Bread by the beach
Shopfront, La Baguette
La Baguette is situated on the Rincon Sito road leading to the beach and sits next to El Tiburon Juice Bar.
This little stretch has some nice little restaurants and shops selling trinkets and locally made health food, organic soap and the like or on the other end of the spectrum mescal, tequila and smoking paraphernalia.
La Baguette, though, offers perhaps the most tempting wares around here. As the name suggests, it is a bakery and its delicious wares are on offer until late for those who need something after their dinner, like the "chocalatine" pastries, kind of like a croissant stuffed with chocolate, and I mean stuffed. On a good day it's around a 75-25 split in favour of the chocolate!
They have savoury bread as well which comes topped with tomato or herbs sometimes. It's all made out the back and comes out fresh and delicious.
You can buy honey, tahini, chocolate and various other goodies, including whole-wheat flour so you can make your own bread!
They do tasty coffee as well and you will often find a gang of hippies hanging around on the doorstep of a morning with a bread in one hand and coffee in the other, shooting the breeze and contemplating what next at a lazy day on the beach.
