I love coming here when we visit Tamarindo. They make amazing deli style sandwiches with fresh baked bread using quality ingredients. The owner is so nice!

affordable and good food. Right on main street, the owner works there and make's sure you're happy. He dose'nt even exagerate on the price of a good wine glass.

Had a mediocre sandwich, good coffee, but the owner seems to be a horrible person who gossips about her customers in Italian.

One of my favorite places to eat while in Tamarindo. The pizza is fresh and tasty. The owners are very hospitable and friendly. The gelato is to die for!!

Best coffee I've had in 20 days here in Costa Rica! Friendly chill atmosphere for our early morning coffee. PS: They have AC so it's also a nice place to cool off.

Gea is an absolute gem. She has owned this place for ten years, and you can tell she puts her love of food into each and every visitor. I would highly suggest you drop by for any of her delicious meals. Lovely, so glad we found you!

Couldn't resist having a mid-morning snack and this is THE place!! Outdoor seating and great AC inside for the hot days! Their many choices of smoothies are delicious, but their banana cake is to die for!! We sat outdoors and inside, and were served promptly and with the friendliest service! We made this stop part of our morning routine! Definitely... More
