Unfortunately we found this place on our last day in Costa Rica, I wish we found it sooner! Great food and awesome people! Had the American breakfast with pancakes instead of bread and it was enough food for two people! Definitely recommend.

Great service, very tasty food and good coffee: 10/10. Both our huevos rancheros and the granola with yoghurt were soooo good.

This place had DELICIOUS breakfast! I'm vegan and ate like a king. They had fresh juices, great coffee, and much more. Not to mention the beautiful garden setting with neat creatures, like the local red frogs.

Wow! We shared the Ana Especial, pancakes, coffee, hot chocolate, and fresh juice. This was by far the best breakfast I had while visiting in Costa Rica, and will be remembered as one of the top breakfasts in my life. Roger is kind, attentive, and...More

Visited Cafe Rico a couple of times during our stay in Puerto Viejo. Great coffee, fantastic food (highly recommend the Americano breakfast) and lovely staff. You can also rent bikes there which we did.
