We went for breakfast 2 days in a row, and will be back to try other meals as well! The view is breathtaking, and you can enjoy a great breakfast while sitting on a stool and taking in the sights down the mountain.

This restaurant is on the left hand side of highway 3 after you leave Atenas. It's at the top of a beautiful valley and the view of the rolling hills, mountains, and on a clear day the Pacific, are beautiful. Make sure you sit at the counter facing the view. I always find it very relaxing.
The food is good and they have excellent specialty coffees if you feel like treating yourself. The prices are very reasonable. Make sure you stop, even if it's for a drink. It will be worth it.

We stopped here on our way from one city to the next. The fajitas and tamales were great! I recommend the cafe frio.

We had a wonderful lunch here with Shelly Goettl, our home owner and real estate agent. Beautiful view, good food, wonderful company. All 4 of us ate with iced coffee and milkshakes for $24!

Food is standard Tico, done well. The view is breathtaking. Need I say more? Yes, to meet the 50 character minimum. Now go try it.
