The first thing I want to make clear is that there are 2 branches of this cafe. One in Santa Helena and one in the Sky Adventure complex. It was this latter one we went to and would suggest no one buys there. Our food was not good but was edible, so we did better than many others. But to... More

Had some "take-away" sandwiches ... panninis actually. Not impressed by either the bread or the filling (I had a ham and cheese). The service was friendly. Also purchased some chocolate chip cookies which turned into the best part of the meal.

Food and atmosphere was amazing. Had eggs benedict & the chicken panini. The cilantro mayo on the panini was a really nice touch!

Centrally located in La Fortuna town, this is a quaint cafe/restaurant with good food. Local dishes as well as the standard (tasty) burgers too, it will suit everyone. Friendly staff and good prices

We enjoyed cheesecakes and smoothies, the cheesecakes were good and the smoothies OK, but not exceptional. The place was clean and they staff friendly, but it was more pricey than other places localy.

We ate at this restaurant three times while in Monteverde/Santa Elena. We had paninis, soup, smoothies, chai latte and dessert. We were never disappointed because the service and servers were wonderful to us. We enjoyed the paninis which were on house made bread served with a generous green salad which was always fresh. The chai latte was the best I've... More
