My neighbor took me here last week. I picked a baguette of their french bread and brought it home. We sat and ate it with cheddar cheese and olives. The next night we slathered blue cheese on slices - OMG, it was as if we were back in France. A very nice change from the bread we buy from the bread guy. Both are good, but Escargot's bread is chewy and tasty. I will head back for more.

We happened upon this little "hole in the wall" around the corner from our hotel and were taken aback by the delicious croissants, pain au chocolat and almond pastries we bought. In addition, their coffee and expresso are good, and as we discovered the next day, so is their freshly baked French bread! A lovely bit of Paris in Centro Merida.

This small bakery on Calle 58 is so similar to a bakery in Paris, but of course, the baker is from France. True french pastry, not Mexican style pastry. You can order breads from them and again, they are the best in Merida.

Breakfast, morning tea, afternoon tea, picnic snacks for your days trips or just because they are really, really good. Best croissants in town and if you go early you might just be in time for some fresh out of the oven.
We did find it quite hilarious that on one of our trips there, at a about 10 in the morning, that the Mexican employees were making some quesadillas and ho-ing into them rather than the delicious buttery goodness of the French fare on offer. You can lead a horse to water...

Real butter delights served by an affable baker! He gives away yesterday's breads to anyone in need, so you know you're only buying the freshest when you walk in.
