We came here due to all the positive reviews and were very disappointed! The smoothies were delicious and the pancakes but the fish tacos were very greasy and the chicken casados were horrible. On the bright side it was cheap.

Had breakfastt here everyday. Can very much recommend the typical Costa Rican combo of Gallo Pinto with Scrambled Eggs and Queso Frito. And they got awesome smoothies there!

My boyfriend and I went there 3 times. The breakfast is very cheap and good, but also the dinner is delicious. For your smoothie you can choose between different fruits, but also can choose 2 or 3 that will be mixed together.

Good Tico style food. Big family run place at the very south end of the Dominical main drag opposite Tropical Sands hotel which is the best in town. Good cheap fare looks are deceiving in Costa Rica. Worth a check they also have a fruit...More

The place is definitely out of the way, tucked away on a back lane, next to a backpacker hostel. It's a family run local joint ("soda") that serves "typical" Tico food as well as things like burgers, tacos, smoothies, etc. We went there for lunch...More

The best coffee grown and managed by a WOMEN! In a place where you usually only find instant coffee, a nice cup of coffee with breakfast or lunch or a hearty, healthy and delicious smoothie... any combo of fruit for the same price!!! Worth every penny!! Located right behind Domilocos!!
