“Overrated”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We went for breakfast, the juices were good and fresh but the pastries tasted everything but French. The croissant was very salty and the pastry was really greasy. Get a feeling that this place is only rated highly due to a lack of options in Rurrenabaque.

“A great treat in Rurrenabaque - don't miss it”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

What is available at what time is a bit of pot luck, but such a nice find after weeks of bland Bolivian breakfasts. Really cheap, so go early and grab some for lunch if you don't want it for breakfast!

“Delicious bread”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

If you want to have a nice breakfast you definetely have to get your bread from this place. We recommend the 'pan de tomate' and the 'pan frances', but all the bread is actually nice. If you want to have enough choice, be sure to visit before 8.45h or you have to be lucky. We have been getting our bread here for 2 months now and we notice that if you go later, your choice is limited.

“excellent.”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

get there early to get the best selection. buy extra for lunch! owner lamented that because many hotels provide breakfast his clientle is declining. well worth stopping by even if this is the case in your hotel. also he has real coffee, though not espresso.
