This is a lovely place with delicious food and drinks! The A/C inside is an added bonus to give you a break from the heat. Would go again!

Everything at The Bakery is good. The breakfast is one of the best in town. They have great pizza too. The service is great and bilingual. You can get an amazing bagel, which isn't easy to find in Costa Rica. Eat there!

We needed an early night, and restaurants in Evora don’t open until 7:30pm. We walked hoping to find a bakery in which we could put together a simple meal. We found The Bakery. It was packed with young people sitting at tables, and offered a...More
