Vegetarian restaurant and coffee place. We had the vegetarian burritos and a couple of cold brew coffees. Everything was wonderful.

Thanks Eli. We really appreciate the review and it was a pleasure to have you hang with us last month. Glad you liked the breakfast burrito...our take on the traditional costa rican breakfast but in a handy toasted wrap. Looking forward to your next visit!

Description
We serve espresso, tea, cold-pressed juices, smoothies & vegetarian bites for breakfast, lunch or dinner along with craft beers, ciders and wine. Some tasty, healthy treats...that are quick to grab and go. If you are not in a rush, stay a while and chill on the deck watching the river pass while surfing the internet. Pura vida.
