Took a chance on trying a new restaurant today through Uber Eats and was completely wowed with Bakery Makel! The Cuban and Beef Empanada was delicious. Great portions on both. Definitely eating here again soon! More...
Wow! This place is amazing! If you want the best empanadas around, go here! I highly recommend the Cuban empanada! It's like the Cuban sandwich but in an empanada! so fire! Also their coffees are bomb! They also serve a bunch of pastries aka pastalitos (spelling?)! More...
Everything is so so amazingly delicious! Obsessed with those empanadas!
I freaking love the steak sandwiches here! This is the only place I know of in Pinellas County that you can buy pastelitos and other Spanish pastries. Their Cuban is delicious, I actually haven't had anything bad here. The customer service is awesome. I recommend this place to all my friends and I've gotten a few ppl hooked already. More...
I just visited this place from Virginia State, and it was amazing. Love the 3 leches, the quesitos, the cafe con leche, the empanadas, oh my... Everything! Please visit, you won't be disappointed. More...
This place is great! As good or better than some of my favorite Miami cuban bakeries. Highly recommend the cuban sandwhich and guava/cheese pastries. I haven't had anything that hasn't been very good. Coroquettas, empanadas, flan, rice pudding, canolis... they have all of my favorites More...
Yummy! The empanadas are they best! I love the chicken & cheese and pizza empanadas. And the staff are very nice ladies. Definitely recommend this place!

Great Customer service !!! And good food !
Delicious bakery goods! Love the beef empanadas and the breakfast cuban!
Best Cuban sandwiches in the bay I know this is a bold statement but stop by and try them if you don’t believe me, also well known for breakfast sandwiches and incredible cafe con leche.

Pastry is exceptional and their cafe con leche is superior to the mud others try to pass off as coffee.
Best place love it ❤
Bakery Makel is a must stop when visiting Clearwater. Everything is fantastic and fresh. From the coffee to the deserts to the sandwiches. And if you need a decorated cake for a special occasion, the bakery offers some amazing talent when it comes to cake decorations. ❤️ More...
I've been here a few times, and I'll be back for sure. Best cup of coffee I've had. Brandy cake is amazing! The food is great! And I love the people behind the counter! What a great place hiding in this little strip mall More...

Recomiendo Bakery Makel todo es exquisito y muy fresco y la atención es excelente.
Breakfast empanadas are amazing!
Excellent sandwiches and pastries. Spanish/European small shop flair
Ummm.....my co worker just handed me an empanadia from this place. I just gobbled that up for breakfast. Soooooo good
Cake came out exceptional when it comes to the flavor to the way it was decorated, the owner is very understanding and she will accommodate to your needs and liking. All of our guests at our wedding loved the flavor of the cake and we even had some left over for our guests to take home with them. More...
Muy buen servicio
Since moving to FL 25 years ago I have not been able to find a decent bakery like we had in the northeast until I found this place. Had a dinner party that we had to attend and wanted a special desert other than publix and Walmart bakery items. Well I sure did find it! Not only did they look beautiful on the serving tray they tasted awesome and everyone commented on how they weren’t the typical grocery store bakery item. I bought a little of everything they had left of sweet pasty and they were all delicious!! More...

My mother is Colombian and one thing I have missed were guava based treats. Bakery Makel has one of the most delicious Guava & Cheese Pastries - add it to my coffee and it is like being with family!
Dulces muy buenos
This place is amazing!!!!! The employees!! The owner!! The bake goods!!! O.M.G is an out of this world experience!!
Great food and great service!!!
Best sandwiches ever
Wunderbare, kleine Bäckerei mit vielen Köstlichkeiten und SEHR gutem Kaffee. Mein Geheimtipp für ein super Frühstück, oder auch was Süßes + Kaffee für Zwischendurch. Toller Laden, super Qualität, sehr nette Leute. More...
Delicious pastries and breakfast sandwiches. Stop by.
My favorite place for cafe con leche and pastries.
Amazing and not two sweet. Very good coffee
The pastries and Puerto Rican style cakes are amazing. Very warm and welcoming. Their service is great. My son's birthday cake was exactly what I hoped and asked for.
Delicious pastries and super friendly!

This bakery post came up in my newsfeed and knew i needed to try it. Sent my husband, who was out running errands, there immediately for the empanadas lol. He returned with 2 of the flakiest, crispiest, yummiest empanadas i have had! We have been back for cuban sandwiches, fresh baked cuban bread, breakfast sandwiches, flan and cafe con leche. 3 visits in a week and a half. Glad its close to home. More...
Stumbled across this Latin bakery while headed to Clearwater Beach. Spoke to the owner and she told me about her Executive Chef. She's an award winning pastry chef who's been in the business for over 30 years. She bakes massive wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and other types of fancy desserts. She also specializes in Latin bakery products. I got a few empanadas and my girlfriend got some sort of sandwich. We spit it, and it was amazing! We left with some desserts and ate them at the beach! Highly recommended! More...
Best breakfast in Florida. Fantastic food, super coffee, great people. Thank you very much for your hospitaliti.
Walking into this bakery is like walking into my grandmothers home. The food is incredible and homemade, prices are reasonable and the staff treats you like family. I highly recommend this bakery to anyone who is looking for the best Cuban in town and the smoothest cafe con leche. More...

Just went in for a few pastelitos and they were amazing!!! Can't wait to go back and try their Cuban and steak sandwiches!
Top of the line pastry chef. 2 thumbs up ��
A diamond in the rough. All types of delights..don't see what you crave? She'll create it.
I love this place! Can't wait to go back and get more! Highly recommend!
Luv this place!! Haven't had such great pasteles de guava and Cuban bread since I was living in Miami. The owner is wonderful.
The drive from Tampa to Clearwater was worth it amazing food and wonderful owners will definitely will be making the drive back.

What a hidden treasure. Amazing talent and love put into all they do. The food was delicious. We had the breakfast choices and of course the Cuban coffee. On our list for lunch next time. You've got to check this place out! More...
I have been looking everywhere for authentic pastelito de guayaba. Each time, I've been disappointed by either too much phyllo dough or too little guava. But this morning, I found the real deal at Bakery Makel.
The owner and her associate were so helpful and welcoming,
I know it will be a struggle to keep off all of the weight I've lost now that temptation is right down the street. More...
Just visited yesterday. Very happy to have Bakery Makel on this side of Tampa Bay. I've grown to love Latin sandwiches and pastries over the last ten years, but have always had to drive to Tampa to get it. Pinellas has very few truly authentic Cuban, Puerto Rican, or Colombian places so having Bakery Makel here is wonderful. Their Cuban and steak sandwiches were totally on point and delicious. And the pastries and flan we ordered were also excellent. Highly recommend! More...
Awesome people! I could not be happier with our cake! I live in another state and wanted a cake for my grand daughters birthday, it was short notice but they agreed to do the cake, I sent several pictures as possibilities since it was short notice. When I called to check to see if it was complete for my son to pick up the young man took my number and texted me a picture, it turned out very cute and I couldn't be happier! I would recommend them and will use them again. Thank You! Sunshine cake More...
The owner makes this place feel like home. She is so welcoming.
The food is the best.
No other like it around the area
Really good I had a Media Noche and a cafe cubano. Delicious! the pastries looked amazing I will return to taste soon.
Nice friendly staff, if you don' know what something they will take the time explain it.
Best cafe con leche I ever had. Guava pastry, and guava and cheese is yummy. So much to try, cuban bread....try let us know More...
Today was my first visit. I ordered a few things and my favorite was the Cuban sandwich. Service was really good both ladies were very sweet and friendly. One of the ladies said she lived in Miami for over 30 years and I think the Cuban sandwich has been the best I've had outside of Miami. Will continue to try new things, I am a little picky with certain foods and pregnancy definitely has my pallet a little sensitive with the fried foods . So I would have to rate those later on.

Now this place is a real treat. Their sandwiches are delicious because the owner/baker/caretaker of the place pours her heart out On every meal. In trust me just as I can tell you will be able to tell as well. The place is not expensive although it may lack a place to sit down this delicious hole in the wall makes up with flavor and an unheard of 'can do' attitude. The owner can do anything that you can dream of when it comes to sweets. More...
Maria Isabel Melendez
I haven been a client since she opened. All the pastries are delicious, the bistec sandwich (steak sandwich ) is to die for, the bread is really good, and the cakes are perfect. I ordered two birthday cakes 4 months ago and everybody loved those. Stop by and "buen provecho (enjoy your meal )! More...
Best quesitos I have ever eat...
