Candy Cake

Written by’s Local Expert


Whether you're stopping by for a quick coffee break or taking time to indulge in a delicious breakfast with dessert, Candy Cake is the perfect spot for locals and tourists!


Candy Cake's story began in November of 2000. As the first coffee shop with an espresso bar, Candy Cake stood out from the rest. Word spread quickly about the amazing culinary delights being made in Candy Cake's Kitchen. Today, this pastry shop has been in town for over two decades now. They offer breakfast, lunch, coffee, and of course, cakes. It's a family business with the most focus being on their pastries and bakery. However, as their popularity began to grow, they had to find new ways to diversify their menu. While providing the best possible options for their customers, without losing focus on quality food and passion for service.

What makes Candy Cake so popular?

One unique thing about the cafe is that it offers such a wide variety of options for coffee, tea, and food. There's everything from pancakes and waffles to egg sandwiches and chilaquiles. The lunch menu also features salads, sandwiches, pasta, and dishes specially created by Candy Cake chefs. This menu of 32 dishes and seasonal specials gives people the opportunity to try something new every visit!

The cafe has a light-hearted, lively vibe to it. They offer various seating options including couches and tables. That way, people can relax and enjoy the environment a while.

The executive chef behind this popular hub is Marilyn Annissa Nunez Hernandez. She graduated from the Universidad del Valle del Mexico, did her internship at the hotel "Grand Velas" in the Riviera Maya. Then, her talent led her across the Atlantic ocean to work in the city of Valencia, Spain. She had the opportunity to work alongside acclaimed Michelin star restaurant "Vertical" by Group La Sucursal. Today, she runs this incredible Cafe right here in Rocky Point.

Some must try items:

Arrachera Sonora

Sonoran-style food is some of the best in the world, and this dish is here to prove it! This plate includes marinated arrachera, California chile stuffed with cheese, guacamole, and beans. This dish is perfect for any occasion, we know you'll love it! So give it a try next time.

Omelet de Chilaquiles

Dare to try this Egg Omelet with crispy corn tortillas and red or green sauce. We highly recommend trying this with both sauces! In addition, it has melted cheese and cilantro cream, white cream, and grilled onions on top. On the side, you'll have house potatoes and beans.

Pancakes & French Toast

Satisfy your sweet tooth with the delicious Candy Cake take on pancakes or french toast. Pancakes come with two ingredients that you can choose. Options include various fruits and savory toppings as well. Such as, ham, bacon, and eggs.

Lasagna a la Bolognese

This dish is only available seasonally but it's definitely worth asking about if you're visiting this popular cafeteria. Lasagna bolognese with handmade pasta, vegetables, and panarosa sauce, it's simply delicious!

Is there something this place doesn't have? The coffee is amazing, the food is always on time, hot and delicious, especially the green chilaquiles with beans, I love them! and the service is always excellent, the personnel is always smiling and the place is always very clean!

Candy Cake is a must-visit spot! I had the most delightful coffee break here, and the breakfast with dessert was truly indulgent. Highly recommend it for both locals and tourists! 5 stars!
Candy Cake is the best! The atmosphere here is so lively and fun. The donuts are also the best I've ever had here in rockypoint! I'm so glad I discovered this spot. Furthermore, we saw someone celebrating their birthday right next to our table, so they served them free dessert with a happy birthday song, honestly that was a very nice gesture from the staff.

My family and I love going to Candy Cake for breakfast and at the end of breakfast enjoy their delicious cakes and coffee, it is a very busy place so if you go on a Sunday I recommend you arrive early. They also have courtesy cakes for birthday boys and you can have small gatherings to celebrate.
