“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.

A little more pricey than other places in the area but worth it! Very delicious food and baked goods.
