“Excellent pastry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We found out about this bakery through our local dive masters and we went there two days in a row.

The coconut ball was delicious but our favorite was this crunchy flatbread looking pastry covered with sprinkled sugar. We also tried their bread pudding but it wasn't as mindblowing as the coconut ball and the crunchy flat pastry.

I wanted to try more but we ran our of time and our sugar capacity!

“Frequent trips are necessary!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We go to the bakery every couple of days to pick up some fresh baking -- cinnamon buns, cinnamon apple twist bread and more. The coconut balls are an absolute must if you are a coconut fiend -- they are fabulous! Somewhat like a huge coconut macaroon. The service is also good, friendly and helpful. And the prices are very affordable.

“Tasty local fast food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012

Fast food here means Costa Rican-style tacos, baked sandwiches, and pastries - all wonderful to eat on the simple patio in front. Everything seemed to be $2 or less and very yummy!
