We enjoyed lunch here - recommend the chicken and pesto sandwich which was very tasty. Service was very friendly and there were vegetarian options available. ( Am told the veggie casada was great).

The service was great, the atmosphere is relaxed and charming, and the food was incredible. Highly recommend. Excellent, locally sourced ingredients, high quality coffee and chocolate and very reasonably priced. Really can't praise the place enough.

We had lunch and dinner here whilst staying in Monteverde and both meals were delicious. Our favourite place in the town and reasonably priced compared to the average. Definitely worth a visit!

We loved 😍 this restaurant. My favorite so far in CR. Great service and menu. Our food, drinks and desserts were delicious. I had the tenderloin- it was extraordinary! Ample parking in side lot. Highly recommend.

Nice staff and amazing meal! The Pollo al Curry y Maranon (chicken with coconut curry) was by far one of the best meals I’ve had in Costa Rica. My only regret was the meal was so big I didn’t have room for dessert, which also...looked amazing! Definitely a great place to go for dinner (and likely breakfast too).More

We went for lunch. Everything was delicious. However the table next to us went for dessert and I wished I had saved room for dessert. All of the desserts and shakes looks so wonderful. We had a wonderful lunch. Everyone was very nice and excellent...EnglishMore

After a full day of hiking this spot was exactly what our stomachs needed to refuel. The cafe offered a great mix of local traditional dishes and some fun international flare. Such hearty dishes and excellent portions. The value for quality and price are excellent....Conveniently located in the center of town so perfect for a in between stop in your day if adventure. Order the chicken curry (incredible!!!) or the steak and Diablo dish both are favorites.More

Easy stop along route 620, with adequate parking. Relaxing atmosphere and serving breakfast, lunch and coffee/pastries Enjoyed a flat white and yellow cake with whip cream icing. Not too sweet, moist and tasty pairing.

Our family wandered into this warm and welcoming cafe each wanting something different. My son got the chocolate cake and ice cream, my daughter the pasta with chicken and vegetables and soup for my husband. Everything was delicious! We finished with coconut flan and carrot...cake. So many yummy desserts to choose from.More

We stopped here for a late lunch and ate out on the patio. The food is good and the restaurant is very clean and well kept. The quesadilla with salad was enough for two adults to share and the kids menu is basic but amusing....Coffee drinks are out of this world and the chai latte was the best we’ve ever had. There is something for everyone whether you want a sandwich or a tico plate.More

Our family of six had a wide variety of menu items, lattes, frappes, and hot and cold chocolate were a great treat after our Biological Reserve hike. Sandwiches, quesadillas, and topico lunches were all very good. Quality ingredients and great flavor. We topped it all...off with dessert to go and we’re in heaven with chocolate caramel cake, chocolate coconut cheesecake and carrot cake. What a great little cafe. A must visit while in Monteverde.More

I had the burger and fries, which tasted delicious. Danny our server and the rest of the staff did a great job from start to finish for such a large group. I tried a little of the tomato soup and it was very rich and...a nice highlight for many. Highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner.More
