Amazing smells ! Ordered braid stiffed with cream : filling ( like custard) tasted rancid!!! It was gross! Chocolate muffin: extremely dry. Prob was a week old! Something flaky with strawberry filling: was ok. Not sweet. Totally 2,400 col. Prob like $5 US. Waste of $$$

My husband and I came here for breakfast one morning. The staff at the bakery is so friendly. The pastries are amazing! Try the danishes (cheese was outstanding). Also, the pati was yummy (and a bit spicy too). Coffee was great. We're headed back this morning for more!

We went to this chain of bakeries at least twice. Delicious sweet breads, fruit filled, and pudding filled. Great chicken pie pastries!

As a Canadian, this was an adequate substitute for Tim Horton's while we were in La Fortuna. All of the pastries were about $1 US. The donuts and strudels were amazing.

We came here almost every day for some of the incredible cheese bread and also the sweet bread with cream. This place has a great selection and we came sometimes in the morning and sometimes in the afternoon and it was always fresh. Great food, service and value.

While staying in the area for 4 nights we visited this bakery twice. It was always clean and we never waited in line. We would pick up 2 pastries (for dessert or breakfast, which ever mood strikes) and 1 loaf of sweet cheesy bread for a late night snack in our hotel room. Add 2 bottles of water for a... More

Musmanni is a chain in CR and found in many cities. They sell cheap fresh bread. Coffee is not as cheap but it's pretty good. The bread and various bakery items are pretty good too and large variety. Bakery items are mostly self-serve. I would recommend it for a quick snack or if you need to get in and out... More
