We stopped here for a quick snack - I got a nice coffee and delicious fruit cake. Yummy! The girl from the bakery was super nice and advised us where to go swimming in lake Arenal. Definitely worth the stop!

Traditional German fare, nice location, free wifi. We stopped on our way to La Fortuna. Cute cat greeted us and friendly waitress. A bit pricey for what is was, but the food was good and a nice break from rice and beans.

The apple streudel, the creme-filled crumb cake, flaky pastry goodness! German pastries are my favorite, and I was so excited to find this gem in Nuevo Arenal. Go here for great service, coffee, a few souvenirs and to satisfy your sweet tooth!
