Description: Cachitos is a small bakery in the heart of downtown montreal that brings you a taste of Venezuela and its incomparable Cachitos!DescriptionFrequently Asked Cachitos Questions : - Where does it come from?Cachitos are a traditional Venezuelan pastry, usually considered to be a breakfast food although many enjoy them throughout the day.-What are the traditional fillings?The traditional filling for the Cachito is ham, but in modern Venezuela it is common to find cheese Cachitos as well. We at Cachito Bakery, created a much wider assortment of flavours, so everyone is sure to find a personal favourite. -What does Cachitos mean?Cachitos comes from the Spanish word “Cacho” meaning “Horn”. The “-ito” at the ends marks it as a diminutive form, a form usually used for small things or as a term of endearment.-How are they made?The Cachito dough used in Cachitos Bakery is the result of extensive tests and trials, refined to a perfectly calibrated recipe meant to go well with our large variety of fillings. The rolling process has also been streamlined to be able to quickly produce as many Cachitos as anyone could want. -What are Golfeados?Golfeados are a traditional Venezuelan dessert, similar in looks to the Cinnamon roll but spiced with Aniseed, Cheese and Cane Sugar. -What does Golfeado mean?Golfeado is nothing more the name of the pastry, although the word Golfeado calls to mind the puffy quality of the pastry.

we decided to do lunch there before the 90th annual St Paddy Parade in 2013. What a delightful experience. Carmen, the enthusiastic owner of Cachitos, charmed "Black Irish Rick" that day with her Irish costume, Spanish lilt and delicious food! The special coffee is a dessert in itself.
Clean & bright & very pleasant.
It has a great scenic view of the Latin Quarter from the counter in the front window... an area that is in transition from "sad" to "artistic"... on the street you will see lots of colorful characters and fabulous wall murals. Metropolis ( which features interesting live music from the well known Great Big Sea to the up & coming like Jill Barber) is just a few doors away and Place Des Arts is an easy stroll.
Highly recommend it.

If you are not Venezuelan and want to try something delicious, you have to go Cachitos. You'll get a great variety of hand roll breads that make Cachitos the best place to go for breakfast, have a light lunch or just a snack in the afternoon, accompanied by an excellent coffee. To this we must add the friendly atmosphere created by their owners do makes Cachitos a constant meeting place.

A cachito is perfect for a snack or a light meal: soft and full of flavor. A piece of Venezuela's warmness in Canada.

The cofees are great. Many original combinations and the traditiinals too.

You always leave with a smile in your face. Liliana, Carmen, Leandro and Rubén will make sure of that

I walked in for coffee one day last fall between classes (near UQAM). I had no idea what cachitos were, but the owners (unbelievably warm and nice) explained everything to me. When I took that first bite of the ham and cheese cachito...OMG i was sold. Needless to say, I`ve been going once a week since last fall. I`ve tried all their different flavours of cachitos, and I usually spend several hours there, eating, drinking their *excellent* coffee and studying. When I come in now, I am greeted like family, and I can`t htink of a better place to be for a break.
I highly recommend the chicken/ricotta cachito and the chorizo one as well. Bring a friend! :)

Happened by this place while exploring rue de St. Laurent. Not only were the cachitos to die for, but the proprietors were so kind and friendly--esp to my kid. I loved the sample they shared, the coffee and the artwork downstairs. Where can I find (or make) a cachito in DC?
