We went here twice during our stay in Tamarindo. Everything from coffee to smoothies to food was delicious! Several paleo and gluten free options. Nice atmosphere. Would highly recommend!

We are a coffeeshop in Tamarindo that serves barista coffee and healthy organic food with a lot of glutenfree options. We make homemade nordic food with lots of flavors and put a honor in always serving quality Costa Rican Coffee. Nordico Coffee House is spacious, have Wifi and AC, so its a nice place to hang out if you need a break from the sun, or just want a place to chill. We also have a nice terrace.
