We stopped in to try the specialty, which was good but very rich. They look small but could be split by two people. Staff wasn't the friendliest we encountered in Spain...but they weren't rude or anything.

I just had a coffee break here and enjoyed trying the ponche. Service was just ok and the small cake was €3. Similar treats are less expensive away from Plaza Mayor but it is a nice bakery.

We took a coffee break here and tried the Segovian specialty, ponche, quite nice. We also had some thin cookie with slivered almonds in it, also good. They also had many other beautiful desserts there that looked quite tempting!

Located on Plaza Mayor, it is hard to miss this local bakery. They have a very small cafe in the back and make a good cup of coffee to accompany whatever you choose from the front. I like their "cheesecake" with forest fruit jam on the top but the eclairs are good too. Service is spotty.

HEAVENS! This dessert is something you need to try when you go to Segovia! It is delicious!!!! I believe that trying this dessert is as equally important as trying the cochinillo at Jose Maria!

We stopped here for a quick lunch (ham & cheese croissant) and to try the 'ponche segoviano'. Both were delicious. Don't share the croissant (you won't want to, it's sooo good), however, the ponche segoviano is really rich and heavy, so you can easily split a little one between two people. The ladies in the shop/cafeteria were also very nice.... More

Pasteleria Limon y Menta is a great little cafe just off the Plaza Mayor in Segovia. We visited twice on the same day. We stopped for coffee before visiting the Cathedral, and we like it so much that we returned for lunch/brunch afterwards. It is a little tight on the inside and on the rainy day we stopped in there... More

We read about Limón y Menta in a guidebook and it was the perfect spot to recharge with a quick cup of coffee while in Segovia. While all of the items in the display case are tempting, you have to try it famous "ponche segoviano" marzipan cake. It's very rich, so 2 people can definitely share it!
