Loved the healthy food options here. A great change if you are looking for a bit of a break from gallo pinto! A bit more pricey than local food but fantastic quality and great service. A must for coffee lovers!

We visited the corner house twice during our stay in Moyogalpa, once for coffee and again for lunch/coffee. The coffee was strong and delicious. I don't know how they made the iced Americano taste so good! The food was fresh and delicious as well.

Really nice place for lunch (hummus snadwich is the best!) and relax. The coffee is good, the peanut butter isn't.

We had breakfast at the Cornerhouse. The coffee and hot chocolate were both excellent, the omelette and the eggs were perfect. An excellent breakfast with quality ingredients and the price to go with it. Worth it in our opinion.

Really enjoyed eating here that went for lunch and breakfast the next day. Sandwiches were huge, bread thick and soft and salad fresh and crispy. Smoothies were delicious too, highly recommend.
