If you are like me, the sun comes up and you wake up. That’s usually around 5:30AM here in Tamarindo. Apart from a few stragglers trying to find a bed after a rough night on the town, the area is pretty quiet and there is no place to get anything to eat or a coffee. Subway and Cafe Nari open at 7AM.
Now Tamarindo bakery, Panaderia La Principal is open for business in the space near Voodoo Lounge and the Kid’s Park that at one time was a steak house.
Panaderia La Principal is the same bakery that is located on the corner in Huacas, and they serve up all kinds of pastries including different types of empanadas, cangrejos, etc. The food is excellent and I love that it is open to grab a coffee on the way for a surf.
