The food is good, the location close to everything and the service is awesome, but the coffee is really the best I've had in Jaco! On top of that, it is included if you buy a breakfast platter. A must go to place!

I've been here several times. The main menu is a bit pricey but the tico dishes are reasonable. All the Casado' are excellent and my server Alejandra is awesome. Will be returning many times while I'm here.
