Good pan in El Centro - Pasteleria Madrid

Can't Post | Private Reply
Stumbled across this place yesterday after we went to Ideal.

(And shhhhh we liked this one more!)


Pasteleria Madrid

The box says
2 addresses:

5 de Febrero y Uruguay #81
Mexico D.F. Centro

Tels. 55.21.33.78 y 55.18.29.52

We bought Pan de Muertos with crema inside. They also had Pan de Muertos with Nata inside. We also bought some sort of cream cheese crossaints which we so delicious and moist.

Rcommended if you are around and looking for some good bread! The location we went to on Uruguay is on the same street as Ideal.

Very nice customer service as well, didnt mind my gremlins running around in circles :)

I used to go to both the Pastelería Madrid AND the Ideal while staying in the Hotel Montecarlo, Uruguay # 69., starting back in '92. I always thought the Madrid a good solid bakery, but I preferred the Ideal. But one of the advantages was/is? that the Madrid served coffee and light food.

I don't know the status on their coffee and food nowadays, as we haven't stayed in the Hotel Montecarlo since 2004.

Another good bakery was/is El Molino, on 16 de septiembre, not far from the larger Ideal matriz. El Molino at some point underwent an ownership change, and the quality of both bread and coffee suffered greatly. I don't know if it has been restored.

Separately, and out of the Historic part of Centro, over in the barrio of San Juan and Buen Tono, west of Eje 3 San Juan de Letrán, is La Pilarica, on Calle López, just south of the corner of Calle Ayuntamiento. We have so far been there only twice, and barely sampled their breads and pastries, but they seem to be of a quality a considerable niche above what I remember of the Madrid and the Ideal.

(NOTE WELL: all these bakeries are worth visiting and trying their products. The good part is that you can walk some of the calories off going from one to another. I wouldn't pass final judgement on any until I have given all a fair trial with extensive sampling.

Anónimo, El Molino WAS a good bakery. Currently, nope. It was bought by Bimbo, which should tell you all you need to know.

Today a friend who is a professional baker and I are doing a Colonia La Condesa bakery crawl. We have eight to visit!

Thank you for the recommendation! We are willing to try out any place once (or twice). I agree, nothing lost in trying a new bakery especially when you have to walk to go to them and then have an excue to spend a day browsing downtown ;)

<---------- this girl right here, extremely jealous of your bakery crawl! Do post here or on your blog your favorites. Would love to do something like that, as soon as my gremlins (er, sweet angelitas) are old enough to be left alone with a sitter or family.

Have fun and enjoy yourself tonight!

Rayito, there is, ahhhhh, other excellent food in the same area as Panadería La Pilarica.

I could write blogs on those. Wait! I already have. (Under my other net name.)

Oooo thank you! I will read this and bookmark it for a (near) future trip to El Centro. We actually are going probably this coming week.
