Awesome bread, buns, cakes, sweet snacks & savoury eats...

A must visit. This bakery is in the heart of Panjim, just off 18th June Road.

Very fresh items, fly off the shelf as they come out from the oven.

Old fashioned & tasty!!!!

We have been getting their biscuits, cakes, snacks for well over two decades now, never been disappointed with taste or complained of food poisoning. Their "bhakkam peda" is what I would recommend for all to eat, tastes best when freshly prepared and ready to eat.

I don't know if they have any other bakeries in Panjim but this one.
From what I hear it's been part of the city's legacy since as long as back in 1930. Has a lovely ambiance with kind and helpful stuff who are whipping up orders left and right.
Onion biscuits are something offbeat in the menu that I haven't seen anywhere else, home or abroad.
