Word is this location is soon to be occupied by a new restaurant specializing in "poutan," which I have been told by a sober Quebecois are Canadian french fries served with gravy and cottage cheese.

Dessert-like smoothies combine chocolate, peanut butter and coconut. Lighter, healthier smoothies include cucumber, mint and juices. This place is very clean. Also lots of food, including good choices for vegetarians.

We visited this spot a few times, mainly for batidos and breakfast. The service was always great, and the food is really good.

My husband and I stopped here for breakfast during our visit to San Juan del Sur. My fruit with coconut milk and cinnamon was refreshing and his banana pancakes were amazing! The smoothies, however, were a highlight...huge and delicious...and around $3! Yummy!

Certainly worth spending time at this restaurant. My wife and I had lunch and on another occasion enjoyed a very good smoothie. Great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the atmosphere.
