Description: A quaint cafe that serves breakfast, breakfast breads, coffee, expressos, lunch, and early dinners. There is music on Sundays. A cafe dog that greets everyone who comes to the cafe. A beautiful hand made tile shop next door with gifts or watch the craftsmen in action making the tiles. We have clubs that meet at our Cafe, come join one! Our Cafe is not "bar themed" or "Americanized" it's more than just a Cafe..It's Cafe de Artistas, you just have to experience it.

After reading reviews we decided to try. We were a group of six. It took an hour to serve the food for lunch. We were the only people there. Food was generally Average. A lot of fried potatoes. If you go stay with the typical Costa Rican food.

“Great coffee desserts and good foos!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

The food is good and their dessert frozen coffees with ice cream and liquors are delicious. But the best part is the bohemian artistic ambiance.

“Great food and atmosphere..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

One of the few restaurants I have been to in Escazu where I felt like I was in Costa Rica and not a suburban strip mall. It is a small open restaurant, opening on to a quiet residential street. It has shade, is quiet, good service, interesting menu and the food great.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

The food is great. Since it is somewhat outdoors there are smokers which I detest while eating
