“This is my favorite secret in Montezuma!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This place is tops in my book! Great food, friendly service, just off the beach, wildlife spectacular, and great conversation and a good place to meet people. The owner and his son were a joy to get to know and the help is just fun to be around. These people really put their guests first! I LOVE the Vegetarian Omelet and they have Outstanding Coffee! These guys are 5 Stars all the way! Thanks Amigos!

“Pancakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

The chocolate pancakes were definitely the best pancakes in Montezuma. Get one of their massive shakes, and go early to try the banana bread before they run out!

“Greatest Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The omelet and pancakes were wonderful. One of the few restaurants regularly open before and after the quake. The owner, Luis, and waiter, Roberto engaged in conversation with us and were very accomodating. The food was delicious and fresh. The restaurant sits just a small walk up from the beach. We felt welcomed and they remembered us after our first visit and would greet us in town. Great place!

“Nice location overlooking Montezuma beach with entertaining monkeys”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

This restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. The restaurant staff don't speak English. There is a menu, but not everything is available. Our best memory is that for half of the items we tried to order from the menu, the reply was " not possible", the only English they seemed to know, so it reminded us of a "Saturday Night Live" episode. Food was pretty good and reasonably priced. Cash only.

“One menu and one wonderful meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

The morning we ate at the Bakery Cafe, the waiter had to share their single menu with three other parties. I began wondering what we were getting ourselves into at that point. Despite the sharing of the menu, we were pleased with the service and the food they prepared. The meal was visually pleasing and tasty. Each of us had a different entree and we enjoyed tasting a little of the many offerings of the Bakery Cafe. It is a wonderful place for breakfast, although if you are wanting your food or beverages in a hurry, you may find yourself disappointed. This is Costa Rica, and they operate on Tico time. The morning we were at the Bakery Cafe, our waiter explained that the cook had been up late the night before and was running a little slow. The wait was worth it though..
