We had arrived late into San Jose that night, settling into our Air Bnb before realizing we were in desperate need of nourishment for our bellies. Without our host around to provide a solid recommendation, we did a quick search on Google nearby locales and luckily came across this very homey cafe. We were greeted by presumably the lovely owner... More

I was craving a mocha and happened to stop by this place and I'm glad I did. The coffee was reasonably priced and delicious, with plenty on offer. The staff were also lovely. They tried really hard with their English and were a delight.

I have nothing but good to say about this boutique style coffee shop. One of the best kept secrets when in Costa Rica. Tucked away in an area of San Jose which is simply lovely. The service is excellent and the owner makes you feel at home and treats customers like family.

The other reviews describe this place well, and I echo them. Such friendly service with delicious plates. A Westie roams the cafe, which is enduring, since we have a Westie. Do visit this place!

This little coffee shop turned to be one of my favourites. It's small, it's nice, the food is great. They have this cool old fashioned decoration (which I loved) that makes it comfy and feel like u are at your grandma's place.... but cooler, plus, they have a white hairy dog called "Latte". There's no way this can't be the... More

This place is amazing. The owner is super sweet, and the coffee shop is adorable. The coffee is delcious. Get the affogada. It's espresso poured over a scoop of ice cream! It reminds me of a cute coffee shop in the US. Love it! I highly recommend it!
