Perfect place for breakfast after coming back from the beach. The kids continue to play in the pool while the older generation takes a well deserved rest. All that while Hugo and Angelina (possibly the nicest Ticos I have met) read you wish from the lips.

If you are craving that classic bakery experience, you gotta try this place. The croissants were fantastic and the coffee good.

We ate here 3 times during a 10 day stay, so that should say something. We really liked this place. Let's start with the food. A nice variety of menu offerings. As with most other restaurants there, the portions were enormous. When you order the steak, you get steak, plus fries, plus salad, plus grilled veggies and god only knows... More

we enjoyed a good lunch on a nice terrace with good service. Dishes were served with a lot of vegetables! they have also a nice bakery with an more European taste oriented offer. But the biggest surprise was the jungle mini-golf with 18 challenging unique holes. Very different from the classical boring and bad mantained European installations. Definitively recommendable to...

My daughter loved it. Very clean and centrally located to Nosara. We had some great food that was reasonably priced and the drinks were good too. Share the burger though. I'd be surprised if one child could finish it.

This restaurant became a fast favorite on our first trip to Nosara. A traveling companion bought an entire plate of macaroons! And their mini-quiches were a great breakfast. They did a birthday cake for us too an it was amazing.

It's basically a coffee machine (Kurig?) so you get what you pay for. The bakery items are delicious though.
