The rolling process has also been streamlined to be able to quickly produce as many Cachitos as anyone could want. -What are Golfeados?Golfeados are a traditional Venezuelan dessert, similar in looks to the Cinnamon roll but spiced with Aniseed, Cheese and Cane Sugar. -What does Golfeado mean?Golfeado is nothing more the name of the pastry, although the word Golfeado calls to mind the puffy quality of the pastry.

We revisited the wonderful city of Montreal last month and realised this place was just behind our hotel. We had sought it out last time, but they were in the process of moving premises.

The place was tiny, but the service and food were excellent and unusual. I had the beef and cheese version, which had a generous filling and was full of flavour. We were served by the owner, who was very helpful and gave us a brief insight into Venezuelan food. Was very cheap too, a must try in Montreal, if you fancy a bit of a break from the norm.

Authentically Venezuelan. Great taste, great service. They even carry taqueños and Goya juices. I broke with the norm and had a chocolate cachito and Guanabana juice. The rest of the fam had ham and cheese cachitos and coffee. Exactly what we were looking for.

This cute little shop was just down the street from our hotel, a perfect stroll on a brisk morning. When we entered the two ladies working behind the counter were super friendly and inviting. They greeted us in French, which we no very little of, and we indicated we speak English so they switched over. My husband who is fluent in Spanish then realized they spoke Spanish and responded accordingly. They were surprised and excited to speak Spanish with him, and we then had a great coversation with them. They really made us feel welcome.

We asked which were the best cachitos and then picked two to share. The most popular is the ham and cheese, and it was obvious why. It was delicious with plenty of cheese melting out of it. It was served with a sauce on the side that my husband really liked. The other flavor we tried was the fourth most popular, the guava and cheese. We both loved it. The sweet fruit with the saltiness of the cheese was an amazing combination.

Although we won't likely be back in Montreal anytime soon we would definitely come back here. If you are in the area, this is a can't-be-missed restaurant.

We were warmly greeted by the Venezuelan owner. She promptly offered us samples since we were clueless. It was love at first bite. Cachitos can be liken to "hot pockets", but are far superior. What is not to like with freshly baked, soft bread filled with savoury or sweet items. The ham & cheese, chorizo & cheese, spinach and cheese, & chocolate cachitos were highly addicting. Paired with strong coffee & a smile and you have a perfect breakfast trifecta.
