Located on the main drag in Coco, Pata Loco is far enough away from the main touristy area to garner a nice crown of mostly local expats. A must oif you want a great breakfast.

This is absolutely the best breakfast around. The breakfast sausage is so lean and tasty! You can't go wrong by eating here! The owner is so friendly! It's always on our list of places to go when we are in Costa Rica!
