Simple food: paninis, crepes, salads, smoothies. All together with nice desserts. Top it with nice amicable service and a locally inspired decor. Great place for good comfort food. Good for families. Reasonably priced. Enjoy!!!

Really recommend this place. We were looking for something gluten free in monte verde and this was just what we were looking for. Tasty gluten free pancakes, everything we took was really good- the regular pancakes, soup, salad. All great. Plus the service was good , very nice place.

I stopped in here on a walk into town. It looked nice and clean with a good selection. It fitted all that. My visit was 1130 so well before lunch and my desire was a smoothie. I'd been zip lining that morning and was in need of a drink. And also thinking of coming back for lunch on my way... More

They have so amazing food there..... Start with the curry pancake... It's mind blowing and then just get one of the wonderful cakes.... You won't eat one only :-) We also got great cappuccinos, with very beautiful "paintings". The barista was amazing. He made a kissing couple in the milk! These guys a very passionate about what they do.... Thanks!
