We just had an incredible breakfast here. Some of the best food and coffee we've had in our 2 weeks in Costa Rica! Our waitress was very nice as well.

My kids and I have eaten here a few times and we are used to the indifferent staff, however the most recent time we arrived, there was literally not one person who made eye contact with us as we entered the place, nor as we stood there obviously waiting for someone to seat us or at least to let us...

Great food, beers and service! Its a nice environment for adults and children. They also offer bread of a very good quality. Just maybe a little bit to pricy.

I love stopping at Panadería Alemana, first, it is a dog friendly place and most of the times I am around with my small dog. The food portions are very large, the flavor of all plates is rustic and better than expected. You can feel love in the place, the ambiance is friendly, the beer assortmet super large and there...

We are not inconditional hamburgers fans but these were very tasty as well as the french fries. As many places in CR the place is full with flies and mosquitoes. We were literally eaten by these insects so do not forget to bring your repellent. German pastry is worth to try.

The bakery has quite a variety of baked goods. The restaurant does the German style schnitzel and wurst very well. Has certain German beers available as well as local brews. Once or twice a month the German butcher comes in with a truckload of German cuts , sausage,hams etc.

Very nice Breakfast in the area. I strongly recomend the Tico Breakfast, with Gallo Pinto, Ceese and Eggs at your taste. A glass of orange juice and a cup of coffe and you are done for the rest od the day. 5 min away from the Liberia Intl Airport.

Yesterday was not our first visit to the German Bakery on our way to Liberia. And certainly not our last one. We ate the Kaese Spaetzle and the Currywurst. Delicious! We also stocked up on Bread. Raisin bread and pumpernickel is our favorite at the German Bakery. We will be back soon!

They've failed to deliver orders, and when they do they just bring you whatever they feel like bringing you - not what you actually ordered. Multiple times now large orders have arrived to us wrong. Once our order was never delivered at all and we had to go all the way to them to pick it up. 5 packs of... More

Dear Kai R, I first want to mention that yesterday’s phone call was the first product related conversation we have had on your complaint. I am not sure if you are aware that for more than twenty years we deliver our goods to Playa Hermosa, twice weekly, but that the goods need to be ordered 24 hours in advance, otherwise... More

Great place when you're craving pumpernickel bread, bratwurst or schnitzel among other things. Very congenial owner makes you feel right at home. Pastry shop offers many mouth-watering selections, all of which live up to your expectations. Nice menu with soups, salads and main courses to suit any craving you're feeling. Convenient stop on the way into Coco from your arrival... More
