My husband Ronnaton was not impressed by the prices for breakfast items. Let me tell you, I don't know much about that money thing AKA I don't know how to count the colones currency.

Thank you, we are glad you enjoyed your breakfast sandwich! For the prices we must say that we are on par with most restaurants in the area and hence why we are also positioned in that price range.

Like REAL croissants? Avocado toast on fresh baked bread? Fresh roasted coffee? Mango cake? Everything is wonderful here. Take a break from the beach and get lunch. Go after dinner for dessert. Get up the next day for coffee and breakfast. Never leave.
