About Comadre

In Spanish, a child's father and godfather are, to each other, compadres—that is, ‘co-fathers.’ Compadre is also a traditional term of reverence and friendship for a man.

The equivalent feminine term in Spanish is Comadre.



Comadre is your friend. Comadre is your homegirl. Comadre looks out for you. We believe that pan is life, gluten is great, and the Latinx diaspora community deserves nourishing food.

Our mission is to create high-quality breads and pastries, grounded in great technique, that use responsibly-sourced ingredients to truly sustain our community. We use local whole grain, stone-milled flours and natural fermentation whenever possible, and our ingredients are whole, local, flavorful, and authentic.

Comadre Panadería is inspired by founder Mariela Camacho’s experience of growing up Xicana in America. Our work is rooted in social and environmental stewardship and mentorship of women and people of color. Our drinks are by Dorothea Coffee, a Seattle micro-roastery that we think is great.

Comadre's first pop-up took place in October 2017 at Amandine Bakeshop in Seattle, WA to raise funds for the victims of natural disaster in Puerto Rico, Oaxaca, and Mexico City. Follow us on Instagram to stay up to date on where we’re popping up next!
