Incredible variety of pan dulce. My favorite was the largest ding dong knock-off I have ever seen. It was delicious, as was everything else I tried. Nice touch is their complimentary coffee and cafeteria style order. You can stroll the aisle with your tray and pinsas to pick your favorites. Reasonable prices and amazing selection of fresh pastries. Got try... More

This is one of the places that is a must pit stop. You can find all kind of pastries, cakes and wholegrain breads. And if you're in a hurry, you can also find local products on sale here. The staff was very nice and helpful. If you have a sweet tooth, you definitely should stop here.

This is the best place to get pastry in Tecate. This place it's been around for decades. It has become an iconic landmark in this town. Swing by and you'll be surprised on the different kinds of pastry they carry - all of them tasting wonderful. Enjoy!

You won't experience a better Mexican bakery along the Mexico/California border area!!! While waiting to check out, we stood next to a guy and his wife from Tijuana that routinely drive out to the mountains to Tecate to come to this bakery (about 35 miles)!

This establishment is a "must" when visiting the Town of Tecate up in the Baja Mountains. From bread rolls to cakes to pastries to pizzas and even wine, this bakery is the perfect excuse to get out of your city and explore this charming "pueblo."

The selection is huge. Just about all the pan dulce imaginable.My gripe is I seldom find same-day fresh pastries. When I buy a rosca de Reyes or pan de Muertos my Tecate friends take me to another panaderia.

The bakery made a special accommodation for our large group of about 60 persons (mainly pre-teen kids) walk through, pick one dessert, and tally up at the end for the Principal to... More
