“Good food, nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2012

We loved the laid back, open air location just a short 400 yards from our Guesthouse. We enjoyed a good breakfast at Mayela's with good coffee, fresh fruit juice and hot breakfast.

“Earl Grey Tea and home-made cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

Mayela's tea room is a real treat for an early afternoon tea and cake. Generous servings which is always appreciated by someone with quite a sweet tooth. My children were thrilled with their plates of ice-cream topped with gummy bears, which were big enough for me to share too! There aren't many places in Costa Rica where you can get a really good cup of tea but this would be one of them!

“Hearty breakfast, great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Mayella's is a very nice spot to stop for breakfast, just a short walk from town up the street from "Pepe's beach. There are plenty of choices with "American" and "Canadian" breakfast depending on what kind of bacon you want but the pancake is really something special, Mayella puts the "cake" in pancake. The pancake takes up the wholes plate, is about an inch thick and is delicious. It comes with local fresh fruit like mango, banana and pineapple and with yoghurt. The coffee is freshly pressed and the servers are very friendly. Certainly worth the walk from town,

“Great breakfast in a nice setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Best breakfast in the Cahuita area, hands down. You must try the mocha coffee. I already am missing the flavor. The pancakes and french toast were really good as well.
