“Great food, charming space, adequate service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

The little restaurant space has an artist's studio and a library for you to check out which is great because it's probably going to take a fair bit of time for the staff to acknowledge you. That's not to say they're not friendly, just not really eager. Once your food is ordered though, you're in for a treat. Many meals have been eaten there and I have yet to have one that wasn't delicious.

“Lovely little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Great food at good prices, all cooked fresh to order. Their bookstore- a kind of bring and share bookshelf created by books tourists have left was great- found some super reads.

“Breakfast in a very nice surrounding!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We had breakfast at zwart cafe, the menu is abundant, full of delicious stuff, the portions are okay, the service too, prices as everywhere in the town (about 20$ for two drinks, a burrito and fresh fruit with granola and yogurt).

The owner is an artist, she paints right next to the cafe and her paintings are great! Loved them. She's very lovely, as is the whole place.

Totally recommendable for a breakfast (or lunch) in santa teresa.

“Deeeeelish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2014

Awesome atmosphere, very light and airy decor and their chicken burrito is on point. There is also an "art gallery" attached to the restaurant (mostly paintings done by the owner) that adds a nice effect. Great place!

This cute little cafe offers a great ambiance and delicious food! The food and drink menu hits the spot for breakfast and lunch every time. The art studio and bookstore are a neat addition to the environment. Love it!
