Guy is a wonderful generous spirit who transports you to a French street side cafe with an amazing cup of Paris styled coffee. The absolutely wonderful pastries in a country that pastries are not their forte, it is as only a Frenchman could bake pastries. If you want to be transported stop here.

Everything here is made fresh daily. There is also fresh butter and natilla available, and the coffee is made fresh right in front of your eyes!

We were very much looking forward to getting some great tasting bread here but it didn’t happen. We don’t know what went wrong, but the bread we bought was not very authentic or good. We know good bread and even make it ourselves at home. We did go later in the afternoon and not much choice was left. We ended... More

Whenever I'm in Cahuita, I always stop here for breakfast. In addition to fast friendly service from the staff, the food is out of this world delicious! They have different choices every time. I would eat here every day if I could!

Walk, bike, take a taxi or drive to this bakery. Nice choices of bakery items to beverages. Take a break and enjoy their tasty morsels

I am a local, and frequent this place, probably twice a week. You won't find anything tastier, and the service is spectacular!

Hitting a sweet spot in the midst of Cahuita highway. Just a few tables over looking a gravel parking lot off the busy highway makes for an interesting languid leaning into flaky, crispy éclairs and juicy tres leches. One request: lose the plastic casing for the tres leches and use cardboard, banana leaf or paper packaging instead.

We found this hidden gem half way through our trip. We would pick up breakfast, or pizza and empanadas to take along for a lunch out. The food is delicious, and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend!

I pass several grocers, panderias, and sodas on my 10 mile trip to Guy's French Bakery every week. Why? Mouth watering chiabatta bread, fresh and warm from the oven and the best butter I have ever tasted. It is not unusual for my companion and I to eat one loaf before we leave the bakery and bring another home with... More

Finally some real croissants, pain au chocolat, nice bread and good empanada's. No extreme sugers and not too dry. Lovely to start the day here with a capuccino and something delicious.
