Guam's best bakeries: Pop's Bake Shop in Agat

by Arlene Castro
The Guam Guide

Pan de sal fills the Old Agat village air early in the morning. For over three decades, Pop’s Bake Shop has been pumping out the best-tasting pan de sal on island. Sanded with bread crumbs, these rolls have a nice round outer shell, encasing a flavorful sweet-n-salty inside.

Cream cheese roll is made like a miniature cinnamon roll, but rolled inside with a sweet spread of buttery cream cheese. The dough tastes creamy and flaky, reminding me of a croissant, which gives the taste buds a luxurious experience. I can understand why one teacher brings a box full of these rolls to school to share with fellow co-workers almost every week now (I’m a teacher). Even if it’s baked in a small village bake shop, this little pastry offers a big feel of southern charm.

Boston cream pie is a classic and long-time favorite pie at local parties. The light and fluffy yellow cake makes this pie different from others. It has a cool vanilla pudding filling, topped with a thick spread of rich chocolate frosting.

Pop’s Bake Shop is located in Agat.
