Description: Cafe Rojo offers a lunch special and a vegan/vegetarian option every day. We use seasonal produce from the local farmer's markets in our world-cuisine inspired dishes. Simple food made with care and imagination. Located in a typical old Barrio Amon house, which we share with bookshop Duluoz, Cafe Rojo is a good place to spend the afternoon and escape the bustle of downtown San Jose. Our coffee is from Santa Maria de Dota, Tarrazu, and produced by a carbon neutral cooperative. We also offer smoothies and fresh fruit drinks, sandwiches and artisan bakery.

Cafe Rojos is amazing. Aesthetically it's a gorgeous place , beautiful green and it gives a at home cafe feel. The two women that we met that own the place were so warm and funny and they taught us so much about Costa Rica

They cook the food in front of you and the food is so light and yummy. When you walk out you actually feel happy, rejuvenated, full and healthy.

I just really loved this place, I had the vegetarian meat ball dish and it was great. I recommend this place it's friendly, personable, great food and just a really perfect atmosphere!

From the wonderfully kind, bilingual staff to the tasty menu options (including vegan/veget) to the GREAT coffee and tasty treats- everything is homemade, home inspired and made to inspire!! LOVED IT! Food was SO good and the chill fun atmosphere might have been even better!

Life is short. Life is dull. Life is full of pain. But a visit to Cafe Rojo is a chance for something special. Great atmosphere, delightful dishes, pleasant staff, and best of all, they serve a damn fine cup of coffee. It is the perfect place to share a bite with a friend, or cozy up with a book, or just sit back and enjoy the afternoon. Highly recommended!
