“As of March 2014, Golden Cookie is indeed closed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

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 birthday cakes from this place.

“Golden Cookie might be gone?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

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.

“Chocolate Chip pancakes and other great breakfast choices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

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 here and can't go wrong with anything. We had ham, eggs, bacon,and pancakes, all good, and even got an apple fritter for the next morning's early bike ride! Yum!

“Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

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.

“Honestly disappointed - service was very poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

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.
