Great, fresh breads. The cookies are fabulous.

The prices, sadly, match the quality. But we go every time we are in San Juan, we'd never skip it.

Although the cookies and loafs of bread were a treat to have while on vacation, the prices were extremely high for Central America. Avoid the Chicago style pizza, it's 3 inches of bread with tomato sauce on top. If you're looking for a Bakery check out Aladdin's on the other side of the main town square.

If you are into baked goods that are top of the line, here it is.
Everyone enjoys the items they bake and they do a lot of them.
Maybe a little high $$ but is the only place like it doing what they do and they do it well.

Wow, I had no idea this level of bakery existed in central america. The bread was fantastic and the cookies were so good they never made it back to the hotel. Who knew such incredible breads could be had in little San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. The service was quaint and friendly and the prices were well worth it!

We always make a stop at this bakery. Their brick oven takes you back in time when baking bread was an art form. The owners are from Chicago. Imagine that.
