This cute little cafe is nestled inside the National Theatre. It cost $11 to tour the theatre but the café is free to dine in. So lovely. Gold décor everywhere and the BEST mochas and lattes we’ve ever had. Top it off with a chocolate coffee cake and we were in hog heaven.

This was a little pricey - $15 USD for two specialty coffees and the cake, but WELL WORTH IT!

Located right off the Plaza in the Theater building, it is classy and transports you to a bit of time that is congruent with a sense of leisure you long for in the busy downtown. Having lunch as I gazed out the window was a lovely afternoon that gave me a great sense of calm. Definitely put this on your schedule even if only for afternoon tea or coffee.

The coffee at Alma de Café is relatively overpriced, but tasty. The interior however takes you to European Vienna and is appealing. But the Café does not offer any WiFi: for tourists, this is not very practical if you want to further plan your day.

Excellent french press coffee and variety of deserts were available. We chose specialty Costa Rican coffee from Limon province, and split a rich chocolate cheese cake. Interesting crowd of young people. Nice murals on the ceiling.

If you have time to linger stop at the Theatre Cafe for a step back in time. There is a wide selection of Costa Rican coffees by region and small meals and pastries. This is the closest you will get to Vienna in Costa Rica.
