The coffee here is fabulous and they do to-go as well. Great espressos and iced drinks. We also had breakfast here one morning and it was so delicious. Well worth the price! We were told about all you can eat pizza on Mondays and we had to check it out. If your looking for a filling and tasty meal you... More

This was our go-to place for the first part of our stay in ST and we must have eaten there 10 times or more. Lovely fresh food, we enjoyed every dish and the coffee was great. The staff are friendly and the place runs efficiently (given how busy it often is). We really enjoyed The Bakery and wouldn't hesitate to... More

Really friendly staff, awesome food, can't go wrong with anything on the menue! Every monday they do an 'all you can eat' pizza night for $10 each. It's so worth it after a long day of surfing!

Great place to have your meals and spend some time. Food are delicious during any meal. It's a surprising quality. You should order the sandwiches, simply tasteful. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner, each meal costs around 14 dollars. Really worth it! Waiters come from different countries, speak many languages and they are completely polite and warm. The mix... More

I have been eating breakfast at the bakery a lot over the past year. It was our go to place before school with our kids and they loved it. Great cappuccinos and fresh juices, big breakfasts and a great variety. The Eggstavaganza breakfast is great and gluten free. I highly recommend you check this place out.

There's a reason this place is always packed. Food is really good but ice coffee is the real winner. More expensive then local sodas but worth it, especially if you can sit inside in the air con!
