This shop is fantastic, they were extremely nice and their recommendations were delicious. We tried several items. My favorite was the lime stuffed with coconut. I asked for them to refer us to a place for lunch and they sent us to Cafe de Tacuba which was some of the best Mexican food I have ever tasted. Thank you!!!

Take a number when you enter this small sweet shop. Celaya produces beautifully made Mexican biscuits and sweets. I also noticed jars of artiginal Dulce de Leche stacked on the shelves.
These would be great gifts to take home. Yum!

This is a “must see” and taste if you are in the Historic Center in CDMX. The sweet little shop has been at this location since the 1920s. My favorite was a little bite of chocolate with tequila...Muy rico!

This candy store has been here for more than 100 years. Even if you do not have a sweet tooth, stop by and peek in just to see the interior of this amazing candy store. My favorites are the coconut stuffed limes (limones cocadas), the pig shaped cookies, the tortitas de Puebla (pie crust type exterior with caramel filling) and the colorful lagrimas (flavored liquid filled candies). Candy is sold by weight. Point to what you want and tell the sales lady 100 gramos, for example. Too bad they don't speak English, or maybe another customer can help translate for you. Definitely worth a visit for a sweet treat and some pictures.

100 year old candy stores aren't plentiful. This one is great with old world decor that would fit in any cosmopolitan city in Europe. Make sure to visit this location while in the historic district for that experience. The sweets are as beautiful and rustic as they are tasty, and with a large selection.

Love tripping myself up as i braked to inspect the curiously interesting window display. Its a family buzz specialising in sweets. Its a lolly shop that entices the prospective customer with an alluringly colourful offerings. I liked the meringue suspiros or ‘wishes’ and the wee pig-shaped molasses cookies. Loved the interior, hall marked with antique fixtures and wonderful, elaborate mosaic tile floors

We were directed to get Frida Kahlo ‘s favorite sweet, lime stuffed with coconut at this shop. Very small shop and attendants (all 5) where not very helpful And looked bored. Shop is old and decor interesting. I am not sure about gifts. Our lime and meringue was packaged in a white bag. Items were tasty.

A previous review was right--this is a small store that is not really a tourist spot as much as a regular (but terrific) sweets store. It's worth a look if you want to try candies that are all made the way they were made in 1874, when the store first opened--no processed sugar, flour or preservatives. Instead, they are made with fruits, nuts, honey, etc. This is a great place to get some gifts to take home with you (and to treat yourself). The store itself is small, but it's beautiful inside and has the original sign on the outside from 1874!

With the name dulceria, and with a lot of history, I expected Dulceria de Celaya to be more than mazapanes and frutas cristalizadas. As I got in, I got out. Not really a touristic place, mainly in a city with so many old stores as the Dulceria de Celaya.

What an amazing shop full of sweet delights! From Glaceed fruits, tempting and delicious chocolates to fudgelike milk based sweets full of nuts and selected spices!. My daughter and I left with small bags filled with a few choice treasures.
The window display of glistening bon bons and brightly colored paper flowers alone are worth a visit! Highly recommend!
