Visited here for lunch being just my over 100 metres away from our hotel. Offers a range of sandwiches and salads and soft drinks. Great service and I had a great chicken panini and my parner a chicken ceaser salad, which was huge.

I stayed at an AirBnb next door and came here for breakfast 3 days in a row while I was in Tamarindo! The omelet is delicious, the staff is friendly, and prices are moderate. Would definitely recommend it!
