The interior of this bakery is really cute. The bread and cakes are really fresh and excellent. The staff was nice as well. Their coffee is excellent as well. Definitely worth a visit.

We were craving some bakery bread and something sweet, and found exactly what we were looking for! We picked up a banana chocolate chip loaf, a cinnamon toast loaf, bread and cookies...oh the cookies, soooo good! Everything was excellent, a must visit.

It's sort of an out of place bakery and probably too expensive for the locals but that being said, their products are amazing. They have a beautiful brick oven to bake goods perfectly which can't be easy. We love their flat bread, sourdough, and cinnamon crunch surprise bread! I miss it already...

Great fresh-baked bread and other goodies here! True, a little on the expensive side by Nica standards. But also pretty far above the quality of Nica standards. Stop in and treat yourself. And really, if you take a loaf of bread home and heat it up with a little butter (assuming you have a kitchen there), it's a heckuva lot... More

Here is the scoop: All goods are baked in a wood fire hearth. I literally got cookies and coffee everyday. True: for Nica standards it is expensive, but there are many cheap places to go and expensive places to go. Cookies = $1 USD a piece; Coffee = $1.40 a piece.
