“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

OK, so, it's not particularly Costa Rican, but you have to pop in at the Bakery. Excellent food and drinks, great music, AC and wireless make it a perfect spot for any meal or snack :)

“A good start into the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

They offer an astonishing selection of breakfast, from a simple croissant to pancakes with bananas and so on. It is fun to sit on the terrace - if you are lucky then you can watch Kolibris (there are quite a few flowers around the terrace).

“Great place!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

I really like this place, went there for breakfast and had beautiful waffles, iced tea and coffee... All amazing. We then went for a smoothie and brownie in the afternoon... Really nice. Atmosphere is cool, price is very reasonable, service is a bit sliw but they are all very nice :) highly recommended, must go!

“Best mocha in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Each time I go into The Bakery, I know I am going to be greeted with a big smile! The service is warm and friendly and the baked goods are scrumptious, my personal favorite is the Perfect Cake. If you want the best mocha in town served with a smile~ be sure to ask for Martijn! It is a must in Playa Carmen!
