I planned to meet a friend here for a coffee one night and picked this place as it looked cute and was beside the university Costa Rica. I took a seat beside the door and planned to stay there as it seems comfy and cosy but when my friend arrived the waitress asked if we would like to go to... More

Other reviews have covered the hip and comfortable cafe university vibe, the strong wifi, the pleasant surrounding neighborhood, the warmth of the staff, the care and attention to source local organic foods with the best flavors. For a weary traveler, I found the comforts of home here to rest my mind, and the popping flavors the sooth my soul. I... More

Krakovia is a nice place for couples looking for a non romantic outing, I found the place enjoyable to be with my couple, it leads to nice conversations and a good ambience as well, but the atmosphere is not one of a romantic getaway (which is not bad sometimes you just want to chill and relax without being extremely romantic)....

Since I am Polish at Kracovia I felt like home. The Crew is just amazing! Polish-Costarican family with great traditions along with a group of Costarican friends. The atmosphere of the place clearly shows how much love they put into running the restaurant. Organic food, interesting menu, Language exchange meetings + live music at the terrace makes Kracovia FRESH and... More

This place was recommended to us by our hostel and it was quite magical. It's a little more expensive than other places in San Jose, but if you're tired of casados it's worth it. Also, there are quite a few interesting options for vegetarians! The building has several stories ad seems to have been something else in a past life.... More

Due to having received a business invitation I was heading thru San Jose´s heavy traffic to the San Pedro junction in my car to Kracovia. I´ve possibly passed it several times but never noted the place as being something that looks inviting you to come in. The building has caracter but Kracovia does not seem to have a big part...

If you want to enjoy a relaxed afternoon or evening with a good coffee, desserts or some beers with friends and good conversation in a garden or terrace, this is the place for. I did find prices are a higher than average in comparison to other similar places, but I still recommend it 100%.

Kracovia is a cool spot right by the University of Costa Rica. The best part is going to the backyard/garden area, ordering a local craft beer, and asking for whatever calls your attention on the menu. It's all real good (at least the vegetarian options), so you can't go wrong. The only thing I would improve is the attention. The... More

Came for lunch and the experience was disappointing. Although the decoration and service was good, the food was terrible. I had the tuna and apple wrap and it was like something you could have fixed at home, in a hurry and no cooking skill. It didn't even come with a sauce, so basically it was a tortilla, tuna, lettuce, tomato... More

Great smoothies, salads, pita pizza, a bit expensive. Outdoor patio that is no smoking. Our waiter was very helpful since we did not know any Spanish.
