Description: Cafe Rojo offers a lunch special and a vegan/vegetarian option every day. We use seasonal produce from the local farmer's markets in our world-cuisine inspired dishes. Simple food made with care and imagination. Located in a typical old Barrio Amon house, which we share with bookshop Duluoz, Cafe Rojo is a good place to spend the afternoon and escape the bustle of downtown San Jose. Our coffee is from Santa Maria de Dota, Tarrazu, and produced by a carbon neutral cooperative. We also offer smoothies and fresh fruit drinks, sandwiches and artisan bakery.

Amazing food and amazing portions! Very good value for money as well by Costa Rican standards. The staff were so friendly and helpful and sorted everything for us to come and collect the food for takeaway. We wish we hadn't discovered this place on our last day in San Jose as it has been some of the best food we have eaten in Costa Rica and is as good as some of the best Vietnamese food we have eaten anywhere else in the world!

Had a delicious dinner here. We all chose the Vietnamese noodle dish. I ordered mine with chicken, another girl got the mushrooms, and our other friend chose the third option. They have different sauces you can add on top of the greens in your bowl. We ordered 3 different deserts too. The carrot cake and rosemary cookie were okay but I loved the passion fruit tart. I didn’t see alcohol on the menu, but they do have glasses of Sauvignon Blanc at a fair price. Bilingual staff and they also have coffee & juices. Highly recommend!

Food was delicious and the staff very friendly! It’s a cool place to sit alone, with friends or for families. It’s also a good working environment. Loved it. Would definitely come back.

Gorgeous little place with a wonderfully laid back vibe, friendly staff and the tastiest food that makes you feel you're doing yourself and the planet good. Impressively/pleasingly they use washable straws made of metal with a rubber top. Amazing.
