Robin has a way with desserts,matched only by her delicious quiches,delicate salads,rich lasagnas,and special ginger carrot soup. If you find yourself in the suburb of Escazu(twenty minutes from downtown San Jose) this is the perfect place for a quite,restful,gourmet lunch.

When in Escazu centro, across from the Beacon Hotel, try Robin's great coffee shop for fresh baked goods or lunch. I love the scones! But, she also has pies, cakes, lemon squares, cookies and more. Yum!
