Your time in Santa Teresa is not complete without at least one trip to Zwart. The food is great and the cafe is a perfect place to refuel or chill out.

We had a meal for 5 here and they refused to split the bill and added tax/tip on top regardless of what their sign said. Guy behind the counter was a useless, brainless tool and needs replacing.More

Best cafe to grab a refreshing smoothie and catch up on some downtime reading (your book or theirs!). Environment is welcoming with its books, art decor and friendly people.

Really cool place for lunch or a healthy snack. My husband got a smoothie, and I got a fruit and yogurt bowl. Both were delicious. The environment is very cool. I enjoyed the art, the music, and the friendly cat and dog that hang out...More
