My husband and I decided to try this new place near our home. It was fantastic! The waitress was friendly and able to converse in English or Spanish. We each ordered a different pizza and both agreed it was the best we'd had here. Iguanas Pizzaria is on our short list now! When soccer season revs up, it'll be a great place to watch the game.

Great place to hangout and meet people as they come in for Ana's excellent coffee and many varieties of snacks. Love using this place as a meeting place with friends or new acquaintances while sipping on coffee and relaxing. Ana and her staff are very friendly and ready to serve you or sit around and spend time with you.

1. Great food! Specials of the day rotate among beautifully cooked and presented typical Costa Rican dishes using local ingredients that you may not encounter elsewhere. From a culinary standpoint, these meals are perfection.2. Charming location in a little breezeway, lined and canopied with plants. This is a cool little oasis where it is a pleasure to sit and enjoy a meal.3. Each meal includes a glass of fresh tropical juice as well as a satisfying little bite of dessert.4. Wonderful owner and staff. You will soon feel at home here.5. Serves breakfast, lunch and a late day meal if you arrive in time. Warning: the specials are so great that they go fast. 6. Only one of two locations in town to purchase specialty, locally handcrafted ice cream bars in wonderful and unusual flavors.7. Even the coffee is individually made by the cup with excellent locally grown beans.

Al Gusto

Coffee and fresh juice. French croissants and pastries. You have a lot of different ingredients to make your own sandwich, salad and pasta. We cook with fresh produce to have a good quality and use recyclable packaging to protect the nature.

Good choices. Large burgers and excellent croissants with a number of choices on what you would like to add. Quite popular and full around lunch hour. Not a lot of seating but people are respectful of those waiting for tables. Also baked goods are excellent. Owners are from France and living in Atenas. Good for families as well

La Casita del cafe

A very popular restaurant for locals and tourists alike. It's famous for it's view of the valley and Pacific in the background; it's most busiest during the breakfast time when the view is best. Serves large Tico or American breakfast.

Kay's Postres, Cafe & Restaurante

Kay's Gringo Postres roughly translated means Kay's NorthAmerican Sweets. Kay and her husband, Tom, from South Dakota, started out as a tiny pastry and coffee shop and grew into the only place in Atenas and for miles around that serves real American soul

I visited Atenas with my girlfriend on our now third trip here and we’re told about a Polish Cafe/Restaurant near by. Being Polish I had to try it out. My girlfriend Allison and I popped in one afternoon and met Ania the owner who is originally from Poland, lived in Toronto and now has moved to Costa Rica with her husband and two kids about two years ago. She said they bought Kay’s and cleaned it up, changed the menu and it’s a brand new place now. There’s a great menu with tons of choices for breakfast and lunch. Lots of Gringo choices and also a traditional Polish menu page. They have home made iced tea (sweetened or unsweetened) which is fantastic and refreshing which we had. Our first trip there I tried the Hungarian pancake which is a beef stew wrapped in a potato pancake and comes with 2 sides. Allison has the Cabbage Rolls. Both amazing. We came back a second time with Allisons parents and two of their friends and had Cabbage Stew and the schnitzel which was fantastic and had an egg on top. Before leaving Atenas Allison and I came back a third time to say farewell to Ania and the great ladies who work in the kitchen with her and had pirogies and a Polish sausage. Everything we tried was so authentic and brought me back to my childhood. It tasted exactly like the food my mom used to make. There’s also a huge English book library that lines the inside walls of the restaurant if you want something to read. I can’t say enough great things about this place. The food, service, quality, pricing..... everything was absolutely fantastic. Go and try it....

Balcon de Cafe

Reviewed By Olsen P

El Balcon is a fun place to come sit on the porch and watch the world go by. They offer a wide range of sandwichs and many good German dishes like schnitzel and spicey sausages. Also if you have a sweet tooth they have many pasteries and ice cream offerings including chocolate iced mocha along with sundaes and many fun desserts. They make their own breads daily and are always busy. Note that they do close at 6pm.
