Thanks for your review Matt. We're glad you enjoy our menu items and delicious home-made ice cream selections. Hope to see you again when the world gets back to 'normal' and you're in the area.

The sorbet is great but don’t try ordering food. You’ll wait an hour for a sandwich. And when it arrives, it’ll be very substandard. Cafe de Paris is a much better option for breakfast and lunch.More

Robin’s is a fixture in Nosara and for good reason. The menu is full of delicious, healthy, creative choices. Everything is so fresh! The vibe is chill. And the lovely young man at counter is warm and welcoming. Bravo Robins for keeping it real. See...you again next year!More

OMG! We had heard great things about this cafe but upon trying it for ourselves it went beyond the hype. Without exaggeration I could easily say this was the best ice cream I've ever had in my life! Try the fresh mint ice cream. Also...the Mayan chocolate with real cacao. Lots of great food choices much of it organic. Exotic drinks include White Dog Ginger Beer, organic aloe vera drink and of course they have organic kombucha.More

I was very impressed with this cafe. The food and service was outstanding and the prices were great. I was offered a free water within seconds of sitting down. This was greatly appreciated as I had asked for a water a few hours before at...another restaurant and was charged $5 USD for it. I had a chance to meet the new owner Colin and he was very pleasant and helpful. Definitely a great spot to check out!!!!More

Such a cute little cafe in a nice shady spot which provides a welcome relief from the heat. The ice-cream is excellent. We loved the Caramel Oatmeal Cookie ice-cream. They also have a breakfast and lunch menu.

Great place for healthy quick lunches. The icecream is made inhouse and is delicious. The sandwiches and wraps are great and worth the wait.
