Fodor's Review

Pull up a counter stool or sit at a table on the riverside terrace at this friendly café with creative vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. For breakfast, try a hearty Tico Bowl chock-full of brown rice and pinto beans, topped by a mini-omelet with red peppers, spring onions, local cheeses, tomato, avocado, and plantains—with chipotle sauce on the side. A lighter option is smashed avocados on a toasted bagel with goat cheese sprinkled with pink salt. Vegetable lasagne or burritos are a bargain at $6. Desserts are not only gluten-free, they are addictive: Chocolate Papaya Pie combines dark chocolate with papaya to make a rich mousse filling for a date, almond, and coconut crust. Organic juices, shakes, kombuchas, and herbal teas are on tap, as are a wide selection of local and imported Californian craft beers. It's open 6:30 am to 9 pm daily.
