It is my understanding that this local establishment has been producing sweets for a very long time and that the recipes have stayed the same throughout the years. The interior is charming with wood and glass cabinets filled with delectable goodies and walls lined with ceramic colorful owls. I had a Canillita de Leche which is like a dissolve in your mouth, sweet white fudge and a Higo (candied fig) which was amazing! Difficult to explain the texture of a candied fig but don’t worry about it; just go there and get one, or two, or three of everything!

You have to go to this place and try their sweets. It is a family business that has been operating since the 1800. They have different kinds of sweets and they can pack them nicely for your trip. The sweets last about 4-5 days without refrigeration after that they are still good but a bit hard. They make sweets of figs, guava, milk, coconut, tamarind ; mostly made with white sugar. We brought some for my sister and I have to confess that we did not give them to her and ate them all ... they are really good !

I simply could not walk past this shop! I glanced in and just had to see what it was all about. When I discovered it was traditional sweet treats, oh my! How wonderful! I bought a candied fig with coconut for Q8 and a marzipan and cinnamon flower for Q7. So delicious! I could have spent a lot of money in this store just trying all the interesting and unique treats. There are also a hundred pottery owls on the shelves. They are owl banks! (Like piggybanks back home.) They also sold other pottery items. My friend bought peacock napkin rings. Definitely stop into this store and buy a treat. You don't regret it!

We were taking a walking tour of old Antiqua and the guide took us into this shop. It was amazing with all the little treats and dulces that were there for us to choose from. We had 4 treats and it cost a little over 3 dollars US.

This shop is simply fantastic! They sell traditional Guatemalan sweets and treats. The customer waits behind the counter as in old times and is served by the staff in white aprons and headpieces. The very helpful ladies behind the counters are willing to explain all the different kinds they have, so just ask if you are curious and try a couple of different ones for an authentic experience. The whole atmosphere in the shop has to be experienced, so take it all in and treat yourself!
