Smeterling Patisserie

Posted on November 27, 2012 by Vivi in DESSERT, RESTAURANTS

One day, we wandered through Recoleta, admiring the French architecture on our way to brunch.  I was rambling on about how I would remodel the back yard of the Brazilian Ambassador’s mansion, if I lived there, and pre-debating whether I wanted a cappuccino or just an espresso at our upcoming brunch when we passed Smeterling.

Smeterling is Recoleta’s Patisserie Darling, as any well-informed foodie or food blogger will tell you.  I halted and dragged Dean to the window display to admire the sugar.  Oh the beautiful, glorious sugary sweetness!

I squealed in delight of the serendipitous happenstance of coming across this photogenic bakery while being accompanied by a photographer.  Brunch reservation be damned, we entered into a brightly colored candy land of pastries and cupcakes.

Go here for me, because summer is coming and I’m on a diet.

PS – Sugar is bad for you.


  1. If I lived by that store I would weigh 5oo pounds ! I wonder if it tastes as good as it looks?

  2. Vina,
    Easy on the sugar comment. We make our living growing sugar. There are only 15 calories in a teaspoon!
