Great fruit & protein breakfast at a very affordable rate. A nice little family run open air spot up a small street right off of the main beach drag.

Amazing! Can't say enough about this place. Once you find it, you will be back! Tucked away on a small road. Best smoothies ever. If you come here get the smoothie - the one with frozen fruit. We had blackberry/pina and blackberry/strawberry. For breakfast we had the Tropical pancakes - so delicious and so much food! We returned for lunch... More

We had good Tico food at Ensuenos, mostly breakfast. Good, friendly service and tasty, home-made food. Well located.

We visited the Cafe for breakfast. The map on the TripAdvisor page for this restaurant is not correct. We drove the road along the river as the map indicated quite a ways and decided we'd missed it. It is actually in the opposite direction. Follow the main street of Dominical as it heads to the beach, at the Y veer... More

I have enjoyed meals from the staff at cafe Ensuenos for a long time. I consider this place home away from home! I enter, and they know what to cook me, without looking at the menu, and always been a good tasty plate! The smoothies are the best, and if you ask to get it to go, better ask for... More

We found this place on our last day in Costa Rica....so sorry we didn't come sooner! The coffee was great and so was the food. I ordered an omelette with maduros (sweet plantains), which is a personal favorite of mine but not on the menu, and they made it for me. It was so good. My husband ordered scrambled eggs... More

Literally, I'm not joking. Great place to escape the heat of mid day with a smoothie so thick you need a spoon. Great breakfast too!

After a long surf session this little Cafe is close to the beach, and close to highway 34. Their prices are good and the food is home cooked. Great burgers fajitas chicken all delicious. But most of all I love the Mocoha Frio is certainly a treat. Very friendly service as well.

The best coffee grown and managed by a WOMEN! In a place where you usually only find instant coffee, a nice cup of coffee with breakfast or lunch or a hearty, healthy and delicious smoothie... any combo of fruit for the same price!!! Worth every penny!! Located right behind Domilocos!!
