Like REAL croissants? Avocado toast on fresh baked bread? Fresh roasted coffee? Mango cake? Everything is wonderful here. Take a break from the beach and get lunch. Go after dinner for dessert. Get up the next day for coffee and breakfast. Never leave.

Great baked goods, sandwiches and salads. Casual and quirky with the front outdoor seating which provided the best people watching. Was always a hard decision whether to enjoy coffee on the deck of my lodging or head to the Bakery. Why not both! The visiting...More

I was pleasantly surprised to find a bakery of such quality in dusty old Mal Pais area. We enjoyed a number of different pastries and were not disappointed once. Great service. Always busy. Terrific spot. If driving, parking is located behind the building.
