The latest addition to Jacó’s culinary scene is Pane E Vino, originally from the Central Valley. They opened a new location in the El Jardín commercial center just south of Más x Menos.

Classes are held upstairs in Plaza Coral, behind KFC, Mondays and Wednesdays. For more information, call 8971-9157.
