La Pasión — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Bakery, Tea • $-$$$ • (H)
In a city that is a dream come true for coffee lovers, as luck would have it, to get a decent cup of tea, tea lovers have to schlep just over a mile from the Zócalo to the La Pasión bakery, located in the farthest northern point of the Colonia Reforma. There, they'll find more than a dozen imported black, green, and oolong loose-leaf teas to choose from. That said, La Pasión is primarily a European-style bakery specializing in cakes and pastries, enticingly displayed for you as you step through the front door.
