A wonderful little place, we stopped here before being picked up for a tour. Every plate that was walked by looked great, and the dishes we were served were fresh and flavorful. Worth a stop for breakfast for sure.

The Kristina breakfast sandwich was magnificent. Farm fresh eggs with local smoked trout is every foodies dream. Best Costa Rica meal to date. Lovely staff. And the little grocery store attached sells many local products.

We had a very nice breakfast here. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It feels a little off the beaten path but it's very close to downtown Tamarindo.
