Very nice place to have breakfast. Very good coffee, excellent smoothies and possibly the best iced coffee I have ever had. Very good and extremely friendly service. When you go to Puerto Jimenez, don't miss to go there. R. & Je, Austria

Very nice ladies who accommodated my vegan wife (Gallo de pinto, tomatoes, and toast and fresh juice). I had a vegetarian breakfast, which was really good. It wasn’t inexpensive ($20 for both of us), but food and service were good & we would return.

The restaurant is quite simple. We ordered coffee, smoothies and cakes. The smoothies were fantastic! The service personnel didn’t speak English.
