A celebration of all things cake! Cupcakes, chocolate cakes, fruit cake, brownies and traybakes.
The workers are friendly enough, and it.s also a good spot to chill out.early in the morning , afternoon or waiting for the sunset, also the coffee menu was fantastic.

During a lovely visit to Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica, we stayed at the el Baile de la Iguana. Emilio's Cafe was a short walk from our lodging. We ate at the Cafe for several meals, as it was so good and beautifully presented. I especially loved that the lovely server made our coffee right before our eyes, in what I have called, "The Coffee Ceremony". I have never drank my coffee black before, however, I found that I didn't have to add cream to cover up the bitterness. We ate traditional local food and it was the best! We embraced the culture through the food, the language (I am on a steep learning curve) and the pace of life. We sat out on the deck overlooking the foliage and saw iguanas on several occasions. We enjoyed not being rushed and savoring the moments. The food was really good, the service was really good and the relaxed environment was very much appreciated. I would definitely return to this special cafe.

This is a nice little coffee shop/café with excellent sandwiches and deserts. Nice view into the locals neighborhood in Quepos. A sloth was in the trees right behind the restaurant which was pretty cool. Definitely a great lunch spot would love to go back again!

Armed with a precise Italian coffee machine, carefully crafted, delicious desserts, and a relaxing, green view this charming cafe was one of our favorite spots. We enjoyed a falafel sandwich that was out of this world, a capuccino, and a flour less chocolate cake with coffee and cardamom for flavor. Emilio and his staff made us feel right at home and he even dug up a very dear artist and song writer's record for us. Him playing this music for us just made our day. It was in this excellent cafe that the wedding's appetizers were made and those were delicious too!
