“Great for coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had a great breakfast here! The service was prompt and food was delicious. Make sure to ask for "Costa Rican" coffee. It was great!

“Rain Forest Cafe in La Fortuna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

After spending lots of money eating at different restuartants (that weren't good) we finally found Rain Forest Cafe. Once we discovered the Rain Forest Cafe we went back for breakfest and dinner every night. Rain Forest Cafe is amazing and cheap compared to all the other restaurants we ate at. Especially if you compare the prices to Tabacon Resort which we were staying at. Their coffee is excellent. I always had the Cafe con Leche or Latte. They are excellent for breakfest, lunch and dinner. We came across them when one of the tour companies took us for lunch. We never spent more than approx $7 USD per person. The service is great and so is the food. We usually got "Casados" which is pretty much rice, beans, salad, and some kind of meat. I always got a pinapple juice in water. It is an amazing natural fruit juice. I highly recommend eating at the Rain Forest Cafe!!! Oh and they offer FREE WIFI.

Great coffee and cute little shop. We were going to have lunch and so didn't eat anything, but the cakes looked amazing.

“Good but pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

All food in Costa Rica is expensive but this was worth it. This cafe has great coffee and good pastries. Nice to find here. Easy location central to town square.
