THE place to go in Huehue for cakes, shakes and baked goods. Huehue does not have much to offer the European taste, especially if you want to stay clear of all the comedores. They have the usual Sarita ice cream chain store, but seating isn’t all that comfortable for a longer time, so when you want iced coffee, delicious smoothies and shakes and read your newspaper peacefully while looking at the parquet outside, come to Monte Alto. They have a huge selection of very delicious cakes ( I have yet to find one that good in Antigua…), offer lunch like pizza, a bit of pasta, paninis, sandwhiches; soups and also have a large selection of baked goods like muffins, their famous Elmo cupcakes ( delicious, cute and kids really love them !!) , croissants and vol au vents with ham and cheese, and things like that.

Many places said that it was a good bakery but is completely false when I arrived there there where no options to purchase as a whole cake or portions also the employees are lacking customer skills would not recommend it

I was wandering around Huehuetenango looking for good coffee, then stumbled upon this place. They had a proper espresso machine and made me exactly what I wanted. They also have a nice selection of cakes and smoothies.

I have only been to their location in Plaza Polanco in Quetzaltenango, and only to buy cakes for birthdays and other special occasions. The other bakeries we've tried offer cakes that are damp instead of moist and so sweet they nearly curl your hair. It might seem odd that their headquarters are in Huehuetenango, but their baking skills rival anything you might encounter in Vienna. The staff has always been friendly and accommodating, though I've always given them at least a day's notice for a whole cake. Our favorite is the almond torte. A whole cake that serves 16 costs Q150+/-
