Nice fresh food, oatmeal pancakes and fruit are great, coffee is good too. Nice shady spot with fans to fill up with good food.

One of our favorite breakfast spots in Puerto Viejo. Great atmosphere, wonderful customer service. Lots of variety on the menu, and one of the best cups of coffee!

We LOVED the food, but it had been rainy the few days before and we were EATEN ALIVE by mosquitoes! No kidding. DEET meant nothing to these guys. Amazing food, great coffee and juices. Took a DELICIOUS brownie with cocao nibs for the road. I would 100% recommend, but just beware if you attract mosquitoes and it has been rainy!

It's cute, small and open air so you get the breeze but also the rain on the outer tables. The menu is pretty fixed with no real ability to be flexible ... scrambled eggs cannot become an omelette and omelettes are not on the menu!! So if you're looking for a place where they are open to meeting your culinary/dietary needs ... this is not it.

On the other hand ... the scrambled eggs and bacon were good ... hard to screw them up of course. The coffee is okay but not as good as other cafes in town.

Because it's small with few tables there is always the sense that you have to move on. Unlike other places where you can stay, sit, drink coffee, read, use your computer ... this one just doesn't have that feel at all.

The people are nice but this is not a place I'd return to. I've reviewed two other cafes for Puerto Viejo ... check those out ... they are far better.

Try the caribbean pancakes, they are amazing...probably some of the best I have had I am not a huge pancake fan. Scrambled eggs were excellent. Also, the honey there is some of the best I have had...wish I could have taken bottles of it home. Great service as well the two times we were there, people are very friendly and attentive.
