It looks like this has turned into 'Volcano Cafe', part of the Big Foot Hostel, and serves pizza and panini.

pizza + mojitos for c$70 each? unbeatable. say hi to doña ofelia and cecilia for me. sadly surrounded an atmosphere that's a bit gringo heavy and can be very racist and exclusive to the nicas, but otherwise nice place.

I went here for some vegetarian food- there are a few Veg items on the menu but not many- when I got there they were only serving pizza (Tuesday I think.) I'd check on that. The pizza was good though :)

We enjoyed a few meals here, but we mostly ate the panini and pasta. They are delicious and filling. Most of the menu consists of bagel sandwhiches and other snack-type foods. We don't speak spanish and were still well taken care of. They also have...More

They have pizza nights on Sundays and Wednesdays (they serve meat now) and I swear I've never tasted pizza so delicious.

went for breakfast with a friend and we both felt like we were being offensive by ordering food and interrupting the women from not working. food was okay though.

A fair-sized selection of vegetarian food right beside the Bigfoot hostel. Good prices! Not greasy, so it's a good place to go if you want a break from the fried chicken and gallo pinto :)

I enjoyed my pineapple and passion fruit juice with my vegetarian omelet and my boyfriend liked the coffee. a good place when you need a break from street food.

Pure Earth is great--good food, pretty inexpensive. If you need a break from Nica food, this is a good stop. They don't have gallo pinto, unfortunately...but the coffee's good.
