“Chill atmosphere fresh organic eats & great service”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Super chill place. Organic everything sourced from Costa Rica. Breakfast or lunch. Great sandwiches & vegan treats.

Hidden up the hill a little- worth the walk if you're exploring local places.

GREAT front porch perfect for morning ice coffee.

The owner from NYC- west side of course ;) Stayed for an hour and chatted, he's super cool. So may people dropped in who le I was there. A definite must hit spot during your visit.

“Great food, Greater price, and Greatest company”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Kept comming back for breakfast and lunch since the food was fresh and reasonably priced. All of the products provided are from Costa Rica and local producers only. The owners were very friendly and a wealth of information on the area that gave great advice on places to see that we would otherwise miss. The front porch was my favorite spot to kick back and take in the warm tropical atmosphere of Costa Rica sipping on that wonderful fregrent Costa Rica Coffee. Highly recommended.

“Great sandwiches!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Perfect place for lunch or quick mid-day snack.
Sandwiches are made with fresh products grown locally. La Bodega sells many other organic products, including juices, coffee, and cookies.

Great value for money!

“Chicken salad sandy”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

My brother and I honesty went to la bodega because it was #1 on trip advisor for restaurants in tamarindo...I understand why! Joey the owner was extremely nice and shared some information of where he get his ingredients, all local, sunstainable, and organic. I got the chicken salad sandwich with home made mayo and hibiscus lemonade and my bro got the veggie sandwich with the tea. Honestly both were fantastic. On our way back to flamingo beach I regretted not getting one to go... The wonderful taste lingered for hours. Mmm. A must in tamarindo!!

“Super special gem in Costa Rica with passion in every bite!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We just happened upon this place and it was such an wonderful surprise. The food is organic, healthy, tasty, and completely unexpected! We tried sandwiches, cake, pasta salad, and fresh beverages. The owners are engaging and enthusiastic about sharing their yummy food and happily greeted each guest. Feels like a favorite neighborhood hang out! PS. Their is A/C inside so you won't melt!
