First off, the coffee here is great! I also had a fish filet casado here which was very tasty (although a bit oily) as well. The prices are good and the people who own it are nice!

This is a great little spot among the very few choices actually in Manzanillo. Mima's is close to the "supermarket" across from Maxi's and the owner chef is a very nice man who makes an excellent corn shelled empanada for only something like 800 colones!...More

A real Caribbean authentic fusion culinary experience and great prices! The wait times can be a bit long, but it's worth it for the arroz con pollo and Caribbean chicken.

This place has no frills but delivers great quality local food at a reasonable price. The Gallo Pinto was the best I've had in over 8-weeks in Central America. Thoroughly authentic Soda run by a charming local man. Back there tomorrow for more!

During our 10 day stay, it became a habit for us to walk to Soda Mima's for late breakfast. The menu is in Spanish, but is easy to figure out. Coffee or hot chocolate will start your day for about $2. My favorite was the...More
