We ate at waffle monkey three days in row because the waffles were that good. I normally don’t eat waffles but after having a bite of my son’s churro waffle, I ordered waffle with eggs and bacon the next day. The waffles are so good you don’t even need syrup. Aside from the food, the service was great too! So friendly and helpful with recommendations. We will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Tamarindo area.

My boyfriend is a huge pancake and waffle fanatic. When we saw the waffle monkey and walked in he was in heaven. The gentleman behind the counter or super nice and so was the owner Jacob. The gentleman even said," if there's something not on the menu you want we will do our best to help you. That's true customer service and we appreciate it.
My boyfriend got the eggs and bacon with a Belgian waffle which is a Friday on the side and crispy bacon. I got the burrito waffle. I believe that's what it's called. But mine had a cheese and ham baked into the waffle then talked with and Herb butter and parmesan cheese with a fried egg. Holy Moly, this was so good. I never thought i would like this, but they got me!
Great service, good food, comfirtable colorful dining area right on the water to watch the waves with breakfast.

Ravergirl W, It is so pleasing for us to hear comments regarding our customer service. It is one area we aim to strive at. You had the Big Breakfast which is definitely a popular savoury choice. We are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful experience and we hope you can come and enjoy our waffles on the beach again some time soon.

Sought this place out - great waffles, seriously yummy, healthy on top (well done of them), v high quality, met the owner (very friendly). A very cool and different place for lunch (or breakfast or whatever). We then had some shakes at the associated shake place around the corner (Shake n’ Dogs) - totally decadent, unique and sugar laden. Had to try them !
Check these places out.

After surfin all morning with family, we had the best breakfast in Tamarindo at Waffle Monkey!!! The peanut butter shake was delicious! We had chocolate waffles, a “salty pig” and an “apple pie” - all were absolutely delicious. The owner is super friendly and stopped to chat with us.
You don’t want to miss a day without trying these waffles. Cheers!!!
