Had a great brunch/lunch here whilst on holiday in Costa Rica, I had the typical breakfast and my partner had a BLT with egg and cheese, great coffee and good service. Slight error on coffee that was rectified quickly before it was an issue. The...staff are great. I really enjoyed my breakfast, the best typical Costa Rican food I’ve tried. Would have tried lots of the menu woven more time and definitely more of the coffee.More

EVERYTHING tasted good! We sought out a vegetarian option for my daughter for lunch as we drove through Portrero and we were so pleased. The sandwiches on ciabatta bread were not only artistically presented but full of flavor and full of tasty sandwich goodies. I...loved their hot sauce to accompany my Belgian Mess sandwich. The veggie sandwich (forgot the cute name) was delish as well - could be vegan without goat cheese. The Casado satisfied my Tico husband who then ordered 2 doughnuts for dessert! The coffee to accompany these doughnuts was adorably served with three pieces of candied popcorn and was a rich brew. Best doughnuts I’ve had in CR in all my 12 years here. I loved the cream filled, but the chocolate glaze was yum too. Oh, and the Sweet Summer smoothie was a fun burst of flavor and also quite pretty. Staff were kind and gave the food many wonderful touches.More

French toasts, traditional tico breakfast, breakfast sandwich or just a smoothie, doesn't matter what you're up to, Carpe Diem is the place to visit in Playa Potrero, Flamingo Zone, Guanacaste. Own by a lady from Belgium which has a terrific customer service, with a very...professional attitude towards the customers. Meals are fantastic and prices are really fair.More

We have enjoyed this place for a few years now and it is better every year. We enjoy it for a good morning cappuccino or a breakfast sandwich or fruit smoothie.

We stopped every day here after our morning run on the beach for coffee and smoothies. Also tried their sandwiches and cakes. YUM! Everything is home made and fresh, espressos and cappuccinos are the real thing and the service friendly and professional. Well done! May...your business continue to flourish!More

A beautiful little cafe with fresh, delicious food and kind, quick service. Coffee was wonderful; smoothies were delicious and the breakfasts were healthy and hearty. A little oasis patio and a sweet family vibe makes this place a total winner.

Best brownie cake anywhere in the world. And I mean it. We live in New York City with amazing pastry shops, but nothing compares to Emma and Josue's brownie cake. Wonderful coffee shop. Great lattes. Great (big) sandwiches. Well priced. And family owned by a...wonderful couple and their beautiful daughter. Must go!More
