About Mecatos Bakery and Cafe
Welcome to Mecatos Lake Nona! Mecato means treat in Colombian, and Mecatos Lake Nona provides real authentic Colombian treats in a welcoming and friendly environment. Our passion for authentic Colombian food comes from our founder Edward Lurduy. In 2015, he researched the very best Colombian recipes before opening up the first store in 2016 in the Orlando, Florida area. Since then, we have opened four additional stores with one here in Lake Nona, and plans are underway to open an additional three stores. It is an exciting time for us as we get to introduce more people to authentic Colombian food and culture.
Mecatos Lake Nona is all about the treats, but some of them are more than just sweet. Mecatos Lake Nona has a diverse selection of savory delicacies that include sandwiches made on homemade arepa and mayorca breads. We offer up beef, chicken, as well as ham and eggs. Mecatos Lake Nona also has empanadas with your choice of beef or chicken. We also sell chorizo and morcilla sausages and American treats with a Colombian twist like our hot dogs and bacon and cheese croissants. Vegetarian options are also available.
Mecatos Lake Nona has a wide assortment of deserts. Starting with our pastries that include quesitos, corazones, and chicharrons. All of our pastries come in an assortment of flavors that include cream cheese, guava, apples, and coconuts. We also have a selection of cookies that include alfajores, linzer tarts, and butter cookies. Can’t eat just one? Depending upon your craving, we have a small pack that has six to eight cookies or our large pack which has twelve to sixteen. Mecatos Lake Nona even serves merengue.

We also prepare three milk cakes and flan. Naturally we have a selection of South American flavors with dulce de leche, miloja, and guava.
Mecatos Lake Nona is also known for its breads. Our most famous bread is our bono bread. It is made out of cheese and few other ingredients. We can serve it plain or with a rich guava filling. Another of our favorites is bunuelo. Bunuelo is our cheese dough that is deep fried giving it a crispy outside with a soft and silken inside. There is also our ringed cheese bread that is made with a few less ingredients which gives it a unique texture. Mecatos Lake Nona also serves other types of bread like roscon or croissant.
Of course our selections would not be complete without our fine coffees. Mecatos Lake Nona gives a great selection of fine coffees, and they come from our own special selection that we sell in 12 and 88 oz bags. Want to have it ground? Just ask! Along with our traditional coffees we have classics like lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos. But we also have hot chocolate as well. We are not exclusive to just coffee.
