Lucky Find in Tamarindo

My boyfriend and I were walking around Tamarindo on a very hot Costa Rica morning last week, looking for a coffee (I’m addicted) and something small for breakfast. We began sweating something fierce very shortly into our walk. In Canada, we’re not used to that type of heat, especially before 9am! We saw a little café called Rumors with the doors closed, which we took as an indicator of air conditioning, and with heat quickly becoming the main thing on our minds, we thought we would give it a try. We were delighted by the air conditioning as soon as we opened the doors. Rumors had a really cool feel (pun intended), with exposed brick walls, live plants throughout the café and varying seating arrangements. The two ladies working were very kind and, luckily for us, spoke English quite well. Not eating a lot of meat, and having a lot of food restrictions due to acid reflux, I was pleasantly surprised by the options on the menu. I ordered a coffee, greek yogurt with honey and oats, and A ordered eggs, bacon and toast with orange juice and vodka (he also ordered Kahlua for my coffee). My first sip of coffee was heavenly. The coffee alone was worth going in for. My yogurt and oats was delicious as well, and A thoroughly enjoyed his eggs and bacon. The pricing was reasonable; comparable to Canada. I would highly recommend visiting Rumors if you are in Tamarindo looking for some good food, good drinks or just for a break from the heat!
