This little gem of a spot was our favorite place to grab coffee and breakfast this morning. Joey knows food really well, and does everything he can to make sure his customers are getting the freshest most wholesome food in the area down to every ingredient in what he offers. Love the coffee, fresh bread, fresh juice, YOGURT!, and mini selection of shelf-stable as well as refrigerated products to choose from and cook on your own. We didn't get a chance to have any of his sandwiches but they look and smell delicious.

We loved this little cafe. We sat on the little table inside with air conditioning for a few hours to do work. The owner was really friendly and the coffee was good. The owner was able to explain a little about the coffee trade in Costa Rica. Overall lovely little spot that we would for sure return to on our next trip to Tamarindo. :-)

If you've ever eaten out in Costa Rica, you know how long it takes to get your meal. I was pleasantly surprised that this isn't the case at La Bodega - everything is ready-made, ready-to-go and super delicious! And it's all 100% natural and locally sourced. You can get locally-made pastries, hand-crafted sandwiches or even do some grocery shopping - there's a cold case full of Costa Rican cheeses, yogurts and meats and tons of pantry goods, like pasta. The prices are reasonable. When I was there, the sandwiches were $7 (they are big and very filling) and the cookies were $1.

The owners are really friendly and make you feel so welcome. They have a nice covered outdoor seating area, too.
