“The best empanadas in uvita”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

I stopped in here every other day or so to get empanadas. they are the best in Uvita.

I didn't try the pizza or the bagels so can't comment. Croissants were a little dry and the bread was just ok. For me, the best bread in town is the ciabatta bread that they make fresh each day at BM supermarket.

Overall, highly recommended for empanadas.

“Nothing very special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2014

Found better bread at the supermarket in Uvita. The pizza looked a little dry and the pastries did not look all that appetizing. Although the donuts did look good, did not purchase them when we stopped in for bread and desert.

“Pastry & Pizza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

Didn't try the pizza, which was also sold by the slice as it was almost closing time. Purchased some pastries which were average. Staff were very friendly and polite.

“Baked empanadas !! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014 via mobile

Super fresh naked empanadas are such a treat compared to the traditional super deep fried Costa Rican version !
The bagels suck compared to say New York City, but Uvita is a long way from
NYC and when you live in the southern zone and are craving a bagel, the baker bean delivers !

“yummy bagels and pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

We arrived in Uvita and grabbed lunch here, the bagels were super tasty. They gave us a pizza menu and told us they'd deliver to our hostel, so the next night we ordered two pizzas and they were delicious! great cheap eat!
