La Playita Paceña
Across the street from Pan D' Les is a car wash/parking area where one can drop off a vehicle for a sparkling wash or for two pesos, leave the car for up to 15 minutes while you shop for bread.
Adjacent to the carwash is the restaurant La Playita Paceña.
La Playita opens mid-morning for breakfast of eggs al gusto (meaning any way you want) plus coffee or Coke and it'll set you back 35 pesos.
Not up for eggs for breakfast? The house specialty is a torta de camarones and on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the shrimp sandwich or for that matter, any of the other tortas offered are two for 40 pesos, regularly 30 pesos each. In addition to sandwiches, comida corrida plus a hamburguesa with fries for 25 pesos, the year- and-a-half-old restaurant has television and a pool table for your use and enjoyment.
The dining room boasts matching entirely non-resin tables and painted earthenware crocks filled with aguas frescas. Playita Paceña is open 10 to 5
Ocampo between revolucion and madero, be sure to stop by the bakery for dessert after your meal. ¡provecho!

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
