I am not a vegetarian, but I tried the veggie burger here. It was quite good. The location is cool, since you are RIGHT on the Baru River where it empties into the Pacific. The staff were all VERY friendly. My chai drink was amazing.

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.
