The Merry Baker, Port Louis. Grenada, West Indies.

The best baked goods in Grenada, at the best prices. 
Looking for a legit delicious cinnamon bun in Grenada?  Look no further. It may be that I've just been away too long from American cinnamon buns that's making this bun more appealing, but either way, I must say that as of now, this bakery has got to have the best cinnamon bun (they call them "Chelsea Buns") in the whole world.  They're always baked fresh daily and infuse the bakery with a heavenly fresh cinnamon aroma.  What do I love about this bun?...  The fact that they're always perfectly balanced and not to mention, well presented.  The last time I visited this bakery last week, I ate two of them.  Initially, I bought one for myself and one for my husband, but the one for my husband didn't make it home on the bus ride...  instead it found its way into my stomach hahahaha.  My husband understood why such an incident would happen. 

They also have other baked goods that are worth trying out.  I've only tasted about 6 other baked treats (which all have been pleasant- peanut cookies, frankie dog (MmM), chicken and mayo bun, ham bun, olive bread (Mmm), whole wheat loaf (Mmm), and I can guarantee you that I will try everything else they have to offer before I leave Grenada this May.

Did I mention that this bakery is located in one of cutest spots in Grenada, Port Louis, and is run by the cutest couple (Merry and Nigel) with the cutest little story?  Check out their website below to find out how the magic all started.  Also, their baked goods are South African style which is so cool and unique.

They also did some catering for a friend's daughter's birthday party.  They make custom little apple pies with star shaped crust topping and they turned out just delicious.  There were also a few other baked treats that were also awesome.  My friend was one happy customer with one happy daughter (pictures immediately below). 

And lastly,  they sell their goods at Saint George's University on certain days (details below) so you don't have to make a trip out to their bakery, though I must say, that it would be more than worth your time to get out there to check out their cute little bakery (also check out Port Louis). 

I hope you make it out to try their delicious baked goods.  I wish I found out about them back in Aug. 2011.
