We enjoyed a great breakfast here with friendly service. They had a good mix of American style favorites and Gallo Pinto. Yum!

The food is excellent, the service was warm and friendly. I was looking for a breakfast place on TripAdvisor, and this place popped up. We decided to give it a try, and we were pleasantly surprised. It's slightly tucked away from the busy main road it's on, so you can have a peaceful meal. We enjoyed it so much, we... More

Awesome service and good coffee. The place has an open air layout with views of the street and mountains from the patio out front. I highly recommend this place for breakfast.

We were en route to Puerto Quepos and stopped in for a cup of coffee and had a fresh fruit plate. We were hoping to have an early lunch at one of my favorite restaurants in town, but they did not open until 11:00 AM and we were there at 10:00. The delightful young waitress from Quebec City was engaging,... More

I was looking for a good solid breakfast and I found it here. Good service and excellent food. Everything was hot and cooked to order. The toast was excellent and with the tasty jam, it was surprisingly enjoyable. Not a typical CR breakfast but it hit the spot. Great service.

Sandra, a transplant from Canada has hit a home run with this out of the way cafe. Opened in 2000 and still cooking a tasty breakfast. My wife and I split the egg, bacon, and cheese breakfast sandwich, a glass of oj, and two coffees for 14 dollars tip and tax included. A previous visit included the cinnamon roll, which... More
