This place has great coffee including the iced lattes! They were also happy for me to change their Mediterranean salad to suit what I felt like adding chicken and avo which made it amazing!! Also came here for breakfast even though I didn't eat, my friends food look amazing!

I arrived on a Sunday, at sunset. This was an excellent location to watch the sunset, listen to the church bells and the bands in the park across the street. The food, however, was good but not exceptional. I had the Ceviche in Plantain cups and it was good, but nothing special. While I appreciate not having to tip in... More

Got the ceviche in plantain cups, had an off taste to it. Felt very rushed too, wouldn't recommend going here if your looking for a good dinner in the area.

Years ago this was my favorite spot for breakfast, but how times have changed. This morning I had a Nacional breakfast ($8) with a cafe con leche. It is twice as expensive as most other breakfast spots in la fortuna, and for half the portion. It's tough to screw up breakfast, but the platano maduro was way over cooked to... More

Quick service, large portions, and reasonably priced. I had the nacional breakfast and my friend had the huevos rancheros. Both were delicious and came with homemade tortillas.

Went to this café because of the reviews, but it did not live up to the expectation . The location has charm, but the service is subpar . The waiter was not friendly, I guess we are just used to all the Tico's that are always so friendly , the food was good, but not worth a second trip.

Stopped in for delicious coffee and breakfast. The food offered was a good variety and everyone enjoyed their meal. The iced latte and lemonades were refreshing and the hot coffee very good. We were in a hurry and they accommodated us friendly and quickly. I would give 5 stars except for the prices being a little high compared to other... More

Nice place to have a coffee. Breakfast was ok but a bit overpriced for what you get. The cashier is about as unfriendly as you will meet. Not a smile, or thanks from her.
