New(ish) Guatemalan Bakery in Dorchester

Hi, I've passed by a place on Freeport Street & Dot Ave (close to DBar) called Panaderia y Reposteria Chapina (Guatemalan Bakery and Desserts) a couple of times. Window signs promise baked goods, snacks / appetizers and desserts. It looks intriguing, but I don't know anything at all about Guatemalan food. Has anyone visited this place? Any general thoughts about tasty traditional Guatemalan chow or suggestions on things to order?

Thanks 'hounds!

  1. I have some students in town from Guatemala & would also like suggestions for where to send them e.g. Eastie, JP, Dot...

    1. I walked by the place the other day. Looks interesting, and there were several people inside. Please go there and report back to us!

        2. Unless they have changed hands, they have been there for at least a year or more. I have gone there a couple of times but not recently. Food was OK but if you are craving Guatemalan food it definitely works.

          1. For more on Guatemalan baked goods than most people would want to know, see one of rw orange's recent posts:
