We visited the Cafe for breakfast. The map on the TripAdvisor page for this restaurant is not correct. We drove the road along the river as the map indicated quite a ways and decided we'd missed it. It is actually in the opposite direction. Follow the main street of Dominical as it heads to the beach, at the Y veer... More

I have enjoyed meals from the staff at cafe Ensuenos for a long time. I consider this place home away from home! I enter, and they know what to cook me, without looking at the menu, and always been a good tasty plate! The smoothies are the best, and if you ask to get it to go, better ask for... More

We found this place on our last day in Costa Rica....so sorry we didn't come sooner! The coffee was great and so was the food. I ordered an omelette with maduros (sweet plantains), which is a personal favorite of mine but not on the menu, and they made it for me. It was so good. My husband ordered scrambled eggs... More

Literally, I'm not joking. Great place to escape the heat of mid day with a smoothie so thick you need a spoon. Great breakfast too!

After a long surf session this little Cafe is close to the beach, and close to highway 34. Their prices are good and the food is home cooked. Great burgers fajitas chicken all delicious. But most of all I love the Mocoha Frio is certainly a treat. Very friendly service as well.

The smoothies and breakfasts are great at a reasonable price. Pico de gallo with eggs and pancakes are very good. Run by very nice local family. I would eat there every day if I could.

You will not find a better soda in the whole country! The food is amazing, huge breakfasts with many options, and the smoothies are the best I had in 1 month of travelling Costa Rica. Also incredibly cheap and run by a friendly family. Can't recommend it enough! If you're struggling to find it, it is on the road to... More

This Cafe is great. Good service, sometimes slow but only because of the amount of people that use it! The breakfasts are incredible, along with amazing smoothies and my favourite Mono Loco (banana, coffee and ice cream, warning this will add pounds to your waistline!!!) The staff are friendly and family orientated. There is internet. It isn't really cheap but... More

I have been to Cafe Ensueños every morning since I've been in Dominical and I am blown away every day. The food portions are fair and the quality is on point... And the service is friendly and quick! I definitely recommend coming here for any meal of the day.

The best coffee grown and managed by a WOMEN! In a place where you usually only find instant coffee, a nice cup of coffee with breakfast or lunch or a hearty, healthy and delicious smoothie... any combo of fruit for the same price!!! Worth every penny!! Located right behind Domilocos!!
