Certainly one of the best cafe's (if not the best) in Santa Elena - and our family ranks it as one of the best ever, anywhere. Great service, food, coffee, croissants, etc. Not to be missed!

I have been staying in Santa Teresa for the past fifteen days...and each day, without fail, I pop into The Bakery for a smoothie, or a glass of wine...they chill their red wine which is wonderful for the heat and humidity of the outside atmosphere...More

The food here is great. So fresh and many healthy options. The qiunoa salad was to die for. The crispy avocado tacos are very good too. The atmosphere is super nice and laid back.

We are always glad to hear we've had a satisfied customer. While we are a bakery with lots of naughty treats we always want to offer healthy and delicious options as well.

Good coffee and baked goods. Way too crowded in the high season. A bit pricey compared to local Sodas and other panaderias.

Good food & dessert but very small portions for what you pay. The girls serving did not give me positive energy, they seem unconcerned with the quality of service.

We loved this place! The food was delicious, the staff spoke English so easy to communicate, the drinks were great too. They had wonderful cold espresso concoctions and icy fruit drinks and their lattes were so good! Highly recommend!!!
