Ok.

You have to stop by this place if you are in Tamarindo. It is right on the beach with outdoor seating. None inside.

They take credit cards too.

We all ordered different things. I had the Waffle Monkey special. Everything on the menu looked great and everything we ordered tasted great.

It is a small place so it does take a bit for your food but it is worth it. Get a table down by the beach and enjoy the wait.

Then stuff your pie hole with deliciousness!

Stop by for dessert or breakfast!

Great place to have a coffee or an amazing waffle that is served in many ways. Delicious!! Staff are awesome
And food/drinks are great. Try an ice coffee - one of the best In town. It’s literally between main road and beach, easy to find.

The waffles here are simply the best. What a great way to start your day. Right on the beach with some very fun waffle ideas. The first visit I enjoyed the Churro Waffle and the Chocolate Lovers one the next. Each was superb and filling. I also enjoyed an iced coffee and Banana Chocolate Milkshake. A must visit while in the area.
