I love this little coffee shop with adjacent retail store called Manifesto. The delightful owner, Mar, designs a lot of the clothing and also sells local artisan goods. We became instant friends! Great cup of Costa Rican coffee and the large fresh fruit bowl made my morning, twice! It's easy to bike everywhere in PV so this was my morning... More

We happened to find this place when the smell of the fresh baked bagels lured us in. We had super high quality bagel sandwiches for lunch. This place really prides themselves on healthy good food, which we really appreciate. They also make a homemade ginger ale with fresh ginger, lemon, water, and cane sugar. After traveling for a month my... More

My favourite meal was the fruit salad with coconut ice cream and a banana smoothie (in Spanish: "smoothie de banano"). I loved eating and reading here, listening to their great music selection. Everybody always had a nice smile for me and tolerated my atrocious Spanish.

Guys, if you are looking for a phenomenal breakfast in Puerto Viejo, you've found it. We stumbled across this little cafe and immediately fell in love. Good coffee, great views of the beach. Its a laid back spot and its tiny! So you just settle in and soak in the views. We had banana pancakes that were out of this... More

Mar, the owner is the lovliest person ever! The sandwiches are so delicious, I already miss them! Fresh, high quality food! They care about recycling and know where they get their ingredients from! Silvia and Angela are so nice and the vibe of the cafe is so nice! The view is lovely and the music typical Puerto!

We stumbled across this place while seeking out some quick food. The menu is simple but does it well. We opted for some sandwiches which were awesome! My smoothie was fantastic as well. My wife had an iced tea which was a little on the south side but it is explained that it is a tea bag with iced water... More

You will be invited to yourself to enter and taste anything here. Believe me, I don't drink coffee. My mom says coffee is good. We found here great Caribbean homemade snacks that we promise ourself to get back again every time we will visit Puerto Viejo.

On the second floor opposite the MEPE bus stop, this coffee shop is easy to miss. Run by a friendly couple, the coffee and sandwiches are delicious. The bread is fresh baked every day. The talented lady runs the clothes boutique called Manifesto next door in addition to the DreadNut and paints colorful postcards as well. I spent 2 hours... More
