“Love their cookies!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Nice small panaderia (bakery) with a stone oven and nice staff. Their chocolate chip cookies were so good that I went back every morning for more. Yummy!

“Great Bakery!”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Interestingly, we didn't see this in SJDS, but found the franchise in Granada and had coffee and pastries there twice. Excellente!!! The owners are a very sweet younger couple from Canada and Venezuela.

“Good bakery”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We paid this place a visit on our first day in Nicaragua and it was a decent start.
We bought a cinnamon role ($2), a slice of apple cake ($2.5), and their fucacha bread ($3), with the latest being by far the best one. Although all were tasty, the cinnamon role tasted as though it was a couple of days old.
Overall, we were pleased and will be returning for some more fucacha :)

“Such a gem!”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

We visited this bakery several times during our week in SJDS, and loved it each time. The bread was fresh, and kept beautifully. We loved the banana bread, and their version of focaccia was a tasty pre dinner snack. Highly recommend a visit!

“Delicious treats but come early!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

I first acquired some banana bread from here and it left me wanting more! Soft crust and full of flavor. The smell in the place alone is enough to keep me coming back.
