Great food, definitely a must try if you're in the area. Have been there twice so far during our 5 days in Mal Pais.

Great food, typical breakfast fare along with excellent baked goods. Coconut bread was especially delicious. Enjoyed ham and cheese omelet, French toast, and black beans and rice with scrambled eggs.

Being in many places during our two weeks in Costa Rica, this was the worst place so far! We were unfortunately very hungry and thirsty, but we had to wait for even the drinks for almost an hour. The waiter was really unexperienced, also blaiming his staff mates for the delays. We couldn't care less who's fault it was. When... More

Stopped by because we were going hiking and needed lunch to bring with us. The little pizzas were so good we went back twice. The girl who works the cash register mornings and afternoon is so nice and sweet. We didn't sit and eat there but what I saw looked delicious. Don't walk on by stop in.

Food is fresh and bread is (as you would expect at a place named the Bakery) amazing. Tuna fish sandwich was open faced, which was unexpected but a pretty good sandwich. Coffee is $$$ (almost as much as the sandwiches) but was good. Great food, fair value.

The food here was decent, average prices and tasty enough. The smoothies/milkshakes are really good. The monkeys come in the mornings, and we also saw a coati. It's really cool but also sad because humans should not feed the wildlife in this manner. There are plenty of opportunities to see the monkeys in the wild. As with most restaurants in... More

If you haven't seen monkeys in Costa Rica, this is the place for lunch to see them! Love the drinks and turnovers, I had the ceviche one day and it was pretty fishy so I was a little disappointed about that.

If you want good coffee and nice, mostly french, pastries this is the place to go! Ligh, comfy and 'clean' athmosphere. You need some patience tough. We ad to wait before order and to get the bill. And when ordering several things we got them one by one. Some of the personell were running their legs off. So the place... More

Had lunch with three friends. The menu don't have any photos so I wasn't sure what to expect when I order. But the plate presentation was as good as the flavor of the food. I highly recommend the beet salad.
