We at breakfast twice at Idea Connection and they breakfasts were great. Don’t order based on price though, you’ll have way too much food. Fresh fruit with granola and homemade yogurt; croissant with peanut butter and jam. The coffee was perfect. Also, they have good...More

We watched the World Cup over a glass of limonada and a croissant sandwich that was to die for. The setting is fabulous, as well. Loved every aspect of it.

This place offers a nice selection of foods, a lovely garden setting and good location. The pastries are made fresh every day. You can sit and relax or if you’re on your way somewhere you can get coffee and a pastry to go “para llevar”....More

What I can recommend and got every morning I was in San Pedro is a delicious cappuccino, croissant, pan de chocolate, daily bread with marmalade or the pizza! All super good!

This is a perfect option for food in San Pedro. The Guatemalan-Italian owners are great people and really care for high food quality and service. The pasta is amazing and the pain au chocolat are not to be missed!

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We were also disappointed because the night was cooler than usual, so the chilly temperatures caused the croissants to take a half-hour longer to rise. Artisinal bakeries are not like industrial bakeries - occasionally there are hiccups...More
