A new bakery and cafe opened last month in the Eagle Hill section of East Boston, serving a selection of Colombian and Salvadoran breads, pastries, cakes, and more cafe fare. La Casa Del Pandebono — which takes its name from Colombian cheese bread, pandebono — is now in business at 271 Meridian St., in the former East Boston House of Pizza space. There’s a bit of room inside for seating.
In addition to items like empanadas and pupusas, La Casa Del Pandebono serves guava pastries, cookies, slices of cake, and coffee and other beverages. It also provides custom cakes and displays an array of possibilities on its Facebook page, showing off fruit-topped single-tier cakes, kids’ birthday cakes with multiple tiers, and more.
Early customers are praising the tres leches cake and guava and caramel pastries, as well as the staff’s friendliness.
La Casa Del Pandebono operates from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and until 8 p.m. on Sunday.
