Amazing waffles and great coffee! We visited twice during our stay in Tamarindo and enjoyed the Churro Waffle and the famous Waffle Monkey.

We had a waffle made with Nutella, peanut butter and walnuts baked right into the waffle. It was amazing! Sat at a table on the beach and ate our breakfast while listening to the waves crash. Awesome vibe, great place.

If you want a decent coffee in Tamarindo, this is the place to visit. Great quality coffee, and run by a lovely, laid back, helpful Aussie couple.
