We ate here several times during our stay in Montezuma. All of the food we ordered was good. We can speak to the omlettes, pancakes, typical Gallo Pinto, and the granola and yogurt breakfast. The coconut bread is delicious and the coffee is very good.

I had Red Thai seafood curry, which was lovely.My friend who is vegan had stuffed potatoes which she found not as tasty or as large a portion as described, or imagined. This was disappointing as mine was so tasty. Would be prepared to try again.....although the service was very slow.

The Bakery in Cabuya just blew our minds away! It's one of those places where everything is made with love and one can sense it in any bite. We had coffee and sweet treats that were just amazing!

The food and service were fantastic but share a meal because they give you enough for two at least! I had the shrimp in white sauce pasta and it was so good that i kept eating long after I should've stopped. The guy working there recommended it to me and he was really nice.

People line up for this place. Desserts that are delicious and pretty good pizza too. The best desserts in my view are the dulce de leche, the croissants, doughnuts and the strawberry shortcake. As well, I found it pretty hard to land a good espresso in the area, but this place has it in spades. Enjoy a special treat in... More

We enjoyed an eventful breakfast. Had a lovely meal with great coffee. They play a good variety of music and it is a comfortable place to hang. Sometimes the birds can be a little persistent. The blue bird seemed to know when we were close to being finished and zoomed in for a piece of fruit.

Great food, typical breakfast fare along with excellent baked goods. Coconut bread was especially delicious. Enjoyed ham and cheese omelet, French toast, and black beans and rice with scrambled eggs.

Being in many places during our two weeks in Costa Rica, this was the worst place so far! We were unfortunately very hungry and thirsty, but we had to wait for even the drinks for almost an hour. The waiter was really unexperienced, also blaiming his staff mates for the delays. We couldn't care less who's fault it was. When... More
