All reviews cakes pastry bread donuts empanadas amazing pastries baked goodness fellow patrons incredible place second floor sweet tooth zocalo area your plate historic district cashier bakery pastelaria
Tons of pastel of all sorts, in self serve, with a lot of people and as much butter and sugar for all you can take. Very well organised (you drop your plate, get a ticket, pay at the counter and get back your order wrapped...up).
A must try !More
I feel like this is the heart and soul of Mexico. A true wonderland of amazing and unique pastries, as well as basically a living museum for fantastically ornate cakes that are taller than yourself.
Don't be intimidated by the crowds (assuming your visit is...post-Covid), just dive in and grab a tray. Checking out is part of the adventure too. You have to get a number and discern which line you're actually in, but just take cues from your fellow patrons. And don't be afraid to ask any of the helpful folk around you.
Most importantly, be sure to appreciate the warp-speed custom package wrapping that everyone gets.
Lastly, be sure to not skip the upstairs section, even if you don't plan to personally purchase a 6-tier Minions-themed cake for yourself.More
One of the biggest bakeries I've ever seen - with ground floor full of delicious breads, cakes, pastries, jellies, muffins and cream cakes. There is a showroom on the first floor with cakes weighting up to 100kg which are apparently real. I've tasted some pastries...and rolls and they were delicious! It's tricky to learn how to order and pay so follow someone (you have to pick your pastries, carry them to e packed and receive the ticket, go to another place to pay and then come back to the same person who've packed your stuff).More
OMG!!! An experience NOT to be missed. This bakery is amazing, spent 1 hour just walking around selecting baked goods to take back with us. Not sure if their cake exhibit is still open on the top floor but worth asking. The wedding cakes are...pieces of art. We bought about 7 different types of baked goods, all wrapped for freshness. We have since sent three other people to this spot all of whom rave! Some of our goodies were not eaten until 4 days later all staying fesh in our mini frig in the hotel. One of the highlights of our visitMore
This bakery near the zocalo area is always bustling with locals whenever I passed by and I couldn’t help but get some pastries before I flew home. Got a chocolate muffin and half a kilo of cookies assortment. You can pick and choose the flavours...you like but we got them to pack a mixture for us. The cookies were soft and delicious even after a twenty hour flight home!!!More
This bakery is located in downtown and it’s a tradition to go there if you are looking for sweet bread, pastries and cakes. There’s a wide variety of products, always freshly made. The people who work there are nice and helpful!
I love this bread store. It is huge and offers many different breads, cookies, pastries, and jello. I had some empanadas and were amazing! The bread is super cheap for the quality.
It is worthwhile going and tasting some pastries!

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... More
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!
