If you've only had the Burrito's at Zwarts, then you need to go back! The surfer bowls, the jars and the smoothies are amazing and excellent value for money. The health salad (with chicken) or the Moroccan bowl are delicious and filling after an early morning surf session. Top that off with a cappuccino or ginger lemonade and brownie or... More

We had breakfast there for 6 days (after surfing). It's a bit expensive but the staff is really kind, place is cool and all the dishes are amazing.

Everyone is super friendly here, the food is consistently good, you can tell the staff works as a team. Lots of vegan and vegetarian options, which is true of many places in Santa Teresa. We were so happy to find this spot! It is a pretty funky spot with lots of artwork all around. It isn't necessarily the quickest service... More

We had many people recommend Cafe Zwart but personally we were a bit disappointed. The art space is very cool and it's definitely a great place to chill out, relax and catch some wifi. However the food took ages to come (and we are pretty relaxed about wait times) and the fish tacos and salad roll we had were fine,... More

This is a great place to while away your time over a great coffee and superb meal. Long tables with bench seating make for a community feel and promote visiting with other customers.

Beautiful paintings and decoration, really good vibes. The coffee and vanilla milshake and pancakes were just perfect. We couldn't resist to leave without buying a painting to bring home a little bit of the Santa Teresa vibes, the only souvenir we will carry home in fact !

My husband and I had breakfast at Zwart this morning! We both really enjoyed our dishes. He got the surfers slam and I had a quinoa bowl. The coffee was also really tasty. This was our last day in Playa Santa Teresa but we will definitely come back next time we visit. The staff was good and I met the... More
