“Best breakfast in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were in Costa Rica for 10 days and we had the best breakfast here. The breakfast is just standard breakfast stuff - eggs, bread, pancakes that kind of stuff. But it was well done and the service was friendly and coffee was great.

“Early bird restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

One of the first in the morning to open right on the main strip. Features their $7 "Gallo Pinto" breakfast set with eggs, ham, toast, rice/beans and coffee. Great free wifi. Excellent service run by a Canadian ex-pat.

“Great start to the day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

Had breakfast every morning here during our visit and always left happy and ready to return. Enjoyed the fresh baked bread and fresh cut fruit. Mostly enjoyed getting to know about the area and some of the locals who had decided to make it their home - from Canada or Seattle or wherever.
Hope to return someday

“Friendly staff and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

This coffee shop is wonderful. I stopped there with friends more than a year ago. I was there with different friends on August 6, 2013. The very friendly waitress, Laurie, remembered me from my earlier visit. Hard to imagine when they must have thousands of visitors there. The food is great and the service is outstanding. Two of our group had breakfast and two of us had coffee and cinnamon rolls, which was outstanding. The other great thing about The Coffee Shop is that it is open early in the morning. They also have nice restrooms. I will be back in December!!!
