Adorable little bakery nestled in the rain forest. We enjoyed the most delicious, flaky breakfast biscuits with butter and gourmet jellies. We also ordered some of their amazing desserts & pastries. My taste buds could not have been happier. And I was amazed by how reasonable the prices are. A must do in Montezuma.

Love this place. Hot coffee, sweet desserts! Best home-made biscuits in Costa Rica. Stop by, have a cup of Costa Rican coffee and indulge in something sweet while enjoying the serenity of the surrounding canopy!

This sweet little bakery always has vegan treats for us, like almond butter cups filled with rich dark chocolate and oatmeal breakfast cookies. The vegan chocolate chip cookies are NOT to be missed! Plus, French press coffee and coconut milk are not to be missed. Do sit and enjoy the jungle sounds, great conversation, and beautiful flowers. What a special find in Montezuma!

We stopped by last night and enjoyed a number of the fantastic desserts. We had the lemon tart, chocolate peanut butter brownie and the almond tart with chocolate ganache. We took chocolate chip cookies home for breakfast and the biscuits! It was a lovely bakery in the heart of the jungle. Pura Vida!
