“Best Bread”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

I visited this bakery two days in a row when I was in San Juan Del Sur. The Banana cake made for an amazing breakfast choice and the flat bread with the rosemary on it was also worth the trip into town.

“Amazing”

You're transported as soon as you walk inside the bakery. The smell hits you and you immediately fall in love with the environment.
Now the bread and products.. That's the best part, it's ALL delicious

“Almost perfect”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

The bread and the bakeries are excellent, the only bad point is the service. The only man working there doesn t know how to say hello, thank you and goodbye, even in spanish ! We went there few times and we really feel like bothering him ! Otherwise the cinamon rolls, the garlic bread and the carrot cake were delicious. Try that as soon as posible !

“Good bread bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I live in San Juan del sur and only come to pan de vida for the occasional loaf of bread. I would come more often if the staff were a more pleasant to deal with. The bread is good, but the service is not.

“It is actually that good...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

I read about Pan de Vida in Lonely Planet and then stumbled upon it while wandering through town. My friend and I decided that we should sample some goodies, and picked out a cinnamon roll, apple cake, and banana bread. And every bite of it was delicious.
