We made a quick stop past for brekky and it was so yummy. I had a barista coffee which was great and a mushroom flat bread. I won’t lie the food is amazing but meals here do cost more. Do it for Brunch!

Had breakfast here one morning, everything was super fresh and delicious. Definitely stop by and pick up some of their freshly baked bread and pastries. Worth the stop.

Our bread and pastries are freshly baked daily so that might explain why it tastes so good! Thank you for your review and we are super happy you enjoyed your visit!

I would like to clone this place and bring it to my town! Outstanding fresh pastries, croissants, breads, and offers a lovely variety of healthy and fresh breakfast and lunch items. We never had dinner there but I'm sure it's good too!

A popular venue for visitors with lovely food, try their sandwiches or Monday night pizza night. I found their lava cake cold rather than hot, but generally a good place to eat.

Thank you so much! But yes, the lava cake should be hot so next time do please say something to your waiter! Glad you still enjoyed your visit.

Perhaps best food I had in Costa Rica! Great options if you're gluten free (ask them for the bread), and the wine they sell is also excellent. Very kind staff and super fast wifi as well.

Yes you can walk from Tropico Latino to the Bakery. It is less than 1.5km, or a little less than a mile.
