This Boyle Heights bakery's been whipping up the same lunch staples and sweet treats since it opened its little corner operation back in 1952. If you don't get there by the time the day's fresh-baked breads and pastries run out in the afternoon, it's no big deal. There'll always be a few basic sandwiches made from the leftover rolls, a pile of hot beef, chicken, or pork tamales, and a steaming vat of spicy menudo stew just waiting to be devoured instead.
