The building alone is worth the visit. It's a gorgeous historic building, beautiful inside and out. The sweets, though, are also very tasty. Lots to choose from, handmade, authentic, a little bit on the pricey side but not out of line for handmade goods. We...More

It gets your attention ever since you look at the façade. It really keeps the XIX century look! On the inside is an assortment of sweets from different parts of Mexico. Delicious! Service was ok. Original one is downtown on 5 de mayo.

This place has a very nice display where you can find many typical mexican candies. It's quite expensive and the worse service from the attendants.

What a wonderful place !!! It's so nice to enter that kind of place where time seems to be stopped. So good to see that kind of places still exist in this world where progress and modernity take over all mythical places.

A cute little sweet shop with local specialties! One of them (a local specialty, I can't remember the name) was wonderful. They are stacked up sort of crispy crepes with honey & spices. They were very friendly & helpful!

When friends go go to Mexico City, this is my "you gotta go here" recommendation! It's like stepping through a time portal at this wonderful candy shop!

With its beautifully painted windows and mountains of pastries and sweets displayed behind them, this is one of the most beautiful shops in Mexico City. The sweets are all hand made and of the local variety. A great stop os any tour of Centro Storico.

This place is mentioned in all major guidebooks, and as a lover of dulces/sweets, I had to visit, expecting I'd drop some serious cash here on myself or on gifts for others. Storefront is indeed cute, and since my visit was near Dia de los...More
