Great coffee. Cool, colorful atmosphere. Fantastic, artsy gifts. A really friendly, attentive staff. Needed to get out of the sun for a bit and this was the perfect respite.

Congo Cafe is such a wonderful place for breakfast (I've only had b'fast there). The coffee choices are fabulous - and the rice and beans (which comes with the Congo Tipico) is the absolute best I've ever had. While you wait for your foot, be sure to stroll around the store, the artwork is so beautiful and interesting and unique. There's also a small selection of clothing, in case you're interested.
The service is always A+++, they are always happy and grateful to see you - and even remembered us from last year. I haven't tried lunch there yet, but one day, I will have the pleasure, I'm sure.

The staff was friendly, the food good. We were the only ones there and had to ask for our check several times

Before this experience I never had a bad cup of coffee in Costa Rica. At least acceptable. besides this one. I ordered a latte. I could not believe my eyes when the coffee machine took about 90 seconds to brew 1 shot of espresso. The end result was bitter and tasteless.

The finnest collection of real non-touristy arts and crafts, great coffee and pastries. Some nice beach bags for laddies and jewelry.
