Richmond - Panaderia Guatemalteca - new Guatemalan bakery

This is really a Guatemalan bakery, not a Mexican bakery selling a few Guatemalan items.

Here's a run down of what they sell

They bake all day and you can request some of the above hot from the oven if they are available.

I saw a Pollo Compero box on the counter. This is a Guatemalan chicken chain. My Guatemalan inlaws like it a lot. On Friday afternoons they will sell Pollo Compero (chicken only). It is coming up from Los Angeles so obviously not fried to order. However if you have a Pollo Compero craving, this is probably the only place to get it locally.

They are still settling in, but hope some time in the future to have Guatemalan tamales.

So far my favorites from the bakery are the lenguas, frances, royals, campechanas, roscas and champurradas ... I especially like those.

The sweet breads/cookies are in the case to the right and the other case is supposed to be breads that are not sweet, but the top two shelves seemed to have a little sweetness to the rolls. Those rolls on the top two shelves are all made from the same dough, only different shapes.

Places is not allowing me to edit the address so here it is ...

Richmond, CA 94804

Closed Sunday Mon-Sat 8am - 8pm (it is new, so I'd call if going either at start or end time to be sure they are open).
