Piled on eggs, bacon, tomato, queso and a secret spicy sauce on the side. Fresh squeezed oj. Colorful, sweet owner and excellent staff. Great vibes.

We took a day trip from our resort in Playa Conchal to Tamarindo. With our limited Spanish skills, we had a bit of trouble navigating in town but La Bodega was totally worth searching for! It's just a quick walk from the main strip and actually does have a few parking spots out front if needed. The cafe is very quaint with a small deck to sit outside. There were several great choices but I was focused on breakfast and had a delicious omelette. My husband opted for the snapper sandwich which was incredible. I also grabbed banana bread to go - so yummy! But even more than the food and setting the owner, Frank, is one of the coolest people we met in Costa Rica. He's actually originally from the States but is now living his dream by setting up shop in Costa Rica. He was such a gracious and accommodating host. We even forgot our package and he found us on Facebook to say he was holding it. Seriously - how cool was that! We would honestly make a special trip to Tamarindo just for La Bodega next time we make it to Costa Rica. Do yourself a favor and stop to see Frank and get some amazing food!

Just finished my last bite and must say our lunch was superb. My wife and I each had a chicken sandwich with plantain chips. We both agreed that it was the best chicken sandwich we've ever had! I love all things banana and intended on taking some banana bread back to our room. I tried a bite and had to finish it. Outstanding. The service was very quick and wonderful with the prices very very reasonable. Highly recommend!
