We stopped here 3 times during our trip and loved the homemade baked goods and the coffee. I would highly recommend breakfast sandwich #3 (Bacon, Egg and Cheese Bagel)!

The owners are very friendly and all of the food is just delicious! We loved the sandwiches and the bagels but also the vegan cakes. Everything is selfmade and they have a lot of vegan and veggie options. Also the prices are absolutely reasonable. Highly...recommended!More

Kids and I had sandwiches, which were out of this world. The keys to a good sandwich are great bread and fresh ingredients, all of which are offered by La Princesa. The desserts are awesome as well. We loved the cinnamon roll! Check this place...out for lunch OR breakfast!More

Thank you so much for taking your time to give us an excellent review! I try to make the cinnamon rolls as "cinnamony" as possible and of course made with love 😘

We ate here almost every morning during the week we were in Tamarindo. Loved the cinnamon rolls and coffee. Prices were cheaper than other places. We ordered the Caprese sandwich to go and was packed very well. Highly recommend eating here. Very friendly staff.More

It breaks my heart to read that you were unhappy enough to take your time to leave us a review. Yes, we close at 5 pm and of course it's better to be sold out that to have lots of left overs. I bake everything...More

The owner is so sweet and helpful. The sandwiches are huge and everything is very reasonably priced, I got a sandwich and 2 pastries for under $10. I tried the apple bread and cinnamon roll based on other reviews and was not disappointed. The cinnamon...roll was probably the best one I’ve ever had!More
