There are bakery sections in grocery stores here just like in the states, but they aren't self-serve. You get a tray and tongs, select your purchases and bring them to the bakery counter where an employee will bag them and tag them for you. Then, you are ready to checkout. This goes for some of the panaderia stores we have been to as well. On my tray I have a huge frosted cornflake (that's what it tasted like), a custard burger (some pastry creme in a bun with sugar on top), a couple different turnover type things.
