I paid a visit to this shop during July for some supplies I needed. I went back in October to have a reading done. I don't do many reviews on restaurants or shops however I feel the need to review La Caridad. This shop is in the perfect location in San Antonio. It is set up in a boutique area so the shop itself is set up as a boutique something I loved the first time I visited. Monica who runs the front of the store is so friendly and helpful you feel no uncomfortness or pressure while here. I had my reading done by their shops Babalawo. Now being familiar with the religion I expected my reading to be done by a Santero/a or a Spiritualist never in a million years did I think I would get a reading from a Babalawo. It was a truly remarkable experience. I have visited a few shops in San Antonio for supply but none have made me feel at home or as comfortable as La Caridad.
I visited this place, and about 4 other pinata stores on the same day. I was in search for a very special custom pinata. Cuevas had quality, handmade pinatas that were superior, compared to the other stores. The staff was very friendly and attentive, considering how busy they were. I also appreciated that they had a wide variety of Mexican candies and favors; I was surprised to see that they also sell cakes?! Truly one stop; I wish I had gone there first!
This is my second time writing a review for this place. I just picked up my Rapunzel pinata. Karla is one of the nicest lasts I've met. Great customer service. The place looks small from the outside but once you step in, you see 2 big rooms filled with pinatas. The pinatas actually look like the characters. Which now a days is hard to find. I loved it there and I'm definitely going back for any pinata I need.
