We found "gallo guero" because we were looking for the bakery in this review. We found out the old owner closed up shop about 6 months ago (we visited on January 24th, 2018). This family has bought the bakery and is making the BEST CINNAMON ROLLS in town! Be sure to wait for them to come fresh and hot from the oven! They also serve BLTs, pork sandwiches, and other amazing lunch options. So, this is definitely a must visit! If you do not want to sit inside and eat, there is a bench right outside the door where you can enjoy the street action and stunning architecture surrounding you. Keep this location on your list of things to do in Mexico City!! And, everything is made fresh and by hand and you will not get sick! Oh, if you are missing bacon, they cure their own bacon so it is tastes perfect with every bite of your BLT!
Again, I just cannot say enough kind things about how perfect every bite of their food is!
Most Sincerely!

Small little bakery in Norte Roma. Coffee was okay and I had a chocolate croissant which was also ok. Not sure I would come back, I passed by another nearby bakery that had a lot more stuff and was totally jammed packed- I'm guessing that one is good. But now I can't remember where I saw it... :(

I frequent this place a couple times per week for their fresh bread, almond chocolate croissants & pizza bread. All the baked goods are exceptional & the staff is friendly and helpful.

On a Friday morning, I decide to forget about all pending emails to write and work to do and treat myself to a cooking class at La Puerta Abierta, a wonderful little bakery in the middle of Colonia Roma which has a fantastic and very photogenic cooking kitchen on the 2nd floor. The class is to be dedicated to dried chiles and given by the very knowledgable and entertaining Jane Mason.

Jane receives us with 10 bowls filled with different kinds of chiles soaking in water. After unsuccessfully trying to identify each one, we taste the water from every bowl to be able to truly appreciate the different flavours (yes, a bit spicy but not too much!). We then proceed to learn how to use the chiles in a tortilla soup, baked eggs in morita sauce and chile ancho stuffed with hoja santa and manchego cheese (which we then devoured, yummmm!!!)

For anyone who wants to learn one of the basics of Mexican cooking or if you’re just looking to have a delightful cooking experience in a relaxed atmosphere which culminates in an incredibly delicious meal, this class is a must!

Next on my list… learning how to make ciabatta!

Amazing experience, went solo for basic bread (still can't see what was so basic, it was amazing on all accounts, plus the pizza we made and then...devoured. Sorry! I'm afraid there are no pics, the bread was too good to last, even for a brief pose.) I sent me teen-aged son to another class, German bread, kneading and sifting, we managed to steal the pretzels at home, the rye is long gone, and his grandma didn't get to see any of our works of art. I guess she will just have to go for a class on her own! I'm uploading photos from their Facebook page....seeing as all was eaten too fast!
Did I mention they have kids classes? I only saw the aftermath, but the cupcake session looked awesome!

This tiny bakery has fantastic french and italian bread. Croissants, Pans au chocolat, almond croissants, baguettes, ciabatta - the lot are absolutely excellent. There is also a good selection of tarts and cakes. Upstairs there is a gorgeous kitchen where they teach classes in baking and cooking (a great thing to do when you are in the city) in both English and Spanish, and there is an amazing plant and flower store too! English and Spanish spoken in this great place!
