“Nice Little Place”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is a nice clean little place. Best coffee ever and good food for breakfast or lunch. A rather sterile atmosphere, but that's okay. They have AC, so when it's hot this is a good choice. One interesting little tidbit: there are little signs taped over the electrical outlets that inform you there is a charge for plugging in your computer or cell phone!

“Best Cup of Coffee in Costa Rica”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Roxy, the hard working girl who makes the coffee and sandwiches made me the best coffee I had in the whole country. So good I went there every morning we were in town. Sandwiches were all good, breakfast burrito plus a regular coffee for only $4 was a great deal, and the banana bread was to die for. Every morning Roxy greeted us with a smile, remembered what we had said we were going to do the day before and asked us how we enjoyed it. This hard working women with two jobs never failed to smile and be pleasant with every customer and personified the Tico "Pura Vida" philosophy of life. Thank you Roxy for a wonderful start to our day each time we went, I will miss you.

“Great Cafe! Try the Ginger Jolt!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Costa Rica isn't known for its yummy desserts, so if you're craving something sweet while in Tamarindo stop by Le Petit Cafe for some home baked brownies or key lime pie! The service was excellent, the sandwiches and desserts were fresh and they have A/C!! They also serve unique cold drinks called Refreshers; the Ginger Jolt was perfect to cool down after walking through town in the heat.

“Good Coffee and Atmosphere”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

It's where I would go if my internet were down and needed to get work done. The coffee is always amazing and the relaxed atmosphere made it easy to sit inside with my computer to get things done.
