Neighborhood: Col. Montecristo
Address: Av. 5, No 100 Local 2 Col Montecristo
How to Get There from the Centro: Go north on Prolongacion Paseo de Montejo, past the Burger King Circle. Turn right on Calle 9 (before Gran Plaza… there’s a 7-11 on the near right corner), which turns into Villas Hacienda. Continue past three glorietas. Past Boxito on your right and look for the OXXO on your left. At this third glorieta (Av. 5) make a 3/4 turn around the glorieta and proceed straight on Av. 5. You will need to make a U-turn to get to parking lot in front of Pistache or park adjacent to the school and walk across the street.
Pistache is in a small mall.

Notes: The pasteleria offers a large selection of french pastries, chocolate and almond croissants & various french breads that are all baked daily by French pastry Chef Patrice. In addition, Pistache carries a variety of imported European cheeses. There are a few tables in front of the bakery where coffee and pastries can be enjoyed, but this is mostly a walk-in kind of place.

    Pistache is opening a place in centro- on Calle 41, end of March. Between calle 60 and 58, next to Bodega 41. Nice garden seating in the back.

    Just wondering what kinds of cheese are available? I'm a big fan of really spicy goat cheese, hopefully it's not all brie.

    Looking forward to checking it out.

    John, I am glad that you've found it! I suppose I should have used the word "pastry" when I sent in the information vs bakery. The imported cheese was mentioned for sure. Yummy. From my experience, occasionally bread will be made and sold. A wonderful brioche was available this past week for the holidays. And, such wonderful surprises keep me going back each week. Another correction, is that the wine was offered during a wine and cheese tasting~ so not daily. In January there will be opportunities to sign up for pastry making classes-so be sure to go and inquire about those.

    It's a patisserie, not a boulangerie, which is why its emphasis is on pastries and not breads. In France, the two are never baked or sold together.

    In fact it is a cheese and pastry shop. Not a bakery. They have desserts and pastries but they do not sell bread according to the owner. He has a couple of loaves of bread there that he uses when he gives samples of cheese. Dommage.
