“Really Good for Lunch!”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We had an excellent lunch here, and a nice chat with the friendly Canadian owner. (I guess we Canadians can just somehow seem to find each other!). This location was along our walk route from our hotel to the beach, so we stopped there in the mornings for a coffee and pastry sometimes ... for lunch ... and also for a late-afternoon / before dinner snack on the way back from the beach. Prices were good; food was fresh and very well prepared.

“Great fresh baked goods”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Everything we bought from here was delicious. Empanadas, cinnamon rolls a nd bread were divine. Also, very friendly personnel. We did not receive such service at the other bakery down the road. Try this place for sure!

“Bravo! Great Ice Cream and Baked goods”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Run by a friendly Montréalaise, this bakery is the real deal. The service is fast, the food is terrific. Take a break from the beach and get some terrific cinnamon rolls. My kids were really happy with the ice cream and wished we could go back long after we were on the road to the Pan American highway. There are a couple of parking spots out front, but its just a short walk from the beach so you will have no guilt after surfing and walking when you order a double cone and something yummy from the baked goods (its all fuel right!).
