Manolo’s Bakery Reviews
This place has been on my radar for a while so I’m glad we finally stopped by.
I didn’t know what a lot of things in the pastry case were, but one of the employees was helpful in explaining them.
My husband and I ended up getting:
– Strawberry Concha
– Some kind of passion fruit pastry
– Peach Tres Leches
– Passion Fruit Tres Leches
The Concha was more of a sweet bread than a pastry to me, but I enjoyed it. I wasn’t a big fan of the passion fruit pastry because it was very dry and bready. It wasn’t sweet and didn’t have a passion fruit flavor.
I think the cakes are where they shine. I loved both tres leches that we got, but the passion fruit one really stood out. It had that punch of passion fruit I was looking for.
I’d gladly come back to try more!
Zero star if possible. This was the third birthday cake that we ordered from this bakery.
Every time the quality and the taste of the cake was decrease comparison with previous time.
This time which was the last time ever we ordered from this bakery our order was taken by Amy. Poor in communication and very complicated in explanation.
The cake that we got WAS NOT THE CAKE WE ORDERED.
Don’t waste your time and money there.
We always make a point to stop at a bakery when traveling through Latin America, so I can’t believe it took us this long to make it to Manolo’s! Out of the three items we ordered, two really stood out: the chicken empanada, and the cheese-filled pastry pictured. We had just eaten lunch, or perhaps we would have walked out with more! Next time we’ll come hungry.
It was a good experience for the 1st visit. This is a local bakery hidden in plain sight on central. I went in with a gf who had been talking about this place. I got a sample of a lot of baked goodies which I don’t remember the name of. But the chiroz was my fav so far. When you enter go to your right to grab a glove and tong with a tray then head to the table were the goodies are. They have all sorts of breads as well and about 6 kinds of trees leches. I know I’m ordering a cake soon as they looked soo good and fresh. Yep. I highly recommend this place as it’s worth the visit.
I came in today around 5pm September 3rd and purchased several pastries. One specifically was a slice of Oreo cake covered in mold! As a customer you expect quality control and trust that you are given something that’s safe to eat. I am utterly angry because the pastry belonged to my son! If I hadn’t gone over to try some I wouldn’t have noticed and he would have eaten it all not knowing that something is off because all a child sees is a cake! I have worked in the food service industry as a cashier and my job was to inspect everything that was given out… The fact that this was missed is ridiculous. It wasn’t just a bit of mold, but a lot all around the frosting and bottom of the cake. I do not believe that it was freshly made that day nor even the day before. It’s upsetting that I’m having to write this review.
My family is obsessed with their breads, flan, and cakes. I have been looking around for a good panadería for awhile now so I decided to check this place out. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be coming back and recommending to everyone!
Manolo’s is truly a hidden gem. My wife and I have been coming here for a while now for baked goods and cakes – their tres leches cakes are the best we’ve ever had. They’re so good, in fact, that we hired Manolo’s to supply the cakes for our wedding. The staff was super easy to work with, they nailed the design we had in mind, and the result was delicious.
Got the tiramisu from here, it is so fresh and flavorful! The service was great and I will definitely be returning.
I have never been here before, but I contacted them for a catering quote for my workplace. I regret even calling there for information. They lack customer service skills. Replies like: What are you calling me for? What do you need? Why are you reaching out to us by phone, if you need services you need to stop by in person… etc. Clearly, I was following up on an electronic quote we made as a business entity. We just needed to confirm the delivery of services, but I couldn’t even get past the phone conversation. Total Disappointment. FYI, we will not be using or recommending their services.
What’s good instafam. Manolo’s Bakery, Charlotte’s first Hispanic bakery, serves a variety of pastries, cakes, candies, cookies – basically any sweet you can think of. The store was clean and the staff were kind and attentive. I tried the Tres Leches at the recommendation of a friend and it was . Seriously tho, y’all be missing out if you haven’t checked this place. Go support their business. Until next time you batches
