“Disappointed”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

When I saw this place I thought I might have a good espresso there. I ordered a double, what I got was a filled up small cup. The tastewas so-so, had worse, but expected much better. As far as I know you serve a double in a bigger cup, which will be half full. The small cup is for a single.
The looks of the place are oke, I think I ran in to the wrong 'barista' as he clearly didn't know what he was doing.

“best coffee”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This is the place to go if you really want to enjoy top-quality coffee. We did not eat, but had our best coffee during a 3-week-Nicaragua trip here. The iced coffee is also excellent. Atmosphere relaxing and good.

“Best coffee in town”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

The title says everything: they have the best coffee in town! And for a good price. Wish I had cappuccino like these in my own town.

“Lots to improve on”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Yep coffee was good. Friendly service.

Took 10 minutes for Latte with only 6 other people in the place.

Breakfast was a 20 minute wait. Eggs done wrong...I think because cook was also waiting tables and making smoothies.

Smoothie took 15 and was the wrong flavor.

Prices not bad.

I can see where this would be a nice place t sit around, drink coffee and talk.
