Know Us

In a century-old house in the historic center of San José, right in the emblematic Barrio Amón, is located Café Rojo, a restaurant and coffee house . We are a safe space, free of harassment and discrimination, with a cultural agenda of exhibitions and activities. We propose a simple, tasty and healthy culinary experience; inclusive for vegans and people on a gluten-free diet. Our dishes are inspired by the tropical flavors of Vietnamese and Costa Rican food and are made with fresh products, mostly from small local producers. We offer a selection of drinks and coffees with flavors and preparations made by us, as well as our selection of vegan and non-vegan desserts and pastries. We also have a menu of original cocktails and wines to pair with your dishes. We started this adventure in 2014 and since then we open every day convinced of wanting to offer an honest, warm, healthy and flavorful experience.
