What a better combination? Hide away in the city, in a typical, historical house which has been restored and appreciated. Hot and cold coffees, paninis and desserts. Kind service wants to make you stay and read, work, eat, and enjoy!

Coming from New York I'm always looking for the best coffee shops- this one by far being at the top of my list. You can tell this family has a passion for roasting and brewing coffee, with that said it doesn't get any more authentic than this. I initially only went for coffee, but couldn't resist their pastries. I wound up stopping by this shop every day of my vacation, and can't wait to revisit once I go back! Whether you're a local, or on vacation make sure you check this place out!

The best coffee, service, and food I have experienced in a long time. Their signature caramel cappuccino is definitely something that you do not want to miss. We also tried their turkey panini, which was definitely an explosion of flavors in your mouth; it had tons of turkey, cream cheese, Swiss cheese and an awesome Guava jelly, it was to die for!

Their staff is extremely friendly and the service is on point. They roast their own coffee right on site and the smell that comes from that is like none other. This coffee shop location has amazing history to it as well, as it dates back 130 years. One of the owners came over and talked to us, making us feel right at home and giving us the full history of the location. A major plus is that it is also pet friendly!!

Overall our experience was amazing and next time we are in Costa Rica, this will be our first stop.

I have to say I was surprised about this little oasis in the middle of bustling Escazu! It's a quiet, rustic location with great food and freshly roasted coffee.
I ordered the cuban panini and a quiche Lorraine, both were very good and at a very reasonable price.
I also tried the blueberry lemonade, it is all natural with no sugar added, very refreshing!
I highly recommend stopping in, you will be surprised how tranquil the place is even though it's right in near el cruce, you truly feel like you are on a coffee farm.
