Can't comment on the food, but the cappuccinos are really good! It was quite busy in this cafe when we went but we were served quickly which was great. Definitely a must visit for awesome coffee in La fortuna.

We live in England and thought it was as expensive if not more than in the U.K. We ordered 2 quesadillas and paid 12000 colones which is almost £20 or $28 for a very thin quesadilla with almost no chicken or cheese and...

We were hoping for a good costa rican breakfast experience but found this to be the usual fare. What we got also was ok and not that wonderful.
