was so happy when Robin's opened years ago. You could grab a sandwich to go to the beach or just sit and enjoy some fresh made iced desserts. When mango's are in season you have to have her mango gelatto. She does a mozzarella, tomato, basil sandwich that is so fresh and amazing. I love this place as do... More

Robin's had something for all of us. Vegan, Gluten-free, Local, Fresh, Organic. Yes. BLTs? Yup. Ice cream. Absolutely. We found a reason to stop by here just about every day - sometimes just to pick up some gluten-free banana coconut bread, sometimes for ice cream, and other times for the delicious veggie maki rolls and pad thai spring rolls.

Worth finding Robin's for home-made ice cream. Good selection of flavors. Had the Mayan chocolate - wanted another right away. Robin's serves other foods as well, but did not sample any.

The food is close to the best we'd tasted in Nosara. You can get vegan and raw food and it's all made freshly and well prepared. But we were disappointed over the service. The staff is not very welcoming.

Been here a few times, only ever had the ice cream but it is amazing! Lots of flavors to choose from and on a hot day in Nosara nothing beats a delicious ice cream.
