Stopped by for ice cream on a hot afternoon. Hit the spot, although not same as U.S.A. ice cream, seemed more icy then creamy from what we were used to. All in all still good!

We had breakfast here and the food was great and lots of veggie and healthy choices. You can make your own smoothie with lots of different choices and bases. I got the green eggs no ham dish with spinach and quinoa and it was healthy and filling and I made my own smoothie as well. We went back on a... More

Pretty sure the ice cream is made locally and they do use some local flavors, they also serve sandwiches, coffee and other things. Seems to be a meeting spot , they also have wifi.

The only way I can imagine this place gets such a high rating is that the owner must not work there all the time. When she is working the environment is extremely unpleasant. She is consistently rude and passive-aggressive to customers. The food is mediocre at best and the prices are outrageous.

Robin shared her background with us...20 years cooking in France! But the food in her place in Nosara is perfect for the Pura Vida. It is fresh, made in house, locally grown ingredients and packed with flavor. We haven't made it to the ice cream yet but will try that soon.

Good food at decent prices, especially for a vegetarian. The ice cream is also quite good. Buena comida a precios buenos, especialmente para un vegetariano. Los helados son buenos también.

I've never paid so much for a smoothie, over $8.50 and it was nearly inedible. I asked for almond milk, cocoa, banana, and espresso. It came without espresso and was not even cold. i don't know if it was made with ice. they brought hot espresso to dump into it instead of remaking blended with ice. gross. so i drank... More
