América Bakery – Pastry & sweets

Forget the muffins or those industrial pastries. Come here and start enjoying the real Spanish homemade cakes and “bizcochos”. They also sell freshly baked bread to complete your lunch. You know you need to dip into that tomato sauce.

Remember when you visit your grandmother and she has been preparing that bizcocho (sponge cake) carefully throughout the morning? That is América Bakery (Horno de Pastelería América in Spanish). Have a birthday to celebrate? Try the excellent pie. They have different recipes: apple, cheesecake, chocolate…

When I’m passing by I always have to eat the pastry covered with sugared egg yolks (€ 1.75). Yes, maybe you will forget to eat dinner after this. América Bakery is placed in the Antón Martín neighbourhood. Located between “Las Letras” and Lavapiés. That big brown sculpture you see in the middle of the plaza is an homage to the 5 labor lawyers assassinated by the extreme-right-command in 1977. In the other direction, to the South, you will reach Atocha train station and Retiro park.
