“Homemade bread in a brick oven? What's not to like!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

Bimbo Bread Company has a lot to learn about making killer breads and rolls. Also, if you want a brick oven at your home, this is the place to contract to have it designed and built!

“Delicious sweet treats and hearty bread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2012

We really like their bread, and their cookies are fantastic. But everything is pretty pricey, so we have to plan our purchases accordingly. Also, they only operate 3 days each week, so it can be hard to catch them when they're open.

“Expensive, but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

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.

“Over priced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

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.
