Description: "Ka'Kau has the best breakfast in Costa Rica, it is not typical local food, which is nice and refreshing, as it can be hard to find North American/European breakfast options.They have all day breakfast, cakes, lunch, early dinner and delicious coffee made from a very special blend unique to Ka'Kau. Their bread pudding is life changing and their Banoffe pie needs an honorable mention. Everything is homemade and made fresh daily, including the bread.The owners are Maik, who is a trained pastry chef from Germany but spent many years working in restaurants in London and his lovely wife Beatriz run the place and always welcome guests with a smile.I do not own the restaurant but my husband and I go every Saturday for breakfast and if we can make it for lunch during the week too. Their food is amazing and travelers need to know. we are originally from Canada but currently living in Costa Rica.They even have delicious snacks that we stock up on before we travel around the country, such as muffins, cookies and the best granola.We really hope you visit this place so you can see for yourself and give it the recognition it deserves".

“Best Breakfast in Costa Rica...and Lunch too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

My husband and I visit Costa Rica many times a year and on every trip we go to Ka'Kau

They have the best breakfast (French toast is an absolute must) and lunch,(you have to try their steak sandwich). Plus their coffee is to die for, its made from a special Ka'Kau blend.

Also, there are tons of vegetarian options.

Maik, the owner, is a trained pastry chef, so their desserts are soooo good. Their bread pudding is life changing and their Banoffe pie needs an honorable mention. Everything is homemade and made fresh daily, including the bread.

The owners are Maik and his lovely wife Beatriz, they are super friendly.
