Reviewed April 22, 2014

Best home made tamales anywhere! YES..at a bakery! Pork all the time, or order specialty tamales. Love their spicy chicken tamales! BIG and lots of meat on all tamales!

“Best bakery bar none in TEXAS”
Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely fabulous! Tamales and most anything you can think of place is family own clean and right of the main drag of Galveston. Coffee, soda, and other drink to quench your thirst. Give them a try open late!

“A Pastry Landmark!”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

This is the finest bakery I have ever seen. Just a fact. They make the BEST pastries, cakes and famous kolaches! Lots of tasty goodies for a fraction of what others charge. Very helpful owners who serve you personally. Small parking lot next to the bakery sometimes makes it hard to get to, but worth it! You will definitely not be disappointed.

“The Best Bakery in all of Galveston”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

If you like baked goods, this is the place for you. It's located on Broadway down near the causeway. There is a little parking lot just to the side.
When you walk through the front door you know you've arrived just by the wonderful smells that come your way. There are two humongous displays right there in front of you, full of all kinds of things...most that I could not recognize.
And that brings me to the nice lady who is there to help you. That poor lady had to explain almost everything in the case to me once and sometimes twice before I made my selections.
There is a wide variety of baked goods in there, such as, apple or pineapple turnovers, cinnamon pastries in a variety of forms, jelly rolls, gingerbread pigs, yes pigs(I don't know why) and much, much more.
For less than $20 I fed a family of 5 a great breakfast. You can't beat it.
