We stayed 3 days in San José/Heredia and we came every morning to have a great typical costa rican breakfast. The owners are so lovely and take the time to explain you how you can combine your breakfast. (of course in spanish :-)) You can...really see, that they enjoy if you enjoy. They have been so honestly happy, when we came the second and of course also the third day. If you want to have a typical breakfast with delicious coffee or a great hot chocolate with only Ticos around you, definately go to Leyendas! You will love it!More

This is one of the best finds in San Jose! My family and I enjoyed an amazing experience in a treasure of a restaurant. The staff are friendly and hospitable, the food is flavorful Costa Rican fare. The ambiance is relaxed and welcoming. Do yourself...a favor and enjoy this gem!More

Even though the place is near one of Heredia's busiests streets, once you get in you feel you entered a place where time just stopped. Memories from old would come to your mind and you will embrace the Costa Rica of early XX century. Food...is good. Try the "Pinto con Huevos Rancheros", you will not be disappointed. Fresh salsa greets a couple of eggs cooked to your taste, with a good portion of Pinto and sour cream. Don't forget the plantains... Start your morning Big! The crew is helpful and willing to prepare anything according to your instructions.More

This is one of my favorite weekend breakfast and weekday lunch special restaurants. I love the food and visit often. The food is good homemade meals that are healthy and well priced. I've never paid more than 5,000 colones (around 10 U.S. dollars). The menu...is somewhat limited to local dishes such as gallo pinto and omelets for breakfast and casados or chicken lasagna for daily lunch specials but I always receive great service and savory food.More
