An amazing treat!

The breads and pastries here are delicious. Everything seemed to be very well prepared and displayed. Their whole grain flax bread is hard to beat; you can't find anything like it in Liberia!

This is a place we stop by almost every time we pass by. If we don't get some brats we definitely get some baked goods. This is a very good choice for a place to eat The food is great and the owner is as well.

Excellent food and service. It is part of the German bakery where they make some of the best bread in Guanacaste.

Stopped here on the way to Tamarindo. Food was pretty good and it has a great atmosphere. Would eat it here again, but had an unusual problem...had to ask 3 times for the bill. Then when I went to pay it took about 10 minutes for them to take my money and give me the change. Waiters didn't seem very... More

We stopped off here for lunch and the pizza's were amazing. Cooked fresh in the outdoor oven, we could watch them chopping the toppings and doing everything from scratch. It was child friendly, with a group of teenagers, smaller children and even a box of puppies that some of the younger children were playing with. We sat outside under the... More

I had the best mojitos here. The waiter took a bit to make them but they were totally worth the wait. The food is pretty good too but I definitely go here for the mojitos

I think this is the same place called "Cafe Europa" . Or maybe the inside part is the bakery and the outside seating area is the Cafe. We had dinner here and it was average at best.

I had great expectations. And it was OK. I had a tuna steak that was good, especially the veggies. My Bavarian beer came chilled and in the propper glass. I splurged and had a couple of sweets. The BienenStich was authentic and the hazelnut cookies, too.

it's like a shrine to gluten. delicious variety of baked goods, served with a smile. They also make a mean sausage and saurkraut plate that you can take on the plane. I've been enjoying the Panaderia Alemana for over 15 years and look forward to visiting again.
