Super staff! The best smoothies ever!! Ate here many times with my family in the 3 months we stayed in Pavones. The jungle buzz balls are super addictive! Seriously, do not miss this place. Awesome view of the surfers from the patio!

We came here for lunch and it was very good food. Relaxing vibe and friendly owners. We didn't return again as the food is quite expensive compared to other places. Nevertheless we can recommend eating here.

Wonderful family runs the restaurant and even though we ate early we could tell it was a local hangout. Food was good, warm, fast and reasonable priced. The trip from Golfito to Pavones was very memorable with unpaved roads, rocks, terrifying bridges and many views of ocean. Even though it was rugged, it was well worth the trip to see... More

Any time we were in Pavones we would end up at Cafe Suerte for a bite to eat for a fruity drink. The owners are very friendly, helpful and do an excellent job of supporting the community by hosting venders, birthday parties, etc. The quiche is amazing and you may even find yourself day-dreaming about it!

My sisters and I stayed at the Café de la Suerte for a week and immediately fell in love. Not only was the family who ran the business so accommodating, they made us feel very at home. Our room was so beautiful and came with a great view of the little town and the beach all for a good price.... More

This is the best breakfast place in town. In fact, it may be the only breakfast place in town. The smoothies taste like the fruit was picked fresh that morning. Which it probably was. Nice variety on the menu for a small cafe. You can have a hearty eggs and pancake breakfast or a light breakfast. Located in the heart... More
