Great breakfast with of course- wonderful coffee. The traditional Costa Rican breakfast is very tasty and fulfilling. We had great service and a nice meal. My wife tried the fruit platter which she enjoyed as well.

Wandered into this little gem for breakfast and coffee. My husband and I were in Coco for a week and wanted to check out this place. We are outside on the nice patio, the fresh pineapple and ginger juice that my husband ordered was so...tasty I almost finished it. I had a veggie omelet and my spouse had the typical breakfast. Both were very good, the omelets are very fulfilling. My husband did also order a fresh fruit shake to go as he was still a bit hungry! The service was great and the local art attached is great! Will be back!!!More

Spent 1.5 hours of our lives here trying to get a fresh breakfast . Should have walked out, but it was our first day in Playa Coco and was thinking ok give them a little time......time it was. Food overall was good not great, prices...were very expensive compared to other places. Would not go back.More

Near the Hard Rock Cafe, we didn't want to eat there, and in the same strip is this little cafe with a little art store attached. We had a wonderful lunch there including the Caprese sandwich with chicken and a Cuban sandwich which were both...excellent! I would definitely eat there again and highly recommend it.More

Had breakfast and lunch here. Wonderful ambiance, with interesting art and a variety of seating that made it feel as if we were in a sitting room. Food was very good. this is ib the Pacifico Center square. Interesting gift shop adjacent, also.

We stopped in for breakfast and found it to be of good quality. The service was painfully slow. They did not want to take any coin when we were paying which was a bit awkward.More
