We spent a week in Tamarindo working there, and I stopped almost daily to try something different for Breakfast! I definitely loved everything! The customer service is excellent! The owners are great hosts and you have to meet Walter the cat!! :) Try for breakfast...the Shakshuka with their home made bread! All bread and pastries are delicious. Don't miss the Fudge brownie, recommended!!More

We happened upon this little gem and it was totally worth every dime!! There were 4 of us just out exploring before it got too hot out, and we saw some people in here so checked it out, and it was awesome! We had the...omelette sandwich, the poached eggs in the tomato sauce (soooo gooooddd) and a few other items. Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced! Great Job!!More

We only got coffee, but the other food and treats looked really good. This is a cute take-out place with a few tables to sit as well. The cat's name is Walter!

This place is by far the best in Tamarindo. Everything is delicious! The unique sandwiches, the various breakfast, the combinations of juices and smoothies, and the baked breads, buns and sweets. You could come here many times and still have different things. Add the friendly,...caring, friendly service and you'll find yourself coming back for more, time and again. Enjoy!More

If you're looking for Breaking Bread ... it's located on the street behind the Taxi stand in Tamarindo. The street where Super Compro is located and also across from the bikini store "Del Toro"
