“World's best iced mocha”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We stayed about 12 km from La Fortuna and decided to venture into town. We came across My Coffee and decided to try the iced mocha and the fried plantains. After being home for a month, we still talk about the best iced mocha we have ever had and miss the fried plantain tostadas! Elian, the manager was so kind and helpful; we did not have enough cash to pay for lunch and 10lbs of coffee so he told us to go to the ATM and come back. We returned three more times before leaving for Liberia. Finding My Coffee definitely made part of our trip and the staff was so nice, it made our first experience out of country truly comforting and pleasant.

“High prices, average food”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We came here for breakfast and ended up sharing because we were a little taken aback by the prices. Unfortunately, this is very much the case around La Fortuna.

We shared the American breakfast and were not too impressed. The price didn't seem to equate to portion size and quite simply, it was nothing special.

There is a nice atmosphere and terrace and it's great that there's wifi, but the breakfast didn't stand out at all. It's a nice place to chill out and have a drink nonetheless.

“Don't miss for breakfast!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

First, go for the coffee. The cafe con leche is exceptional. We had the typical CR breakfast (be sure and add the bottled "salsa" to the rice and beans!), which was terrific. Then one of the waiters was helpful and planning our day- even showed us some sites on his computer! What a way to start your day!!
