Great, healthy spot on the way to Manuel Antonio! The hummus & falafel were some of the best I’ve had, but the fruit smoothies were the highlight for sure!

My wife and I stopped by as their first customers this morning to try the falafel. We were not disappointed. We started out with their fruit smoothies, so many choices, and I had the mango and ginger. Fresh with a wonderful blend of the main...More

We came here today because of the positive reviews, but were somewhat apprehensive because we are in Costa Rica, so falafel doesn't come to mind as being a top priority for food choice in such an area. Well, whether in this area or another, this...More
