We have eaten twice at the Cabuya Bakery and found the food to be just average. We were not going to go back a second time but it had been 2 years since our first meal and our host encouraged us to give it another try. While we frequent the bakery for their bread and brownies, which are good, we will not be going back for a third meal any time soon since there are two other really good restaurants in Cabuya that we really enjoy.

We stopped by the bakery on the way to book a snorkeling tour with Solo Bueno Tours in Cabuya and were treated to a really delicous lunch and yummy smoothies. We split the Chicken Casado and it was excellent - more than enough for two for lunch.

We ordere two smoothies to start and they were the huge and by far the best smoothies we had on our trip. They would have been even better with a splash of rum but the Bakery is not licensed...shame.

The restaurant is really charming and the service was good. We picked up a loaf of freshly baked cheese bread and it was delicious too.

We will definately be back!

Cheers from Canada,

Kevin and Tracy

Visited this place a few times for cold drinks and snacks. Its in a lovely rural setting. The service was attentive and laid back. If we had had more time we would have had a meal here. Will be coming back here next time we are in Cabuya. The sandia en leche is lovely

This cute little place has good fresh baked breads, cakes, stuffed sandwiches and more! The sit down restaurant part is very good. We enjoyed every meal that we had there and the presentation is beautiful! It was our favorite breakfast destination (although dinner was also very good) in the village!

Really good food and nice spot. Very relaxed setting and some of the best pancakes I've had in my life.
Only downfall was the pace of service. I know that things in Costa Rica can be a little lax but this was beyond that. They serve table by table. 3 tables sat all at the same time. Whatever table sat first got all their drinks and food before the second or third table. Then the second table was served all of their drinks and food before we, the third table even got their drinks.
I don't mind waiting but we were the only ones with a child and he just wanted an apple juice. It took 50 minutes to get him the canned apple juice. But the food was good.
