Sacramento’s Downtown and Midtown are home to a gorgeous bouquet of coffee shops and cafes, and La Costa Cafe (701 19th St.) just joined the bunch.

Chef and owner Ignacio Ortega Perez brings his Latin American roots to the menu, which offers pan de elote, tamales, breakfast burritos, and more.

Among the obvious coffee choices like lattes and cappuccinos, other beverage options include a modest variety of teas.

A shelf of jarred dry products is mounted above a counter space, on which baskets of sweet potatoes, watermelons, lemons, and onions sit.

The cafe also features a variety of purchasable items like local produce, hand-assembled florals, and dry goods.

La Costa’s interior is committed to a clean and bright aesthetic, with large tropical plants dispersed throughout to liven it up.

It’s clear that customer comfort + utility was top of mind with its thoughtful array seating options: booths, table tops, window bar stools, and outlets at each station.

The cafe also offers purchasable off-menu items like produce + floral arrangements assembled by Perez’s “other half,” Lys — so adorable it makes us sick (in the best way, of course).

Let us know if you’ve stopped by.
