Had the omletes... amazing! Also had iced coffee and even for being in Costa Rica it was better then the other great coffee places nearby. A little bit of a walk from the beach but so worth it!

Stopped in to have lunch while in Tamarindo. The menu is limited with sandwiches and salads. I opted for the salad with sea bass. It was good an a healthy portion. Very fresh and organic. I loved the balsamic marinated eggplant that was in it.
