This French bakery sells freshly made bread, pastries, sandwiches and other tasty food. Fiona works here and provides fantastic service in Spanish, English, French and Scottish (of course). Highly recommend this place if you are in Cobano looking for quality and are on a budget.

The cafe con leche is fabulous. The pastries are way too good to actually exist! Try their empanadas (could be chicken, veggies and incredibly savory cheese today - tomorrow?).
