Suggestions for a bakery (for breads)?

Last year while in PDC we "discovered" the home baked breads at the supermarket - they were so good we actually took a taxi back to the grocery just to get more fresh bread!

We had looked up and down 5th but did not notice any bakeries where we could get fresh breads and rolls. Do any exist nearby? (We will be staying at Xamen-Ha)

Thx
Joellen

There is an excellent place on Juarez between 5th and Ave 10 that sells delicious bread, rolls, and sweet bread very similar to that found at the supermarkets. The name escapes me but you will see the buns in the window!

Bakery

Great bakery on the north end of 5th at 22nd. When we stayed at Hotel Paradise we ate breakfast there most mornings, great pastries at 5 pesos each. Also ate dessert there in the evening once. They even have a cappacino vending machine that actually is very good!

Chedraui's grocery store has a great bakery-we usually hit it a couple of times during our visits.

There's Super Panaderia on 5th, between 4th and 2nd. They have a nice selection of sweet breads, and it wasn't just tourists in there buying. Someone said they have good coffee, but I never tried, as they opened too late in the morning for my caffeine-starved self.

El Molino

There's also El Molino, on the corner of av 30 and calle 12, not far from Panaderia. It's set back from the street; look for a sign with a blue windmill. They make a great pastel tres leches, and sometimes have flan or cake slices to go in plastic clamshells.
