“They have wonderful pastries”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

We saw this patisserie and its pastries on window and couldn't resist. You can order your coffee and point your pastry, eat and drink very quickly. Or you can go upstairs and order there to eat by sitting. But I think in this case you have limited choices.

Pastries are all excellent. There are too much choices and they are cheap. I'll also remember the taste of the "Vegetable and ham sandwich".

“Most Beautiful Pastries”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

We were walking to Plaza Mayor and saw this beautiful, old-fashioned bakery. I think we stood in front of the windows for 10 minutes trying to decide what to order! It's a wonderful place. Very crowded and busy at the counter, but the service is great. I got a meringue which beyond belief: huge, fluffy meringue but not at all cloying. Perfectly made. I highly recommend a stop. The most difficult part was choosing which of the dozens of choices to select!

“Yum!!!”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Amazing pastries. Their hours are short - posted from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM but they stay open later on some days. The chocolate neapolitans are especially good.

“Coffee counter”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

I love this place: you walk up to the counter, order your coffee, point to a pastry, eat it rather quickly, pay and leave. Its vibrant with atmosphere and the staff is suprisingly nice and sociable for such a fast paced environment. Greasy and sweet rich pastries. Eat them with cutlery: this is what the locals do.

“Delicious Pastries and breakfast goodies”
Reviewed 23 February 2012

We came here twice during our stay in Puerta del Sol. It is very crowded and full of locals buying goodies. It feels very mom/pop and there are simple glass cases filled with baked items. We got a croissant which was amazing, and asked what the most popular item was. The server indicated it was a chocolate rolled croissant which was seriously so decadent and delicious. When you bite into it, it just melts in your mouth. On one side of the bakery are to-go items, and on the other side is standing-at-the-counter-service for coffee and a pastry. Definitely a great place for a tasty pastry.
