We were told by some friends of ours that it is to die for....We decided to stop over one afternoon and picked up a few things. Hmmm is was so tasty and so fresh. So we decided that since it was 2 of our friends birthday while we were staying in town that we would have a birthday cake make for them. The chocolate cake was very delicious, thanks for this memorable birthday in Costa Rica.

Just met the Princess this past week. Enjoyed her friendly personality and help with ideas re beaches etc. Her samosas are a great price and a tasty, easy way to take a snack to the beach, back to your accomodation for an easy meal with a glass of wine etc. Very good ice cream and good central location.

Thank MeiselManor

We love this place! Our 14 yr old was looking forward to getting something here everyday! Their baguettes of bread are perfect for lunch sandwiches are brushetta. The cinnamon rolls and strawberry pastries are to die for and the ice cream is perfect on a hot afternoon (everyday!). Cheap and quick, right in town. The girls are always so nice and smiling!

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.
