Probably the only bakery in town. They make decent croissants and delicious omelettes. They can also make sandwiches for your diving trip to Coiba.

Love that there is this kind of quality breads/pastries in a little town like Santa Catalina. The lady that runs it is adorable. The prices are fair, and the service is helpful.

While staying in Santa Catalina, we ate food from this bakery/restaurant several times. The baker is from France, so French breads and pastries are a natural. We had delicious pastries, lunches and breakfasts. For breakfast, besides the usual egg and toast, there were huge pancakes and really good crepes, a fresh fruit, yogurt and granola option, and croissants, muffins and cinnamon pastries. We also purchased box lunches to take with us on our boat trip to the waters around Coiba Island. Sandwiches with choices of meat were made with large home made rolls of various flavors. Also included in the boxed lunch was juice and a wonderful fruit cup. Don't plan on eating there for supper as they close about 2 - they're busy baking bread for the next day:-) This place is a must when you go to Santa Catalina!

Loved the Coconut muffins. Service a bit slow for breakfast. If you are rushing to go Diving or waiting for the bus, make sure you leave yourself enough time. Good sandwiches to takeaway if you are heading off diving.
