Love this "tree house" in Placencia. Lovely people behind the counter and friendly customers hanging out on the front or back decks. Really enjoyed my visits here.

A handy stop to meet friends and enjoy some iced coffee. Prices are a bit high, but servings are generous. The location is great and clearly a local favorite. Take the time to make the stop.

Very good coffee and selection of baked goods, but not a great breakfast place. Stopped for breakfast and had a doughnut and banana bread which was great, but could have used something a little more substantial. Still a great place for coffee though.

We had a nice half hour at Above Grounds, with some delicious coffee - especially my decaf almond milk latte - not a drink order that’s likely to be available very often in Central America! It was lovely just sitting and watching the world go...More

My soy latte was good. I was happy they had soy milk. The most pleasant surprise was the blended vegetable juice: cold, fresh, no sweeteners added, and very flavorful! Staff is super friendly and accommodating. And there is a bookshelf of paperbacks to share!

My " go to" place for ice coffee and a fresh bagel and cremecheese. Love to relax on deck, keep an eye on happenings below, check emails on wifi, sometimes with banana bread.

Food and service was very good, will certainly go again while I am here. Very relaxing atmosphere where you can bring your dogs if you like. Right in the main road so it is easy to get to.

This is a friendly and relaxing way to start the day with a great cup of coffee. It is an adorable coffee shop too. My son absolutely loved the doughnuts and the carrot bread was a treat.

We loved to hop on our bicycles and grab a great cup of coffee to go. This little coffee shop was perfect. One of my favorite places in Placencia.
