Centrally located on Dominical’s Main Street, Café Mono Congo offers a great ambiance of expats drawn to its offering of locally-grown coffee, cold-pressed juices, craft beers, light and healthy cuisine and live entertainment.
From under a thatched roof along the banks of Rio Barú, Café Mono Congo serves up a daily grind of healthy lifestyle choices, including fresh vegetable juices and smoothies, Kombucha tea and an array of vegetarian, gluten free and vegan cuisine. While the healthy choices are delicious, the establishment also caters to the sweet tooth of those wanting to step off of the scale for one day, including their famously decadent chocolate papaya pie. The restaurant also has a great all-day breakfast menu which includes favorites like the Tico Burrito and gluten-free banana pancakes, topped with wild honey.
For coffee enthusiasts, Café Mono Congo serves some of the finest coffee in Latin America, produced by the award-winning Santa Rosa 1900 micro-mill. Be sure to indulge in a cup of Café Mono Congo’s ‘Monkey Punch’, featuring Arabica excellence in the form of Red Catuai beans grown in the fertile soil of Costa Rica’s Tarrazu region.
In addition to Café Mono Congo’s obvious palette appeal, live music is another big draw with sunset performances every Thursday and Saturday from local and traveling musicians playing everything from reggae and blues, to pop and jazz.
