Reviews for El Rosal Bakery

Came here to try the pan dulce - what a selection! Will definitely be back to try a filled sweet bread and a tamale. The sweet bread I tried was so satisfying and fluffy, just the right amount of sweetness. Note they have a $10 credit card limit and the sweet bread I got was only $1.

I am usually not a big fan of Mexican bread and pastries but this spot is pretty good. The best part was the Tamales, they were not kidding when they said they had the best in the area. This is also a grocery store so they have a lot of other goodies too. They are quite popular based on the line so be ready for that.

Even though I'm just an annual vacation visitor to Santa Cruz, a stop here for the tasty tamales is always on the itinerary. Moist, savory, decent size and luxurious mouth feel. At $3 each it's a culinary bargain. Also I buy a small variety of pastries. I know my Mexican sweets (I lived in Mexico City for a year and California for most f my life). These here pastries are way above average in looks and flavor. The small market is sparkling clean. There are just a few short aisles...read full review
