    In the meantime visit we bought 2 small individual pies then we have them enjoy in the Sun. They were good. A lot of people a bus of 50 people. Very friendly visit must love the crowd. What j found really very helpful Baker to reassembled the bus people who were struggling to market (it in fact the rise with his car 3 ×) hat. However the Museum is very poorly located parking above a great descent to walk. For the disabled pers.a a parking is down near the Museum but it must look out because not well reported.

    This place has the name Museum: we see only five or six utensils that were used in the last century. Tour (€8) is really just a "show" of the master Baker who declines with some humor (sometimes a bit heavy) of the basque cake recipe. If he is lucky to have a because of tourists in front of him (during our visit, we were 20 individuals and more of the car), is assured success (for him...) For the price, you'd expect a real tasting but no! Everyone has right to an of dough, sand and two small cubes of basque cake (a cream) and one cherry. And the distribution is ensured by the leader and his assistant who are so sure that nobody will take two miserable pieces! If you want the recipe for the basque cake, so go your way and see the website. You save €8. A tourist trap!

    Great the host super fun funny. It explains well. The cakes are to die for. The setting is nice. Easy to access for people with reduced mobility. Parking close.

    I went to the store to buy a cake which I had read of the property. It was good, standard, but not above the rest. Too bad. The framework is quite nice, and it seems to have lunch!

    Very good discovery and explanations at the top, my taste buds loved tasting! Nothing that the smell upon entering the shop puts you the mouth water! I recommend this activity which is a must to visit and know the area.

    The cake is good, because it is fresh daily. Instead of a Museum, it's more a factory with a bit of history: a pastry workshop. Worth it to buy the cake only.

    The presentation made by the pastry chef was very good. Explanations in the joy and good humor. We see that the Baker is passionate.
