Nosh: La Postreria

This past December, while I was visiting my family in Guadalajara, Mexico I had the pleasure to visit the super cute and delicious dessert shop, La Postreria.   I first discovered them on Instagram while planning my trip to Guadalajara and I immediately fell in love with their gorgeous pastries. I then talked about it with my cousin that lives there, and he reassured that this place was AMAZING!

This charming dessert shop is located in the lovely Providencia neighborhood in Guadalajara. It has a very homey feel and is very spacious. On the first floor, there is a siting area where you can see the chefs working on the wonderful and creative creations in the back and upstairs you can find a quaint and luminous area where you can enjoy your favorite treats.

Our experience was fantastic! The second my aunt and I walked into the shop, we were welcomed by their friendly staff and had the pleasure to meet one of the founders and pastry chefs, Fernanda. She shared with us the fun story of how her and her Spanish partners started this unique dessert shop in Guadalajara 4 years ago, and now it has turned into a very popular spot in town!

Now to the fun part…. The tastings!

We stated off with some yummy, savory breakfast items:

Cream cheese, arugula and salmon bagel freshly made in house and English muffin with egg and bacon.
