Fresh Bagels in Costa Rica

The Story of a Bagel Kitchen

At Bagel Kitchen Costa Rica we bake our delicious varieties of bagels fresh daily, using only all-natural ingredients. From our homemade jams created with local fruits to our savory bagel sandwiches loaded with fresh veggies and meats, we take the time to make them perfect in every bite. Now, with 2 locations to serve you in Potrero & Playa Grande. This is our story…

Costa Rica Bound

During a three week RV trip from Iowa to Alaska in May of 2015, we reconnected with younger versions of ourselves – the dreamers, the entrepreneurs, and wanderlusters. We knew we were living a blessed life and we were truly grateful for all we had. But, we were also feeling restless and bogged down by all that we had. We yearned for adventure, a different way of life, and a simpler, more authentic existence that gave us more quality time together.

In December 2016, after 6 months of preparation, we took the plunge. We left our jobs, rented our house, sold most of our belongings and took a huge risk in order to have the adventure of a lifetime and set a course for a new way of living.

After settling in to our new home in Costa Rica, we began experimenting with bagel recipes to fill the gap in the community – no bagels anywhere! It wasn’t long before kitchen experiments turned into a tiny business providing fresh bagels to friends. Then, it was more than friends – then, Bagel Kitchen Costa Rica was born. We opened our first shop in beautiful Playa Grande, mere meters from the sand. Roughly a year later, our 2nd location in Potrero opened to serve the bustling family community of Surfside.

We still find time to appreciate the Pura Vida lifestyle we sought, live more simply & even catch waves every chance we get. Come by and see us!
