“Nice splurge!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

I enjoyed the wholesome food prepared fresh. It was a nice stop along the way on our trip to the beaches on Nicoya Peninsula. It was hard to choose what to buy as all looked mouth-watering. Delicious quiche was easy to pack for our lunch on the road.

“Suprising!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

In the middle of Cobano is an unexpected treat - a French bakery & coffee shop! Truly delightful - excellent Costa Rican coffee made just the way you like it - hot, cold, au lait etc. Also the most delicious baked treats - tarts, cookies, quiche, and more. The owner, Sophia is a warm, interesting host - happy to sit and talk with you and tell you some of the great places to see in the area. Sophia & her boyfriend immigrated from Paris, France & brought their great baking skills with them - we are glad they did!

If you are looking for healthy, organic, and you are watching your calorie intake, this is not the place to be! Everything is mouthwatering and delicious! Hard to make a choice, maybe one of each!!!!

“FINALLY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

After the restaurant "Cafe & Azucar" closed some years ago, there were no place to eat first class quality. Luckily "El artesano del gusto" opened the door and filled the gap.Hope they grow enough as to move to a bigger place and as to open on saturdays.
