This place was really good value, great food, quick friendly service and you can tell a lot of people have been here and loved the place with all the art on the walls. I'd recommend for a budget traveller that wants good local food.

If you lice typical local food without fuzziness you're right with Mima's. The dishes we had were delicious, freshly served and reasonably priced. The location is very simple in a backyard, but the owners are very friendly.

Great place to grab a typical Costa Rican breakfast of eggs, cheese, plantains and gallo pinto! Even has space to park.
