Fodor's Expert Review Hojaldres Alonso
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Part of a local deli chain, this shop near the cathedral is a great place to browse shelves of local goodies (candied nuts, preserves), all produced in nearby Astorga. Then head to the café in the back—the focus here is on the baked goods, particularly the hojaldres (puff pastries) and torrijas. The café is a favorite among locals who come for their early evening merienda, Spain's answer to afternoon tea (usually 6–8). You can also order online.
