ahahn Offline
I have been reading many posts new and old, and I have found several references to the need for a bakery. I own property in Corozal and my family and I are looking for a needed business so that we could establish residency and make enough to live a simple life in a beautiful country. I know most of you chatting here are on centered around the cayes, but what about a bakery in Corozol that delivered to SP a few times a week. I have two outstanding bakers in my family that are interested in coming with me. Your thoughts on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

With a bit of luck SP will have a new bakery soon. The fellow concerned has been producing excellent bread in Cayo for some time.

Hi ahahn I would go and test the flour and eggs and such they are very diffrent. A good crusty bread that is soft in the middle greatly needed.
But do your research on ingredients. Aslo a good rye and whole wheat bread.

I'm going to try it for breakfast tomorrow morning SIN. Thanks for the recommendation:-)

San Pedro has had its own French bakery for a month or so now, Sean Bachet having let his most senior employee in Cayo take over the business there while Sean and family moved here. They're renting the Hacal Kiik premises and producing really good bread and pastries. But his rent is very high and Hacal Kiik is a bit hidden, so he's struggling in these early months. To make sure he makes it through to high season please spread the word that his products are REALLY GOOD and worth a slight detour from your usual itinerary. You can see the airstrip apron from his front door so it really isn't that far off the beaten track.

I know man can't live on tourists alone, but have they put flyers in all the hotel rooms in town?

It is more than worth it. We now go there every day it is open if we can. We are turning more and more people on to it. I spent summers in the alps in France as a kid and I can tell you that the bread is French authentic. Oh I love this bakery so much I could (fill in the gap as appropriate)!

I am trying to locate Shelly Arceo-Huber. She was involved in the Bakery when it opened. Does anyone know if she is still there or where she can be found. Lost touch with an old friend. Sure do love her cooking!!

#262498 - 01/11/08 05:02 AM Re: A Bakery???? [Re: orb56]
She operated a different bakery in the same building. No connection with the current business other than as landlord (or related to).

After a lot of doubts about paying the rent when they first opened, the business now seems to be thriving and Sean has taken on an assistant to help with the baking. Certainly the products seem of a universally high standard. Popular with my divers.

Thanks pedro. So you say Shelly is no longer in the bakery business? Any idea where she is now? Is she still in San Pedro or did she move back to Belize City?

Shelly is still here on the island...

She is busy trying to set up her new business out of her home. She is still doing catering and baking upon request.

You can email moniquecp@hotmail.com or call her at 501-226-2447

Would someone mind marking the new bakery on the wikimapia map?

Now back to your regularly scheduled drivel...

It's on the map already but it's misnamed as El Fogon.

Go to the top of the airstrip and roll around. You'll find 2 El Fogons. The French bakery is the furthest east and the smaller of the two. I just wrote a comment to that effect on the description.

Great coffee and gigantic cinnamon rolls, btw.

I changed the name to French Bakery.

You can use the Menu to Edit Page and change the name if there is an actual store name.

How often do they update the maps on that? I went to the view of the Peninsula (Placencia) and it was obviously way out of date.

The maps come from Google Maps, so it's as up-to-date as google is. I've seen recent updates to imagry here in vegas, so I know it does get updated. But the remote areas are probably upated much less frequently.

This place is really good. High quality breads are hard to find when you're on the road, and the French Bakery is as good as I've seen. The baguettes have a perfect interior with a chewy crust, and the cinnamon rolls are almost as good as my grandma's were. Delicious!

Is the French bakery open on Sunday? And how late? I am sure that they will be sold out by the time we arrive, but one can always hope.
