Some experiences are central to a culture because they are like windows allowing you to peep inside a home. Visiting an old-time Goan bakery is one such. Many of the bakeries in Goa go back more than 20 years, and some like Snow’s Bakery in Margao, Geeta Bakery in Panjim and Cafe St. Anthony in Siolim go back four decades or more. Often housed in heritage structures, they make the most delicious of snacks, sweets and cakes every day, serving them fresh to their equally long-time patrons.
Look up the history, locations, best-selling items and contact details for each of these bakeries in the links below.
