Description: .Cafe Tico is many things: it's a confortable place to sit and enjoy a rich cup of coffee on our shaded patio, or take it to go.Cafe Tico is also a gift shop, we offer a selection of gurmet coffee from small coffee farmers, honeys, jams and hot sauce made in Costa Rica. We home made bread and pastries, all the milk yogurt , butter and cheese that we use are from local farmers.

Many restaurants in Tamarindo are small and seemingly hidden, challenging the diner to find them. This perfectly describes Cafe Tico, a tiny place with outdoor seating fo 15 or so on a patio. But, the food is very good, particularly breakfasts and the coffee. Definitely worth the exploration.

We had several breakfasts at the Cafe Tico over our stay in Tamarindo. The food is very good and service is friendly and quick. The yogurt with granola is tasty and not at all sweet. The fresh fruit wasn’t as ripe as it could have been but was still tasty. The cafe is a great place for a quick and tasty breakfast.

Great service and great food. I’d been searching for a traditional Tico breakfast and found it here. The banana smoothie was amazing too. My husband said they had the best coffee he’s had in Tamarindo

This slowly became our go-to breakfast spot. We stayed at Villa Verde and tried several restaurants in the area.

This place hits a sweet spot for flavor, atmosphere, price, and service.

Try the Tipico and Blended Latte.
