Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Some of the absolute best food and coffee we had all week. Once we discovered it, we went 3 days in a row. The owner and staff are incredibly warm and friendly. And possibly the best espresso I’ve ever had, anywhere. So good, I bought...a 2lb bag of their beans. Go here. You will not regret it.More

This is a small, not pretentious but comfortable place with great food. The menu is not extensive but you won't need more than they offer. Service is very friendly and personal. Definitely a place I would come back.

This place is incredible. Fast service, even when crowded, super fresh and delicious food. We went there every day on our visit. The media luna (half moon) pastries stole the show. Don’t miss those on your visit!

We have been going here since Cafe Social opened. It has been superb since day one and continues to be consistently, what is it 3 yrs later. Whether breakfast or lunch there is wonderful food and homemade snacks to indulge in here. You can sit...inside or out. Andreas minds the register and he is a gem!! Stop in. You won't be disappointed. *This is on the north side of town and oh so nice and peaceful!More

Really enjoyed a casual lunch here. We had a smoothie, a salad, a pulled pork sandwich, and a piece of carrot cake. Would order everything again. Ingredients seemed really fresh and healthy.

While there are a lot of cafes in this area, we can say that this one is by far the best combination of food and service. Delicious variety of sandwiches, breakfasts, smoothies, and pastries, etc. The food is all made in house, with fresh local...quality ingredients, as much as possible. The coffee is excellent, community sourced beyond the usual Brit everyone serves (Costa Rican’s StarB of coffee) - taste some real Costa Rican coffee! Service is very attentive, and staff are a wealth of local information. Try it, you will make it part of your routine ;)More
