Madrid European Bakery
199 Wayland Avenue, Providence
Stepping into Madrid European Bakery has the same feeling of stepping off a plane and into the city itself – and that’s just the point. Owners Sergio Mendoza and Hercilia Corona have made their space on Wayland Avenue into a feast for the senses, from the decor to the heavenly aromas to the gorgeous (and delectable) pastries.
As Madrid’s sole baker, Mendoza expertly crafts every morsel of deliciousness served at the bakery, including custard tarts, eclairs, costrada and creme brulee croissants. If sitting inside, you could see him hard at work right from your seat, kneading and folding the next batch of goodies. And speaking of seats, the marble-topped cafe tables are the perfect touch to make your experience truly feel like a little piece of European heaven.
No sweet is complete without a coffee and Madrid has you covered there, too. Pair your pastry with a variety options like Americano, cappuccino, cortado, espresso or latte. Not a huge coffee person? No worries. There’s matcha, chai and even hot chocolate, too!
Our suggestion: The strawberry and cream-filled croissant rendered us completely speechless. So, that.
