“Very bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

I spent 20 minutes waiting for the waiter and he never show the intention to take our order. The restaurant was not full, and during the 20 minutes he even went a few times to the other tables with foreign tourist eating. Finally I decided to leave with my friends and have some breakfast downtown. Not so nice atmosphere, but lower prices, same or better food quality and a lot better attention.

“Tasty treats for takeaway.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Many a morning, we picked up croissants, banana bread, or caramel rolls to enjoy by the seaside. Decent prices and hearty portions.

“Quality Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Excellent food overall. All the baked goods and coffee were delicious! Good service and free WIFI as well. Parking can be difficult on busy days in Puerto Viejo.

“Overpriced and disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I may have hit this place at the wrong time because everything was off. The service as well as the quality of the food. Loaves of bread for sale looked ok, but the sandwich I had was ridiculously lacking in quantity and quality.

“Yummy, but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Everything we ate here was delicious, but it was too expensive. For $6, you get a sandwich but no side. At Bread and Chocolate, you could get a sandwich and side for $5-6. Here, we ate the burger, which was really red in the center, but delicious with the grilled onions. The tuna melt was perfect on the baguette, but not as good at the chicken salad on croissant. We also got a piece of banana bread and chocolate bread. Both were delicious.
