“Best breakfast in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

We really were happy to find the cafe. By San Juan del Sur standards it is probably best cafe. The menu is continental, everyone will find something they like. The coffee drinks are wonderful too.

We ate at Barrio Cafe several times during our stay in SJDS. The service was always excellent, the food was splendid and the atmosphere was welcoming. Highly recommended!

“The place has potential but needs tweaking!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

On the recommendation of a shuttle travelling companion, we decided to try this place for lunch and unfortunately we left disappointed (and still hungry). Good location and lovely decor. Lots of attentive staff but we would have appreciated a little less "hovering". The restaurant was far from full but we felt as though we were being rushed thru our meal. I ordered a blueberry, banana and pineapple smoothie with vanilla ice cream and was hoping for a generous, icy cold drink...but it came in the thinnest glass available and was lukewarm. The tomato and avocado sandwich was tasty but the side salad was so basic (mixed greens with a bit of olive oil)...the kitchen needs to get a bit more creative with that. Pricey for what we got. We'll be here in SJDS for a few more days, but we won't be returning.

“Great brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

Cool little restaurant. Eggs Benedict with bacon side was fantastic. Picking the brunch option gets you choices including mimosa and cappuccino and bacon and fried potato. Very good service, wifi and some jazz. Nice break after a week of Nica breakfast.
