Probably won't be the best Costa Rica food in la Fortuna. But has good services, clean and cheap. You can find breakfast, coffee, sandwich, fruits, lunch. The place has its own parking lot.

We found Soda La Hormiga through Trip Advisor when we just needed to grab a quick lunch. We were NOT disappointed! Quick dining in a locals setting and delicious casada lunch. Only wish we'd found it sooner!
