We had breakfast at the Bakery twice on our trip. The iced coffee was excellent, the breakfast burrito a good sized meal. Very comfortable inside- and the music was delightful!

Once we tried this food we couldn't stop. Definitely best breakfast on all of our travels. We made it there daily after yoga for a fresh juice and healthy start breakfast. Then it turned into lunches...then dinners....and PIZZA! Fabulous food and incredible service.

They have amazing fish tacos. Great burgers and their donuts (bombilonis?). Are just so good. Loved stopping in and relaxing in the AC and grabbing a bite

The food there is great, but I enjoy feeling the local vibe when traveling and this place felt super European. The lunch menu is great and portions are fair plus usually very tasty.

My friends and I came here for pastries. I got a large slice of chocolate bundt cake. I ate it over 2 days it was a very large slice. My friend enjoyed the donut and eclairs. My other friend had the triple chocolate cake that was creamy. It was very nice. The seating is good and the decor is great.... More

Central location but EXPENSIVE. Food was good but so overpriced that this felt like a true tourist trap. Wouldn't go again.

We are delighted to hear you liked our food as we put great care on sourcing the best quality groceries for our meals. This does comes at a cost but we still think we are fairly aligned on pricing with other restaurants in Santa Teresa serving both tourists and Costa Rican customers. More

Not always easy to find European style breakfast in Costa Rica, so the Bakery was a welcome change after traveling for some time in Central-America. A shame I didn't get the chance to try everything, because it all looked so good!
