This is a great place to grab some higher end things for your kitchen, if you're staying in Samara for a while. Stuff you won't find in the Pali.

I love that I can find all the organic foods I love. I found chia seeds, hulled hemp seeds, dried apricots and cranberries without sulfites or sugar added. I no longer need to schlep them down here in my luggage. :). It's even worth the drive from Nosara. The prices were reasonable too. We enjoyed a strong delicious cup of... More

I have been going to samara for years and remember when they opened originally in the back of the plaza. The shop has a bunch of gluten free options and breads. I have celiac and its a shop that I visit almost daily to get things we need. Great atmosphere and great juices and smoothies.

Staff seemed hurried - even irritated to have to serve a cup of coffee. No food is served here, though there's an adjacent food court with lots of options. Nice selection of health food.

Thank you for your comment. Sorry to hear you didn't have an ideal experience. I feel we have the most incredible staff of all of Samara and they have been with us for many years. Our staff is part of the reason many return - just for them. You must have arrived in an off moment because a positive customer... More

Great little shop and center. You can still buy groceries and smoothies, coffee, juice, but not food. Don't worry though, there are places to get great salads and healthy food throughout the town, including next door.

The digestive smoothie and the ginger lemonade, as well as the kombucha were amazing! Fun products, some raw vegan items, gluten-free breads, fresh farm veg and fruit... Some of their art and clothing was really nice but expensive. You can also find natural care products here. Go check it out!

This is a great shop that offers healthy, organic food, as well as other goods. I came in to have a look around, and we ended up buying some ground coffee and kombucha! Always nice to find booch while traveling.
