My wife and I tried this place a number of times after our morning hike. Loved the laid back setting amidst all the art and crafts. Great hot and cold coffees, great smoothies, great banana pancakes & crepes. Service a bit slow but it's tico time so its all good.

Friendly staff, fresh food, great coffee and tea. Great place to relax in the morning. Beautiful art work by Costa Rican artists, not cheap imports. Air conditioned and wifi available. My favorite is their Latte.

The Coco area has MANY places to find food and refreshment. So, you really need to offer customers outstanding menu choices and great service. That is exactly what Congo Cafe does!!
Open for breakfast thru late lunch, it offers unique lite bites as well as a generous menu of meals, 'soft' drinks such as smoothies, coffees and teas and wonderful desserts or sweet rolls. The prices are mid-range and well worth the cost. You will not be disappointed as they ALSO have a FABULOUS retail area with unique offerings ranging from clothing to jewelry to home decor. DON'T MISS THIS ONE while in Coco!

I go back every time I am in town,

It is a boutique connected to a coffee shop/ café. They had some nice higher end goods. The café served fresh smoothies, and they had good Wi-Fi. Good place to hang out and get your web surfing done. Really classy selection of both food and souvenirs.

Besides having great food and drinks, the shop has wonderful gifts, clothing that is of good quality and style and decor and souvenirs. Usually spend a couple of hours there, eating and browsing around the store.
