The price is average, and the food is very good. Great place for eating a casado at lunch time if you are in Alajuela

We walked all around the city of Alajuela to find this cafe and unfortunately they are closed. It is very disappointing that all the reviews are good for this place but they were closed!!! No furniture and no tables..

I would say if you want to sample typical Costa Rican food this would be a good choice.Big variety at reasonable prices and all our choices tasted good. Service was friendly. Also nice location to just sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.Highly recommend.
