“mmmmm...Smoothies!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast during our visit to San Juan del Sur. My fruit with coconut milk and cinnamon was refreshing and his banana pancakes were amazing! The smoothies, however, were a highlight...huge and delicious...and around $3! Yummy!

“worth visiting”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Certainly worth spending time at this restaurant. My wife and I had lunch and on another occasion enjoyed a very good smoothie. Great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere.

“Cold coffee”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

The usual San Juan del Sur coffee spot was closed the other morning, so I decided to try this joint. The self-serve coffee pot was full, but unplugged hours previously. Nobody had noticed. A bracing cup of cold coffee is better than no coffee first thing in the morning, true, but I wonder who goes back for more?

Hi. Thanks for leaving a review. We are so sorry that the coffee was cold. Every once in a blue moon, someone forgets to hit the switch on the coffee pot. We use the best coffee beans available, and when it's hot, it's truely delicious. Feel free to come back and get yourself a hot cup of coffee. Thanks again.

“greasy”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

tried a cheese omelet (only choice of omelet they have) and it came with potatoes. Although the potatoes were diced very small, they were still hard. Both the omelet and the potatoes were swimming in margerine, very greasy. If you've ever tasted the margerine down here you know how bad it tastes! the list of smoothies looked interesting although expensive, but I would definetly stay away from the omelet and potato choice.
