We ended up at Panaderia after reading the TripAdvisor reviews and also because it was conveniently located to our condo at Diamante Del Sol. We ate-in once and did a take-out breakfast from here on 3 of our 7 days in Jaco. The eggs were quite good and seemed to be of a better quality than a few other places... More

We came upon this wonderful (outside/covered) bakery by accident. Our rental car's clutch literally broke right in front of the restaurant. What could have turned out to be a disaster was totally salvaged and saved by the KIND wait staff at Panaderia Artesanal. They allowed us to use their phone to call the car rental staff and then we ate... More

I'm sitting down and having my third breakfast in a row and using panaderia's free wireless internet and my only regret is not learning about this place earlier on in my trip! What do you get when you combine a masterful French baker and pastry chef and with local Costa Rican flavors? The answer is 5 star food. The place... More

We had a typical Casada Tico meal of rice and beans, eggs and toast. The price was great, the food very good, hot and delicious.

Located in the "Chuck's WOW" plaza, don't miss this small french bakery in Jaco Beach. All freshly prepared bakery items from bagels to croissants, sweets and a nice variety of freshly made breads. Absolutely heavenly coffee. I have enjoyed Lejano for breakfast several times but fully intend to frequent them again for lunch. Their lunch menu offered wasabi tuna, panini's,... More

We went a couple times during a short trip to Jaco because we were hooked after going there once. The food was fresh, delicious, great value, and the staff were really friendly.

Fantastic coffee and crepes, not to mention breads and other baked delights. Laid back and personable owners. I went here once per day while in town to make sure I got my bread fix to snack on throughout the day. Go here.
