The food is delicious and the menus are conveniently in both Spanish and English. A very nice spot for breakfast/brunch/midday coffee break

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!

We always have such an amazing time at The Bakery! By now we have been there for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the food is always delicious. In particular for dinner we want to recommend the Moroccan Chermoula or the home made Gnocchi, just tastes like heaven! For lunch all the sandwiches we tried were good and for the sweet... More

The omelette and burrito were good -- nothing special. They forgot the ham in my omelette and the service was a bit slow. The coffee tasted really good though and the smoothies were delicious! I also saw some other tables get muesli with fruit and yogurt, which looked very good (and big). It didn't blow our minds, but it was... More

Juices where inspiring, today we'll go back to try the smoothies. We had a pizza, was super nice, although a bit overpriced. (We are in Santa Teresa in the end...)
