A great place to visit when staying in Santa Teresa. Fresh products, large choice, very tasty... probably one of the nicest place in Santa teresa. We regret not to go there from day one, and just enjoyed the pastries before. Highly recomended !

Thank you so much, it warms our hearts when customers notice the efforts we make in sourcing fresh and good quality ingredients! As for the pastries maybe you were saved from too many extra holiday calories by not coming from day one! :)

The thing I look forward to the most about coming to Santa T is going to The Bakery for breakfast! Delicious food, coffee, and pastries. The breakfast burrito is a must!
