“Me too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

We ate there several times. The food was excellent.
It has problems with its own success. Service sometimes gets slow because it is so busy.

“Best croissants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

I was very impressed with the quality of croissants and the creamy cappuccinos. Also, the salads are original, healthy and very tasty. To find such a good quality bakery shop in a remote area like Mal Pais is really a treat.

The food here is CRAZY good and the people who run the place are even better. We had breakfast here on Christmas, Feliz Navidad to us.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Wish there were more bakeries in Costa Rica like this one…thought I was in France. I am a croissant snob and loved theirs..also brought home a loaf of freshly baked wheat bread. All the pastries we sampled were delicious. Shared the breakfast burrito that was light and filling all at the same time (and healthy!).

We stopped for lunch after seeing great ratings. Our service, panini and iced coffee was perfect! Suggested it to all of our friends!
