Came here twice on our week long trip to Costa Rica. Best iced coffee in town. They have a lot of different varieties to choose from. Nachos weren't bad either!

Nothing no special. Good location in La Fortuna. Had a salad that was drenched in dressing almost inedible. Good ceviche and Casado

The food and the service were beyond our expectations, the waiters are super friendly and quick. Highly suggest the pancakes! Super wide menu for breakfast, but they also offer typical cuisine and burritos and such for lunch/dinner.
