This is pastry heaven! I have never seen so many amazing pastries in my life. Empandas, cookies, donuts, conchas, rolls...grab a tray and go crazy! Bring your tray over to a "packer" who gives you a slip to take to the cashier, then trade in...More
You know its quality by the proud gait of patrons exiting carrying the trademark signature pastry boxes. The aromas are engaging, making the choosing very difficult. The pastries are a work of art in themselves. My box contained a sample of conchas, besos, cuernitos and...More
Just got back from a trip to Pasteleria Ideal with my teenagers. They both reveled (with me) in the sheer quantity and beauty of all the baked treats. We picked out 6 or 7 (huge) pieces of bakery.
A good thing for non-Spanish speakers to...More
Probably no bakery like this in the rest of the world. HUGE HUGE selection of cakes and pastries and VERY LOW prices. But you need to know how it works. There are three processes: 1, For pastries, pick up a tray and tongs. Help yourself....More
I stayed just a couple of blocks away in March 2019, visited Pasteleria Ideal on several occasions. The pastries and breads that are out on display are very very good but the pastries in the separate case near the front entrance are truly exceptional. We...More
Just happened upon this amazing bakery walking around the historic area of the city. It is massive and yet you can barely move in here. There are people carrying trays stacked with cakes, pastries and cookies . The cakes are amazing creations but its the...More
If you can/like to eat baked goods, you must visit Pasteleria Ideal. The place is magical and the pastries are huge, delicious and cheap. Payment is not as difficult as other reviews have noted--you just have to take your tray of pastries to a counter...More
Bakeries are my favorite places to visit when traveling. It tells me a lot about the culture and food of an area. Pasteleria Ideal is the most amazing bakery I have ever been in. Two floors of deliciousness! They cake selections and demos are unbelievable...More
Tons of variety. Loved everything we purchased. Cakes displayed were stunning. However we didn’t purchase one, just looked. Buying is confusing. Make your choice and you get an invoice. Pay using the invoice then go pick up your goods that are now packaged up.
The cakes and tarts in this delightful bakery look too good to believe. If you want a smaller portion, they have that too. In addition, the empanada we purchased yesterday had delicious filling and the most delicate, flaky crust you could imagine. Great prices.
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.

I don't know how many square feet but it's very large and two stories. Also there may be two locations -- Google maps shows a different location based on whether you search "ideal bakery" or "pasteleria ideal." We went to the location on Calle 16 de septiembre, which is what comes up on google maps when you search "pasteleria ideal." They both seem to be in centro historico. I don't know anything about the Calle Uruguay location but it sounds similarly amazing!
