Seeing a Vegatarian option eatery drew us here. After a morning of husband surfing we thought this might be a nice place to have a healthy light bite. We walked in, ordered a juice while we decided what we wante to eat. During that time we were approached by a young man who worked there; he sat down at our... More

Food is awful and made in the microwave but it takes ages to get it. Annoying jesus movies played extremely loud in the "restaurant", fresh squeezed orange juice is made from pulp - we will definitely not go there again. They are religiots.

The food in this small restaurant was OK - nothing special. NOTE: I am not a vegetarian. The service was agonizingly slow with only one person making the food, serving the food, and making the drinks. I waited a LONG time for just my drink. There was one table of five and another solo diner total. A lot of advertising... More

I rarely eat out but if I do I make the trip to Jaco to eat here because everything is fresh and satisfying. Andre is very accommodating and so nice to talk to. I send my guests who inquire about vegetarian restaurants and always feel good about my recommendation.

The Ministry of Music is more than just a great place to eat vegetarian/vegan food. What Andre and his team are doing to benefit the community is admirable and something anyone can support. We wish them great success and will visit again when in Costa Rica.

Of the four times we attempted to eat at the Ministry of Music Cafe, it was closed three times. The hours listed seem to fluctuate based on unknown factors. The lunch we had was very well done. Gorgeous, large, vegetable salad, guacamole, blacks beans, sandwiches, and fresh juices. Friendly service. The owner has an amazing amount of information available on... More

Andre and his Ministry of Music cafe has some great food and the most friendly environment in Jaco. The cashew rap is BOMB along with the smoothies - never would have though that an avocado smoothie would be so good!

This place has the BEST Smoothies in Jaco. Healthy, tasty, and BIG! I've tried several things on the menue and they are all good choices. You can't go wrong here. Good music and always good company. The only REAL Vegetarian food in central Jaco.

We stumbled across this little gem on our way back from Villa Calletas.. there's lots of signs all over town that say "Vegetarian Cafe" but we couldn't find it. Hint: It's on the same street as Taco Bar.. just go down a little further. The salads are HUGE and amazingly delicious. The smoothies ROCK! And the owner is all about... More
