Good omelettes and great pastries. We've been there regularly for breakfasts in the weekends since we moved to Escazu.

“Great bread and salads”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Went for lunch with a friend and the food was quite good. My friend ordered a salad which she said was delicious and I ordered a sandwich on a croissant also quite good. The pastries we had for dessert were yummy. It is a good option for coffee or lunch if you are in the area, parking can be a problem, though. The place is usually full and the amount of spaces is limited.

“Great place for a brunch”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

It's a great place to go grab a cup of coffee or brunch. Their specialty are pastries and desserts. They make a great pan au chocolat, macaroons, eclairs, etc. The atmosphere is very cozy, and relaxing.

“Finest french bakery in San Jose”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Best chocolate cake. Everything is excellent, no wonder it is always crowded. Too bad they are no longer in Curridabat.
