We had a very nice experience enjoying a fresh pastry and a natural juice! The Espresso coffee was very tasty and the patio with fresh air and good wifi! Friendly and quick service! Pura Vida! Oh, and the guy that served us speaks 4 languages, and German of course!

Amazing pastries. Friendly staff. Definitely worth the stop. Get the Apfelstrudel with ice cream and sit in this cozy restaurant.

Our guide led us to this spot in the midst of our travels in Costa Rica. I really enjoyed the apple danish! Sooooo good! I love the fact that the owners encouraged us to sit and enjoy our purchases rather than taking it to go and putting more trash into the environment. Very sustainable of them! Very coze spot and...

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
