“Fine for breakfast!”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

The cafe was very authentically Tortuguero! We had a bit of difficulty ordering our eggs "easy over" - so brush up on your Spanish :) The banana bread was fine. Nice people. Small and easy.

“Enjoy!”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This little bakery is located next to Casa Marbella in Tortuguero. Get there early because the banana bread goes fast! And with good reason, all the treats here are excellent and worth a taste (including the coffee), but the banana bread takes the cake! I really do not know what they do here that is different, but there is something about this bread! You could eat a pound of it and still want more! Seriously good stuff!!!

“My idea of fast food”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

This bakery is located right next door to Casa Marbella in the center of Tortuguero town. Its proprietors graciously open at 5 am to enable tourists to purchase delicious banana bread or carrot cake, among other things, prior to embarking on a 6 am canal boat tour. Tasty empanadas are later available for light lunch or snack.

“Best breakfast in town!”
Reviewed 12 February 2013 via mobile

Had breakfast and lunch here during our 2 day stay in tortuguero.

Banana bread (cake) is delicious and fresh, try it! There are a lot of other cakes too.
Breakfast was good and a lot/ more than enough( 1 continental and 1 fruit platter).
Lunch was ok, the small pizza is a medium pizza :) prices are good, especially for tortuguero.

“Morning coffee on the river”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

If you are an early riser as I am, greeting the best time of day, go here to get coffee and a pastry.
