Stayed at Laguna del Coco and had breakfast here every morning. Obviously very convenient since it was at the same place we stayed to sleep, but the breakfast was really good nonetheless.

Lots of different pastries, croissants, and breads, all freshly made every morning (open your window at 4am to get the aromas in - as long as they are not burning the trash that is :-).
Good papaya juice with no sugar added (just papaya, ice, water). Good coffee. Excellent omelet. Excellent seating in secluded shaded area, right on the far end (or beginning) of the beach. You can see the water in between the trees/brush, yet you are still secluded from the sides. Friendly staff. Family owned.

The bar area was not open nor attended; I believe they were in the end of a remodeling session. Locals stopped to get coffee and pastries, so you know if locals stop by it must be good.

food is quite good, of course u can't expect to find bread or pastries hot from the oven but after the microwave action is quite ok.
too bad the less cordiality of the old french lady at the counter...but maybe we r too used to the warmth of central american people by now...

We had rented a home in the hills of Tamarindo in May of 2012 and gladly drove down into town for 15 minutes to pick up some fresh pastries. The bakery has been in business for many decades and the French owner has certainly perfected the baking of typical french bread and pastries with the local available supplies.

It is good to know the shop opens early at or around 6 AM and if you want to make sure you get something, you should soon afterwards show up. Wait until lunch time and the selection will have dwindled to nearly nothing so its certainly a popular place with excellent food.

If you drive into Tamarindo this bakery is located on the right hand side immediately next to the hotel Laguna del Cocodrilo
