We only had one day in Coco Beach, but we LOVED it! Our new friends, Frank anad Debbie brought us to Tico's for breakfast and it was by far the best breakfast we had in our entire time in Costa Rica! Thank you Alfredo and Sandra for the fine service and making us feel like new friends!

Good coffee and great cakes and pastries. Busy, so be ready when it's your turn. Lots of locals, few tourists.

It was excellent! Delicious coffee and a great variety of breads and pastries! The large cinnamon rolls with raisins were my favorite. Coconut balls about the size of a donut, tasted like macaroons.

Got a ham and cheese sandwich on my walk to Auto Mercado. A couple had told me they made excellent sandwiches. I had seen their sandwich and it looked like it was a half pita. Sometimes in CR they call them empanadas with salad. When I was there they didn't have any, didn't want to make one or didn't understand... More

Beautifully place that's best to go to in the morning when the first open and the bread comes right from the oven! Coffee is delicious too!

Stopped here for breakfast one day and not disappointed. The food was outstanding at an incredibly reasonable price. We tried the gallo pinto and a variety of pastries and baked breakfast items. Our favorite was some kind of chicken filled pastry that was surprisingly delicious. Open really early - 5 am.

We walked in this morning on our way to a tour for some tasty treats. We were the only ones in the store and we were completely ignored. We were making our selections and not one but two ticos started helping new patrons without even acknowledging our presence. We walked out. Won't go back.
