This North Austin strip-mall bakery and cafe has everything from tacos to tortas to pan dulce, all of which fans swear are the most authentic and addictive Mexican treats around. On the right side of the space, you'll want to order some horchata to sip as you nosh on the classic taco de chile relleno, a large blue corn tortilla topped with yellow rice and a breaded and fried cheese-stuffed chile (this one isn't easy to come by in Texas). Once you're finished, head to the left side, where you can choose from dozens of cookies and cakes in a rainbow of colors and flavors.
