The surf camp that is the most fun in Costa Rica cannot be without the best food in Costa Rica. Serving what Fodor’s calls “truly astonishing vegetarian food that even a carnivore could love,” Café de la Suerte puts on unforgettable breakfast and lunch fare. Every week, our guests tell us “this is the best granola I’ve ever had.” Put that on top of a bowl of mango, banana, pineapple, papaya and add a little homemade yogurt and some honey and you have a perfect way to start the day. Or, maybe you prefer eggs any style or a stack of banana pancakes with fruit and berry spread plus a variety of fresh squeezed or blended juices and smoothies. Don’t feel guilty, you’ll need the calories for surfing!
Lunches at the Café de la Suerte could be their famous broccoli quiche with scalloped potatoes and green salad, lasagna with garlic bread, Asian style shiitake mushroom, veggie and noodle stir-fry, quesadillas with guacamole, homemade hummus with freshly baked pita pockets, or a variety of sandwiches. Breakfasts and lunches are served to order a la carte at unbelievable “hungry surfer sized portions” or family style all you can eat!
If you are a carnivore, don’t worry. Dinners out to our favorite local restaurants offer slabs of seared yellow fin tuna, filet mignon delicately sliced in an Italian red wine sauce, Brazilian style jerked filet mignon and chicken breast skewers, fish burritos as big as your head, or pollo en salsa Costa Rican style.
If you’re a veggie there are always even better, veggie options… homemade gnocchi sorrentina, Costa Rican patacones, veggie antipasto, beautiful crisp salads, picadillo and much more. We are oh so very serious about good food.
To add cocktails to this culinary adventure, if it tickles your fancy, bring a few bucks with you to dinner for a cold, Costa Rican lager, a bottle of Chilean wine, top shelf margaritas or the best pina colada ever made!
Please let us know ahead of time if you have any food alergies to help us best accommodate your needs. We’d love to guide you through the wonderful cuisine Pavones has to offer!
