Cornejos Bakery

As you start to spend more time in Rocky Point, or even become a semi-local, you pick up your own familiar places where you go to get the every day things yoou need. Tire repair, banking, dentists, all of the normal stuff is here. A panaderia is the name for a bakery, and one that gains new fans even after years in the business is Panaderia Cornejo.

Half of Cornejos is a neighborhood tiendita, the kind of local grocery store that was everywhere and the only option not too many years ago. Newer and bigger shopping options on the one hand , and convenience store chains on the other have pushed these small places aside. But Cornejos persists because it is also a very popular bakery, with a history going back to it’s original location on the Old Port district.

Not familiar with Mexican bakeries? They are not exactly like those in the U.S., as of course you would expect. Yes there are donuts and baguettes, But there are uniquely Mexican Conchas, shell shaped bread glazed with a sweet topping. Orejas (ears) are , well, ear shapped layers of dogh, king of like baklava. Cornejos has dense banana bread pudding squares as well as traditional cochitos, pig shaped ginger cookies. ALl of it tends to be a llittle less sweet than what you find in a U.S. bakery, and that is by design. These pan dulces are meant to compliment a nice cup of coffee.

    I am not an expert on Mexican bakeries, but a lot of what Cornejos makes tastes really good! I like trying the unfamiliar things, even if that can be hit or miss. I have found things that are great, and like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. And the maple donuts are as good as back home.
