Whether it is Mellony herself or one of her friendly staff Balcon de Cafe is always a pleasant experience. The food is great all day long and the creps, pastrys and deserts are to die for, to eat in or take with you

Had lunch here. Very nice, clean place with great food. I had the chicken with white sauce and my husband had the schnitzel. Both were soooo good. We took home the apple crumb cake and some sausage. Also excellent. Great service.

We had already been in Costa Rica for a week when we came here. The food was excellent especially the chicken in white sauce (Travis special?). We’re traveling with my 2 young kids (ages 3 and 6) and they were very accommodating. Everything was so great for dinner we came back for breakfast and were not disappointed. The espresso drinks were great as was the food. We also enjoyed the meats and cheeses in the deli case which we took for our trip to Manuel Antonio. This place is a real gem. Not to be missed if you’re in or near Atenas.

I have now been to Balcon de Cafe 4 times and have been delighted with their meal options and pastries! I encourage anyone in Atenas to stop their for a meal or to bring home some pastries if you haven't already made that a destination.

This location reminds of a feel of Europe within Costa Rica. Atenas as a whole can have a bit of a Mediterranean vibe to it, and Balcon de Cafe is no exception. We came here multiple times in just 4 days in Atenas. Our group of 4 loved their dinner. Yes, service is a little slow, but who cares right!? The apple cake they have for desert is to die for, and something our group of 4 will talk about for months to come. It's been pretty much a daily occurrence since returning home from our vacation that one of us will mention "wow, really want that apple cake right now." :) Great experience at Balcon de Cafe.
