FYI… La Merienda comes from the Latin word “merenda” which refers to something that is deserved or merited. Other words sharing the same root with merienda are emeritus, meritocracy, merited (merecer in spanish). Therefore, since you’ve been working hard, you should take a well-deserved break in the middle of your day and treat yourself, thus La Merienda.
We hope to re-institute this wonderful feature of our cultura. We’ll see you in the mid-afternoon to share love and bread.
Welcome to Bread Cultura.
