Panadería Cafetería Salduba – Calle Marqués de Estella, 1, San Pedro de Alcántara Hours: Mon-Sun 9-21
In the bakery in Avenida de Nabeul, gluten-free cakes are kept separate from the others in a dedicated refrigerator.
When you buy something the clerk uses a special tool and put the cake into a little bag or in a paper tray. The salted products are individually sealed in plastic bags.
I went there late in the morning and so the choice was not so much (as you can see in the photo), I assume that in the early morning there are more things.
I took a slice of cheesecake, topped with a strawberry jam and a roll, that I warmed up at home, in the oven, for about 10 minutes.
The cheesecake was delicious; the bread heated was very good, soft on the inside and with a very crispy crust, one of the best gluten-free bread I ever eat. I ate a small piece before heating and it was good even so, however, it’s a bit rubbery (like when the bread is old of a day), so definitely better heat it.
I spent € 4.60 for a slice of cheesecake, a roll and a chocolate donut (this one with gluten).
In the bakery near the Plaza de Toros, gluten-free cakes are kept in a dedicated section, while the bread is individually sealed.
Here I bought 3 cakes and 2 rolls for € 9.70: I took a cream muffin, a piece of carrot cake and a brownie with chocolate and nuts.
The cream muffin (it was a simple vanilla muffin with a drop of custard on the top) was yummy, the chocolate brownie was good, but more than a brownie, it was a chocolate square with nuts, good, but a little “heavy”. The carrot cake was with lots of cinnamon in it and for me the cinnamon flavor is disgusting, so I couldn’t eat it. My husband ate it and for him was very good.
To finish the best: I went to have breakfast at the new café-bakery of San Pedro de Alcántara, a small town near Marbella.
Address: Calle Marqués de Estella, 1 San Pedro Alcántara
The place is really nice and the staff is kind and friendly: here there is a dedicated laboratory for gluten-free and so there is a large dedicated section with plenty of choices (it isn’t a store exclusively gluten-free, there are also counters with cakes and bread with gluten).
In the café, in addition to cakes, they also serve savory (sandwiches, salads and more) and you may have gluten-free even those.
For breakfast, I took the cheesecake, that I liked so much, and a cappuccino (very good).
With 2 cappuccinos, the cheesecake and 2 cakes with gluten (for my husband) we spent € 8.20. The price of the portion of cheesecake is € 2.50.
In conclusion, I can say that you can’t miss these bakeries!
