If you want to drink good coffee this is the place for you. Also prices are reasonable and the staff is really nice.

We were walking through the town centre having just arrived and came across what seemed one of the better cafes. The coffee snd apple cake was very good and the staff were helpful.

I ordered a frozen cappuccino for takeaway. It was very sweet, but good! It's a safe choice for coffee. I didn't' try any of their pastries but they looked pretty good. They accept credit cards.

there is really nothing else in this market worth buying other than the coffee at the Cafe. Some of the best Costa Rican coffee you can find at an extremely reasonable price. The only souvenir I need to take home!

Great place to shop coffee to take home, they pack it as you need it to have no problems at the airport.

Great coffee - served fresh or buy it to go. Bulk beans (unground or grinded), nuts, candy, pastries, cookies - gives Starbucks a good run for its money (better than!)
