2. Fat Cupcake
They are no ordinary bakery! Fat Cupcake is out here running some serious cupcake GAME. From vegan to wheat-free options, Fat Cupcake has cakes and cupcakes for virtually every occasion. What's that? You just got broken up with? No problem! FC literally has a whole friggin' cake for that too! Made up of four types of chocolate, The Breakup, will have you forgetting how you ended up eating cake in the bathtub with a bottle of wine at hand!
3. La Perlita
Alright, prepare yourself. Not only does La Perlita serve ethically sourced coffee beans (roasted according to bean type), but they also have the best tortas in town- vegans, stand back. Their "Torta de pancita" wouldn't be justified by calling it a "pork belly sandwich", so if you can't pronounce it, then you'll have to go try one to really understand it's the greatness; the power.
Proud to serve the tastes of their culture, La Perlita has so much to offer! Coffee, Tortas, and Conchas- this first-gen Mexican-American owned shop is not holding back!
4. La Reinita
Previously Wyld Bread, La Reinita is a panaderia urbana or urban bakery. Journey deeper into your roots through every bite of La Reinita's most delicious bread. To create a sense of home, or share the feeling with others who have yet to experience the comforting foods of Mexican and Colombian heritage, this urban bakery understands the value of sharing tasty, memorable foods.
Due to current circumstances, La Reinita is offering deliveries as of October 9th! Get your orders... ordered!
