“Great Coffee & Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We were tired of having breakfast at our resort so we decided to go into Jaco and try something in town. I had remembered seeing the name of 'The Coffee Shop' on some of the research I did before we sent to Costa Rica and we decided to go in for breakfast. The service was great and so was the atmosphere. We were seating hear the door so we could people watch, one of our favorite things to do. The coffee, as expected was great as was the food.

“Best breakfast in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars 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 stars 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 stars 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
