Go to the bakery for their croissants and pastries and breakfasts which are delicious but don't go for dinner. Their dinner options do not hold a candle to their breakfast offerings. I had a burger and fries that weren't very good and my husband ordered the fried avocado tacos that looked great but were horribly salty and inedible. I'm giving... More

I love the cappuccinos. All the baked goods I have eaten are fantastic, almond croissant, cakes and savory breads. The breakfast food is original, well prepared and very tasty. It gets crowded but the turn over is fast.

We have been to the Bakery many times during ours trips to Santa Teresa and haven't been disappointed yet. A huge selection of breakfast, lunch and bakery treats all made using fresh ingredients. We had the all you can eat pizza and was surprised at the variations available.

We decided to stop for lunch on the recommendation of a family friend, sure glad we did! We had a fantastic experience, everything from the atmosphere, the service, to the presentation of the dishes and the general "Costa Rican family" feeling we have been fortunate to have on our vacation here was all part of the package during our visit...

This is a lovely cafe with a varied menu. Fresh fruit salad, pastries, juices and healthy cooked breakfasts. Far too many cakes and biscuits tempting us though. A nice start to the day. Seems a popular spot !

Our breakfast there was the best we had in Costa Rica. Everything fresh and tasty. The best coffee in a coffee country. Not a place to be around locals but a good way to start your day.
