Anything you pick from the menu is super tasty. The staff is very friendly and always helps you with a smile. I always try to stop there on the way to Liberia! The only reason I gave it an Average for Atmosphere was that they had the TV blasting with the CR news and there was only us two and... More

We picked up a loaf of whole grain bread for sandwiches at this bakery to go along with our Liberian made Gouda cheese. We didn't want to eat out 3xs a day and this stop saved us time and money. It has a full restaurant in children's playground such a great start for people with kids. I enjoyed a great... More

yummy snacks found at this pit stop along the way from La Fortuna back to Liberia. I loved the macadamia nuts.

Although it is a bit out of the way when travelling by public transport, this was worth the journey. My wife and I both had the Vegetarian Sandwich ($7 each) which was very big, and tasted fabulous. The service was very friendly and attentive, completed with a lovely atmosphere. The only thing that was a bit annoying was the flies!

I'm surprised by some of the negative reviews. We ate here three times in the last month as we shuttled about the region. Each meal was very good. The bread is terrific and a simple thing like a tuna sandwich was awesome. It was huge and we gulped it down. Service was fine. Smoothies and other drinks were good. Prices... More

I came to this bakery when it started several years ago the bread, pastries and all the desserts they offered were awesome. However, today was the first time I came with the family expecting the same quality and flavors this place set up on our memories long ago. What a disappointment the bakery is no where near what it was... More

There is no reason to visit here. There are endless places to eat in Costa Rica that have better food, better atmosphere and better prices. This place gets a lot of hype on Trip Advisor, which prompted our visit, but our experience failed to live up to any of the positive reviews. The baked goods looked food, but nothing outstanding....

This was such a surprise!!! The schnitzel and goulash were as good as my mother in law's. The selection of beer and wine would make any German proud.
