This largish pastry shop and cafe is really first class. They describe themselves as a 'Boutique de Pao': they have masses of different breads, rolls, pastries, etc., with more trays coming out from the kitchen all the time. Their croissants are hugh - the biggest...More

They seemed a bit hesitant to take my order but once I communicated all was good. Favorite of locals and right across the street from my hotel.

I couldn't say enough good things about this place. The pastries are very good, the only down side is probably that i ate way too much since everything was so good.

Just around the corner from a number of hotels, this spot had great coffee and FRESH morning pastries, both sweet and savory. Only one staff person spoke some English, but it was still easy to communicate as they were very helpful, despite being busy.

Just had some fantastic bread rolls with tuna and mixta (ham and cheese). The bread was crunchy on the outside and made for a delicious, simple and inexpensive lunch. There must be 50 different pastries and cakes here too for the sweet tooth. Recommended.
