“I still miss Emilio's cafe.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Emilio's has the best cappucinos and baked goods. We went several times while we were in Manuel Antonio. If you go you must have his falafel pita. So amazing! Emilio was so friendly, my daughter asked about his artwork as she knew about the artist and he brought his book for her to look at next time we came. I can't say enough great stuff about Emilio's Cafe.

“Dessert and coffe”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We stopped by here for some celebration cake and coffee, and to get a bit of studying done. This is a beautiful place to read and relax, and the cake is very good. I had a mud pie, and my sister had the guava cheesecake. Both were very lovely and enjoyable. I thought it was a little dense, but that's just personal preference. The people who work there are so very nice. I thought this was the most down to earth place in all of Manuel Antonio.

“Wonderful!!!!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

We went to Emilio's cafe for breakfast today and we loved it! We both had chocolate croissants which were delicious! I had an iced cappucino and it was great and my boyfriend had the best coffee we've tasted in costa rica! The cafe has a good vibe and also good views. Definitely a great place to check out!

“Excellent Iced Cappuccino”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

They had us at Cappuccino, but everything we had there was yummy! We ate here and took out food several times during our 3 day stay. The tuna Salad special was Fab! If you are a sashimi fan, ask for the tuna uncooked on the side, to die for it's so fresh!!! Macaroons, flour less chocolate cake, passionfruit cheesecake, all awesome, and so was Emilio. He's a very attentive and happy host that likes to chat if he's not too busy which adds to the already nice atmosphere.

“Loved by locals and travellers”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by for coffees and dessert after dinner and the cafe was bustling with regulars. We had the ice cap and ice mochachino and they were both refreshing and yummy. We also had their special macarons and it was huge and taste like it was made the same day. Highly recommended for a quiet night out in MA.
