Freshly cooked breakfasts, sandwiches and juices. My favorite breakfast is the Tico: rice, beans and eggs with bread or tortilla - and it includes a coffee! There is an organic market there every Weds morning and an organic shop next door. Cannot say enough!

Excellent option for those who like to eat healthy food. Good variety of options for lunch. Usually a daily special. Been there a few times and love the fact that they have homemade jams and other items for sale. One-stop shop!

Save yourself some gas. Don't even bother getting there. Bad service, minimal food selection and place.

I love this little gem in San Antonio de Escazu. Fresh, healthy food. Farmer's market ingredients. Wholesome and good. Plus you can take home cheeses, breads, spreads, etc.!
