Delicious food-Good size portions -ate there twice - and would go back again. Coffee drinks and fruit smoothies were awesome the bakery is hard to pass up! There was always... More

As I heard a frenzy of chopping in the kitchen as soon as our choices had been taken away, I can only guess that each dish is prepared fresh and in due order. Indeed, every plate was delivered to the tables according to the arrival/ordering time... A well run but in a way not so efficient machine because they could... More

Great little hole in the wall type of place on the edge of town. Delicious inexpensive food with a good vantage point to see the town go by.

The Bakery Cafe is well known for good cofee and pastries. It also serves tasty local dishes, such as variations of fried rice, plantains, with vegetables, chicken, fish. Sandwiches, pasta and other selections are also available. The cafe is small yet pleasant and the service is very friendly and timely.

This is a bustling spot frequented by a lot of the surfing crowd, so there are always a lot of young folks coming and going. There are lots of outdoor seats, but we were able to sit inside and enjoy a bit of cool provided by the air conditioner. The food was good and the service friendly. We'd be happy... More

We ate here several times during our stay in Montezuma. All of the food we ordered was good. We can speak to the omlettes, pancakes, typical Gallo Pinto, and the granola and yogurt breakfast. The coconut bread is delicious and the coffee is very good.

I had Red Thai seafood curry, which was lovely.My friend who is vegan had stuffed potatoes which she found not as tasty or as large a portion as described, or imagined. This was disappointing as mine was so tasty. Would be prepared to try again.....although the service was very slow.

The Bakery in Cabuya just blew our minds away! It's one of those places where everything is made with love and one can sense it in any bite. We had coffee and sweet treats that were just amazing!

The food and service were fantastic but share a meal because they give you enough for two at least! I had the shrimp in white sauce pasta and it was so good that i kept eating long after I should've stopped. The guy working there recommended it to me and he was really nice.
