“Yummy & Cheap!”
Reviewed March 25, 2012

Authentic local Costa Rican food. We found this place for breakfast and came back every morning. Loved the huevos rancheros and breakfast for two with coffee came out to $10 plus tip.

“Nice place - good food, good prices”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

We drove past this place while in La Fortuna and decided to check it out. Food was good and cheap prices. Friendly staff and good variety of options on the menu. I would eat there again.

“Tasty and cheap food”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

The "soda" serves primarily local food to very reasonable prices. The food is good and the portions big. However it is not possible to enjoy your meal in silence, because of the nearby road and the television. The service is very friendly though.

“Good food, good prices”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Good option for lunch and dinner. Food is good and the prices are great. We got a casado plate and a taco plate for about 3 colones each. The servers are friendly, too. They gave us a small serving of the rice pudding for free.
