“Great coffee, great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on our way out of Manuel Antonio. There was a soccer game earlier so they had not yet opened when we arrived. Even still, they allowed us to come in early. We ordered a peanut butter banana blended coffee drink and an espresso shake. Both were amazing! We also split a chicken quesadilla which was plenty big for the two of us. Fresh guacamole and salsa made the dish even better! Service was friendly and accommodating. We will be back next time we are in MA.

“Tasty Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Had dinner here with my girlfriend ... we were both satisfied. I had a steak seasoned with a dry coffee rub and it was really good. We also had a few drinks and a banana split for dessert. A bit pricey but its so hard to find a bargain in Quepos and Manuel Antonio prices are pretty high all around. Just some more so than others. Didn't get a chance to try there coffee but that coffee rub on the steak was muah magnifique.

“Pricey and small portions”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

Went there for breakfast as it was suppose to be great. Food was just okay as well as service. Not sure why it was so highly recommended. Pricey for the food served and small portions. Will not recommend.

“Food was delicious and nice live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We went for dinner and while the menu for dinner is limited, everything we ordered was very good. I highly tevommend the grilled veggies with quinoa and tje avocado salad. If anyone in your party needs gluten free or vegan, this is the place to go! I hope I have time to go back for breskfast!

“Great find for breakfast and dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Stopped by while walking in town last week during our visit. Boys had crepes - yum. Banana cake/bread was amazing - we even had to go back for more for our last day! Hubbie had traditional tiki breakfast. Empty plates all around. For dinner boys ordered from the kids menu but wanted to sub chicken for fish with no problem. Hubbie had fresh fish. Great place, nice vibe, there in evening with music as well. Friendly staff and worth a visit while in the area.
