Trendy little bakery. Delicious brownies! Other items looked nice too. Another outlet on Zurriola worth a try where you can sit in and have coffee.

1st: I got my order after 30 min. They forgot to give me a kind of ringer. This can happen ... 2nd: 20 tables, 18 free ... I wanted to order a coffee. Not possible, all the tables are reserved for lunch. :D

There is only one real bread bakery in San Sebastian. And not because they say so stopping you in your daily walk from-to with the temptingly and inviting-to-enter sign “real bread”, and not even because it’s called after the best bread shape ever invented, then...More

Awesome simple bread. We got takeaway coffee and bread and sat across the road on the beach. Perfect way to start the day.
