So glad to have our bakery. The French and Sourdough breeds are simply the best. You have to get there early because they do run out. My son loves the guava turnovers. A definite stop when heading through San Jaun Bautista.

They even have a few gluten free items. Everything is made fresh daily and well worth the stop. The employees are friendly. The pastries are out of this world good.

This place looks humble both inside and out, but don't be fooled! They have the most amazing fresh bread and baked goods. All of the locals know about this place and can wipe out the supply if you are late. The dark rye is to...More
