A cute little sweet shop with local specialties! One of them (a local specialty, I can't remember the name) was wonderful. They are stacked up sort of crispy crepes with honey & spices. They were very friendly & helpful!

When friends go go to Mexico City, this is my "you gotta go here" recommendation! It's like stepping through a time portal at this wonderful candy shop!

With its beautifully painted windows and mountains of pastries and sweets displayed behind them, this is one of the most beautiful shops in Mexico City. The sweets are all hand made and of the local variety. A great stop os any tour of Centro Storico.

This place is mentioned in all major guidebooks, and as a lover of dulces/sweets, I had to visit, expecting I'd drop some serious cash here on myself or on gifts for others. Storefront is indeed cute, and since my visit was near Dia de los Muertos, they had some lovely and festive candy ofrendas. Kind of disappointed at the selection... More

Loved this place! Very close to the Zócalo. They have a wide variety of sweets. The building they are in is old and full of Mexican character, and the employees try to be very helpful even if you don't know Spanish. I loved the Obleas and other delicious things there. I highly recommend you visit!

I had the priveledge of getting a behind the scenes tour of the handmade artesanal production facility for my blog. Everything is made from fresh ingredients and Celaya simply has the most varied selection of decadent OLD SCHOOL Mexican Sweets in the DF. Absolute must stop if you are in the Centro Histórico particularly if you have a sweet tooth.

This artisanal candy store has been there for 114 years. Starting with the storefront showcasing all the homemade candies (don't expect brightly colored wrapped chocolates here) and ending with a small, but very quaint interior (the ceiling and the side painted panels are incredible) - the entire experience is worth the visit if you are in the Zócalo area.

This shop has been here since the 1800s. We happened on it by chance and it was a lovely experience. There was also an organ grinder playing outside and that also added to the atmosphere. We bought an assortment of traditional Mexican candies. They were all delicious. If you are in the Zocalo area make sure you stop by this... More

I came here to buy some presents for friends back in the US. The service was very friendly, and the store manager helped me select the most traditional Mexican candy to bring back. What I've tasted so far has been delicious. It's more pricey than going to the supermarket, but it's also a unique experience.

Staying in Centro Historico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
