The food here was decent, average prices and tasty enough. The smoothies/milkshakes are really good. The monkeys come in the mornings, and we also saw a coati. It's really cool but also sad because humans should not feed the wildlife in this manner. There are plenty of opportunities to see the monkeys in the wild. As with most restaurants in... More

If you haven't seen monkeys in Costa Rica, this is the place for lunch to see them! Love the drinks and turnovers, I had the ceviche one day and it was pretty fishy so I was a little disappointed about that.

If you want good coffee and nice, mostly french, pastries this is the place to go! Ligh, comfy and 'clean' athmosphere. You need some patience tough. We ad to wait before order and to get the bill. And when ordering several things we got them one by one. Some of the personell were running their legs off. So the place... More

Had lunch with three friends. The menu don't have any photos so I wasn't sure what to expect when I order. But the plate presentation was as good as the flavor of the food. I highly recommend the beet salad.

Easily the worst food I had while in CR. My meal arrived with a bug in it - but I let that slide since it's CR and that is expected right? The food was awful and I couldn't eat it. Coffee terrible. AND they feed the monkeys to attract tourists, which makes them aggressive and frankly terrifying. Do yourself a... More

The food was really poor and the service very slow . They didn't seem to have enough staff either waiting or cooking and the young person who appeared to be cooking didn't seem to have clue . Good lemonade though.

We went to the Bakery Cafe on the recommendation of our bnb host. I really enjoyed sitting on the patio, watching the people go by. My smoothie was wonderful. I am missing it already!! LOL

This place at the end of the main T strip of the town was a great lunch spot coming from Ylang Ylang beach. I haven't had falafel and eggplant purée that great since Israel. A job well done. The Aguas naturales were tasty and we enjoyed watching the monkeys repeatedly try to sneak into the kitchen.
