The first report on this board was about the amazing cinammon buns. So I went. And I agree with Ferret. I can't imagine what those people are comparing them to. They are better at El Torito for 15p. (Not that those are great.)

I bought two of their cinnamon buns to go. Driest most tasteless pastries ever. YMMV.

Totally agree and the cardamon muffins are just as bad or worse....ugh!!!  Bagels are great if you have a hacksaw at home to cut them with.

Their bagels when they first opened were excellent.  Now they fall flat, literally.  No rise to them at all.

The cardamom rolls are good when eaten with a large cup of coffee.  Croissants filled/topped with fruit are usually quite good.  

Best cinnamon rolls are those from the small Seis Esquinas bakery across from the Guadalupe church.  12 pesos and they are quite large.  Fresh usually after 12:30.  And no raisins, a plus for me.

I like the cinnamon rolls--they're made with croissant dough--but they're different from what most of us have learned to expect. For something more in line with expectations try the croissants, especially the almond ones. We think they are fantastic! Savta has an astoundingly wide selection of pastries to go with their espresso, often including something I'd never expect--or want--matcha croissants, topped with pine nuts. The sourdough bagels taste great, although, as others have commented, the last time we got some they were flat. Plus they have a good selection of craft beers, although not as good as The Spot bar on the Ajijic plaza. They also have some tasty and unusual sandwiches and I hear they now have a Sunday brunch. Closed Tuesdays, and the owner, Naz, keeps to their 8-6 open hours.

I found these the best I've had...and she delivers too!

 

Thanks Alpha1 but cinnamon buns are a spur of the moment craving for me and not conducive to advance ordering. :) Imho, cinnamon buns should be sticky and gooey inside and out. But then I've had the best at the bottom of Blue Mountain from a woman who used to cook and sell them out of her own kitchen. Used to be located where Skiis Please is now. I sure wouldn't want to be washing her pans. ;)

Interesting that their page says they are closed every day except Monday.

Ha-ha--open every day except Tuesday.  I love this place, Naz's work ethic, his insistence on using pricier quality ingredients, the variety of goods not available anywhere else and the ambiance.  He's added outdoor umbrella tables and inside or outside you can have  a private conversation without interruptions  unlike the more public plaza spots.

Well, I don't go there anymore, so perhaps someone who does could suggest they need to update their info.
