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.

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.

When it was just a bakery for pastries and coffee it was superb, now that it is a restaurant the food was very poor and the pastries were really bad. Not a good restaurant for food and unfortunately the quality of the pastries went down!!

I live in Liberia and enjoy stopping at the German Bakery on my way to beach destinations. They always have delicious bread and pastries, and their coffee is yummy. I highly recommend the German Bakery!
