Pretty, cozy locale with fun seating arrangements- swinging chairs (but regular seating also available ).
This was our second time and we were not disappointed.
The beans are ground right before the coffee is brewed and the result is strong taste and brilliant aroma without the usual bitterness, heaven on earth for coffee lovers.
We tried the banana loaf- dense sweet, moist bread with a hint of cinnamon- a tasty healthy choice.
No doubt we will be back and we highly recommend this hidden gem near downtown Tamarindo.

I was on vacation in Costa Rica with my friend's family, and we came here for some coffee and a bite to eat. We each ordered a cappuccino, and they were simply to die for- very smooth and flavorful. We also had an order of the chips which came with guac, bean dip, and this PHENOMENAL chili pepper dip. To top it off, she gave us a slice of carrot cake on the house, that was the most flavorful and moist carrot cake I have ever had. I definitely recommend stopping here for some coffee and a bite to eat. The service was great and so was everything else! I will be back soon enough!

Really good fish tacos with big chunks of fish. Good guacamole and fresh, hot chips. It's a cute place where you can eat inside or outside. Some of the chairs outside are actually swings.

They day we had lunch here, it was too warm to sit outside on the swings, which looked fun. The a/c inside was cold and refreshing. The restaurant is kept spotless. The portions are not huge, but my tacos were really good and the house-made chips are delicious (from someone who's not a chip person). Another spot where the locals seem to eat. After reading the other reviews, I'm sorry now that we didn't try the desserts. No matter, I'm going again in December!
