So sad to see this business close. It leaves Ixtapa without a real bakery (unless there's someplace I'm missing). You can get a little croissant or something at Nueva Zelandia, but it's not the same when you can't get cakes and things to go. I have been in Ixtapa over my March birthday many times and will miss the beautiful... More

Sadly, a neighboring shop owner said Helmut usually comes back in November and reopens for the season. This year (2013-14), he has not returned. He is surely elderly - has been running Golden Cookie for at least 20 years. A heartfelt salute to a fine restauranteur and his unique contribution to the lovely community of Ixtapa.

My grandma used to make me and my sisters chocolate chip pancakes in the shape of animals. We always chose giraffes and tigers and zebras so we'd get more chips! No need to worry about that here at the German Bakery and Golden Cookie Shop! I had pancakes exploding with chocolate chips! You'll get a great selection of breakfast choices... More

We eat here at least five mornings during our two week stay. The juices are incredible, fresh,and the eggs are the freshest you can get. Have a pancake here and you will always get the best.

The food was really very good, but a 45 minute wait for breakfast made it not pleasant! Even on vacation when one is relaxed and taking it all in, that long a wait ruined our experience. We also thought it was over priced and not really worth the difference.

We loved our breakfasts at this wonderful little bakery. The fruit plates were amazing, and every entree (omlette, pancakes, heuvos ranchero etc) were always so fresh and tasty! We just happened upon this little place, and we're so glad we did! On our last day there, the owner caught wind we were leaving town and chased us down to give... More

Such a fabulous find. We enjoyed the fantastic omelets fully loaded with a great cup of coffee served in a large mug.( no refills needed). They are open for breakfast and lunch. They also sell baked bread and cinnamon buns, croissants out of their bakery. Been in business by a German couple since 1989. Worthwhile to find this place...it is... More

The French Toast is to die for. This is an organic bakery with lots of choices. Fresh squeezed orange juice was delicious. We also liked the omelets.

Lets first start with the pastries. we tried one of each, the coconut bread- which was very good. the cinammon roll- it was ok. but cinnabon (at local u.s. malls) is still the best. it just needs more frosting. the blueberry muffin- it is a big muffin, but disappointed. it reminded me of a twinkie. it's a big muffin and...

We only take out pastry. It is great. There isn't much good bakery in Ix but the Golden Cookie is the exception and exceptional. Most bakery in Mx looks good but doesn't have the taste we Americans expect. The Golden Cookie has the taste we are looking for. It is not in a place where you will "happen on to... More
