Delikat Celebrating 14 years in Business!


vday cakeDelikat, a local business dedicated to the elaboration and sale of cakes, pies, pastries, cookies and muffins, is celebrating their 14th year in business!  Through ups and downs, trial and error, Delikat still remains a true Paceño success story.  For well over a decade, poco a poco, the brand has grown from 1 to 4 locations in Southern Baja.  Delikat also supplies local coffee shops and restaurants with their commercial baked goods line.

José Ramón Leal Hirales, a La Paz native, studied to be a pastry chef in the United States and spent ten years working and learning in bakeries in the San Francisco Bay area.  However, in late 1998, he felt it was time to follow his dream. Jose and his wife, Patricia Patron, a business administration graduate, decided to come back to their roots and families in La Paz and open their very own bakery.  For a year, Jose worked on his recipes and formulas, perfecting them for specialty cakes, frostings and pies. He also built his own reproduction workshop and trained staff during that time.

Delikat opened in 2000 on Marquez de Leon Street in La Paz and over the past fourteen years, they have expanded to other parts of the city and even dabbled in the Cabo market for a while.

Their main store in La Paz is located on 4495 Jazmin and Blvd. Colosio, just up from Volkswagen.   They are also located on Lic. Verdad between 5 de Febrero and Navarro, and in Plaza Sur, out past the state university on Carretera Sur at km 8.10.   You can find Delikat in Camino Real, a La Paz neighborhood out on the way to Cabo.

With much needed road repair closing several streets in La Paz, several businesses have taken a hit in sales and Delikat is no exception.  Both the Colosio and Lic. Verdad locations had their roads closed in front of their storefronts for several months. But Jose says it is just part of doing business. “Yes, it has been difficult for us with the streets closed.  Last year Colosio was closed and now, Lic. Verdad is being repaired but you just keep going.  Yes, we saw a drop of sales but you just keep working hard and look for new ways to bring in business.”

Whether you are looking for your once in a lifetime amazing wedding cake (like I was), an unbelievable birthday cake or you simply have a craving for a great cake for dessert, head to Delikat at any one of their locations and either order your specialty cake for the next day or grab one from their display case that is ready to go.
