Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: Located on the Penincula de Nicoya, midway between Nosara/Samara in the north and Santa Teresa/Montezuma in the south, the airy Café Santé in San Francisco de Coyote is the perfect place to take a break from the often dusty roads. In addition to Cappuccino, Latte and Espresso, Café Santé offers delicious Milk Shakes and 100% fresh made Fruit and Veggi Smoothies. For lunch chose from a selection of freshly made Salads and whole grain Sandwiches. And if you are looking for a sweet treat try the excellent Cheesecake, the homemade, thickly layered German apple cake or get a Chocolate brownie.

My wife, two toddlers and myself explored south from Samara today. We arrived in San Francisco de Coyote around lunch time. Cafe Sante looked inviting so we gave it a try. This turned out to be a great decision. Our two toddlers were given toys to play with, while we sipped smoothies. I had the banana, coffee and ice cream one - man that was fantastic. The sandwiches didn't disappoint either. I had the chicken sandwich and my wife has the egg and bacon one. Both were piled high with fresh vegetables and complimented with fresh bread. The best sandwich we have had in Costa Rica so far.

When you arrive in tiny little Coyote, you wouldn’t really expect a haute cuisine kitchen, But there on the side is a tiny cosy restaurant called Sante! Heike, the german owner makes great waffles, pancakes, handmade sandwiches (try the rich ham from the mountains) and not to forget, very healthy salads. Everything you choose will have a rich, healthy though great aroma and tasty mix of ingredients. Don’t forget the delicious cakes/nutbars, maybe not so good for your figure but very good for your mind! All very good prised! And you can dipp it of with a green juice (try the one with celery and spinach, lemon and cucommer, ) to get even again! There is also germain bread, in case you mist the bakery in the bigger villages. When I would live in Costa Rica, I would drive miles for Heike's homemade apple pie and these tasty waffles!

This little Cafe was such a treat to find. A great selection of beverages, sandwiches, salads and more. We made many stops here in the week that we were staying in the area.
There’s also a great little boutique with clothing and souvenirs conveniently located just off the cafe. Cafe Sante also has WiFi.
The very friendly owner Heike was most helpful in giving us directions for our day trip adventures. , I would definitely recommend stopping here if you’re in the area.

We just had coffee and a sweet, but the wee dress shop connected to Cafe Sante is unique in the goods she has for sale.

Not only are the treats and coffee worth stopping for at this delightful cafe, but the shop right next door has so many local treasures. A delightful assortment of hand made gifts, clothes, t-shirts, drift-wood art, hats, handbags, sarongs, jewellery, hand painted coconut shells - a veritable treasure trove of high quality goods to browse through!
