We are in Aruba now and will be here until close to Easter. I remember a thread about delicious pastries available this time of year. What do you suggest I look for? Bread, pastries and chocolate are things I love enjoying here.

We found a small bakery in Noord this past January and it is awesome. I do not know the name but if you go past Bingo and take a left at the lights it is about a half mile on the right. They even make individual size pizzas that are good. They are also much less money than Superfoods. We bought 4 apple turnovers and 2 pizzas and spent $8.00. All fresh. You need to get there fairly early but it is worth it.
My wife buys the Dutch chocolate at Superfoods and we also bring about 10 packages home. Some have nuts and raisins in them. Very good. They can be found around the bakery.

This is Bruno's. He started out making bread for the local restaurants, expanded into making a few pastries. Now he is busy with both the bread and pastries. The turnovers are delicious!!

Since you are asking about pastries that are typical of this time of the year, you can find Eastern bread (paasstol in Dutch) at Super Food. Eat it with a thick layer real butter with a cup of coffee. There will also be some cakes and ofcourse chocolate eggs.

That's right, I couldn't remember the correct name, besides Bruno is easier to spell. :lol: Thanks, and I believe the spelling is correct. LeDelizia Pasteria ?

Thanks everyone for the replies. I'll check these out. Dutchdushi, you were right, I was looking for types of pastry. I remembered you describing one available at Christmas or New Years. At home there is always hot cross buns at Easter. I'll look for the bread you mentioned.

This paasstol is the same as the one we eat with Christmas. We were talking about this on this forum before, you are absolutely right. I hope you enjoy it.
