Bakery in Lima

One of the neighborhood favorites, this bakery serves up a wide variety of breads, from traditional baguettes and French rolls, to playful experiments like pesto or aji (Peru’s slightly spicy pepper) loaves and gorgeous pastries. It's busy on weekends with the brunch crowd (eggs aren't on the menu but available).

Thanks to its wild popularity, it has opened an extension across the street with two stories of seating.
