“Just OO good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

The cafe con leche is fabulous. The pastries are way too good to actually exist! Try their empanadas (could be chicken, veggies and incredibly savory cheese today - tomorrow?).

“Delicious stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Excellent ! Salé ou sucré, everything is simply good and very honest prices. French patisserie just like in the best boulangeries in Paris, or even better under the sun :) Savourous foods and adorable passionate french couple. When you stop at Cobano, impossible to miss it !!! Bravo Anne sophie & Germain.

“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!
