“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Though not traditional Costa Rican at all, you can't make a trip to Santa Teresa without stopping in here. Excellent pastries and breakfasts. Haven't tried lunch or dinner, but I'm sure they are fantastic as well.

PS - the A/C cranks in here!

“In one word...PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This is the number one place in the area! Nice place, always full, delicious food. This is not one of the "authentic" one but after a week or so in costa rica you want "normal" food and this is it. The coffee is perfect too. The prica is a littel bit high but it's worth it.

“Everything was delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Try the pineapple watermelon smoothie. So good. The baked goods were delicious too, although I honeslty did not eat here enough to comment on everything. Had a passion fruit cheesecake with a friend, she loved it.

“Could not stop eating here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We stayed in Mal Pais for our honeymoon 10 days and found ourselves here almost every day for one of our meals. We loved the French toast with nutella and coconut, so yuuum! Their sandwiches were also delish!
