It is a boutique connected to a coffee shop/ café. They had some nice higher end goods. The café served fresh smoothies, and they had good Wi-Fi. Good place to hang out and get your web surfing done. Really classy selection of both food and souvenirs.

Besides having great food and drinks, the shop has wonderful gifts, clothing that is of good quality and style and decor and souvenirs. Usually spend a couple of hours there, eating and browsing around the store.

We ate lunch here on our first day as we weren't able to check in to our condo. The food was excellent, and service was quick. One of our party was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a gluten free meal. The breads were delicious, and prices reasonable.

Went for breakfast here on a recommendation from a guy we met on the beach. One word! Delicious! We both ordered the typical TiVo breakfast, which consisted on Gallo pinto, creamy delicious scrambled brown eggs, fresh local cheese, and plantains. For a beverage we ordered the tropical shake! All just scrumptious! Definitely find this place and give it a try!... More
