Gallo pinto is a traditional Costa Rican breakfast dish of rice and beans often served alongside eggs, bread, fresh fruit and of course, coffee. La Criollita in San Jose offers a family-friendly setting near the Jade Museum, while couples may prefer the intimate inner patio breakfast at Hotel Grano de Oro. On the Caribbean coast, the gallo pinto may be infused with a hint of coconut, like at Soda Lidia. Bread and Chocolate makes bagels, muffins, and truffles from local cacao, and the excellent breakfast is a must in Puerto Viejo de Limon. Pan Pay is a casual breakfast cafe and a great place to start the day with fresh baked baguettes and an array of pastries including decadent sugar-dusted creme filled croissants not found anywhere else. At the cozy and shady Cafe Rico, the coffee is indeed rich and strong and the breakfast served here is a local favorite.
