“This place always makes my Santa Teresa vacation a better one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Every time I come to Santa Teresa I eat 1-2 meals per day here, because I know it's hard to find a place as good as this one. I'ts healthy, fresh, they have great options for meat lovers or vegetarians, their bread is amazing and the desserts are to die for. The people who work there are very nice and they have pretty fast service. I just wish there was a Bakery near my home!

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Though not traditional Costa Rican at all, you can't make a trip to Santa Teresa without stopping in here. Excellent pastries and breakfasts. Haven't tried lunch or dinner, but I'm sure they are fantastic as well.

PS - the A/C cranks in here!

“In one word...PERFECT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

This is the number one place in the area! Nice place, always full, delicious food. This is not one of the "authentic" one but after a week or so in costa rica you want "normal" food and this is it. The coffee is perfect too. The prica is a littel bit high but it's worth it.
