We stopped in on our way through Uvita and it was a great value and really good food. Kind of the tico equivalent of a diner, with huevos rancheros and a typico breakfast option at midday. All was great.

Great place for "tico" food. Fast service and convenient location make this a great choice. Bright airy location in the center of town with low prices.

Stopped in a for a quick snack and drink while we waited for our friends to finish up some business. We were seated quickly and orders were taken immediately. The food was served up quickly; fresh and hot. Business was slow, so we tried to strike up a conversation with the owner, but he was obviously not interested in talking... More

Great food, really well priced. Good variety. It's near the main Uvita road. It's close to a beautiful waterfall.

We love breakfast here before the market or the bank - or on the way into the city. The typical breakfast is filling and satisfying, and the coffee is good.

This place is in the heart of Uvita. We stopped here for breakfast on the way to the whale tour from Dominical. Had the typical Tico breakfast here and it was tasty. The service was fast and prompt.
