Tried pancakes - were okay, but nothing special. Tried coffee - drunk better in Puerto Viejo. The girl serving us was lovely and kind. Cakes looked delicious, nevertheless we were full, so didn't take any.

We had read about Bread and Chocolate in the guidebook and made a beeline for it on our last day in Costa Rica for breakfast. We weren't disappointed! The homemade peanut butter and jam sandwich was amazing and the drinks were excellent. The atmosphere was...More
