This is an excellent coffee shop. The pastries are different and out of this world. It is clean and the food is consistently good, and you really get service with a smile.

Their sweets are good, we like the turron, and some of the bar cookies. But the coffee we got there at Paseo de las Flores Mall was the worst I have tasted in Costa Rica. Too bitter to drink, we had to dump it. They also did not put all of my order into the bag, so I missed my almond cookies. :( I won't stop there again.

It's owned by an Italian family that has been able to make their business grow maintaing excellence in their products.

The best cakes and pastries you can find in Costa Rica!

They also make chocolates that are very good and have some that are tradition in many families like the easter bunnies and Christmas chocolates.

Must try: marzipan rolls and the cookies.

Although it is true that the prices are a little expensive, it's definitely worth it.

Their pastries have always been a favorite in our family over decades. The cakes and chocolates keep the tradition alive.
