This is probably the biggest pasteleria in the area. We found this place by accident. We got a couple sweet bread and cake. They were very good. I will try their cookies next time.

This place is right in the heart of the Historic Center near most of the main drag but it's a welcome distraction and such an experience. You can smell the sugar, butter and bread from the street and walking in is like a palace of...More
