This is a wonderful candy store that is located in the Historic Center. The building is beautiful and there is a very wide assortment of Mexican candies. I highly recommend visiting this shop and trying at least one candy that looks interesting to you.

It gets your attention ever since you look at the façade. It really keeps the XIX century look! On the inside is an assortment of sweets from different parts of Mexico. Delicious! Service was ok. Original one is downtown on 5 de mayo.

What a wonderful place !!! It's so nice to enter that kind of place where time seems to be stopped. So good to see that kind of places still exist in this world where progress and modernity take over all mythical places.

A cute little sweet shop with local specialties! One of them (a local specialty, I can't remember the name) was wonderful. They are stacked up sort of crispy crepes with honey & spices. They were very friendly & helpful!

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro

City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
