This is a charming coffee shop in San Jose, Costa Rica. Really...when you are in Costa Rica, why would you ever want to go to Starbucks? The coffee was really good and the carrot cake was delicious. The owner Coco is a lovely lady who...More

I love this little café for the great coffee, amazing hot chocolate fudge cake and cosy atmosphere. It is the perfect place to relax and read a book or admire the art on the walls. The staff is super friendly and they speak English too.

I was craving a mocha and happened to stop by this place and I'm glad I did. The coffee was reasonably priced and delicious, with plenty on offer. The staff were also lovely. They tried really hard with their English and were a delight.

I have nothing but good to say about this boutique style coffee shop. One of the best kept secrets when in Costa Rica. Tucked away in an area of San Jose which is simply lovely. The service is excellent and the owner makes you feel...More

The other reviews describe this place well, and I echo them. Such friendly service with delicious plates. A Westie roams the cafe, which is enduring, since we have a Westie. Do visit this place!
