Stumbled onto this place . Couldn't believe the different cakes they sold . The staff were busy but very friendly. Wish I had tried more but how much sugar can you have at once.

A great selection of cakes and pastries, from bite-size cakes and pastries to large gateaus, not to mention the traditional Bilbao cakes/buns/pastries, i.e. bollo de mantequilla, pastel de arroz, jesuita, etc. You can buy the items individually, have them boxed and delivered, as well as...More

Que yo sepa no, pero como tampoco tengo problems con gluten, igual es que no haya prestado atención. Ya lo siento no poder ser más preciso.
