We had dessert and coffee only. We found the espresso coffee drinks undrinkable. They tasted like brewed coffee with some foam on top. The desserts and cookies we ordered were also not good. Cookies very very dry. Cakes with marzipan were very sugary. We tried 8 different items and we did not like any of them. The outdoor location is nice in Escazu.

I have been here many times because their desserts are legendary and most of them are really good. Croissants are good too and they have these outdoor tables with a big umbrella where you can spend a nice afternoon coffee moment with you family or friends. Staff is ok, usually taking care of customers and you can go inside to choose your favorite dessert. Problem here is that as much as you would like to stay, you can't! There is a small river that is right beside the property and it smells VERY bad. Problem increases if it's windy. My wife enjoys the place too but once the smell gets stronger she starts to get impatient. I hope in the near future they can fix that.

Giacomin has good food and nice ambiance for a quick lunch...with dessert and a cup of fresh coffee, of course.
