Waffles, pancakes, and various other breakfast items are available here, all day long. Our food was good, nothing out of the ordinary. The dishes are pretty large and were served quickly. The service was also good.

I tried this place out for breakfast with my friend and I have to say that it was fsirly average. The service was ok, the food was good but nothing to leap barrels over. I'm not a fan of pancakes or waffles and the typical Costa Rican breakfast of Pinto and eggs is not offered unless Monday - Thursday. You... More

If you are looking for waffles this is the place. They have a very large menu with lots of options of waffles and crepes. They also have other items in their menu like sandwiches, paninis and such. Food is tasty, portion size is below average (which makes it even pricier for what you are getting) and service does need improvement.... More

Tasty waffles, Pancakes and crepes served practically any way you can imagine including gluten free (small extra charge) and celiac kitchen for those allergic to gluten. The local fresh ingredients imaginatively combined to create more flavors than this patron can remember stimulates many palates at just about any hour. I had a classic waffle with the sweet trimmings while my... More

This place still is in business and I have no idea how they do it. The food is nothing especial, the prices are for a high end place and the service is jus Meh. Nothing to write home about. If you want coffee or a quick snack, walk up the street to Multiplaza and go to TeconTe. Same thing, a... More

If your looking for good service and food to match.... Don't go here. Although service in Costa Rica continues to improve from year to year, there are certain places where the owners still don't understand. The food..... Ok but with poor service, seems to leave a bad taste no matter.

far too expensive for the quality of the food and frozen potato patty for hash browns is not the way to go and frankly i wonder how long people will continue to go there

So this is a review for this place as a brunch or coffee place. Never had lunch or dinner here. I've been multiple times with a dog and sat outside. They were really nice about it. Waffles are consistent in flavor and so is the cappuccino. Slightly expensive for coffee and waffles but in line with the area. Service can... More

Great breakfast menu! Delicious! A lot of American and European in it which makes it perfect in my opinion. We went there few times and everything was always fresh and tasty. Delicious coffee! They are not too fast on service but it is very relaxing if you are not in a hurry. Enjoy!
