Casa Latina Bakery

“Pretty unassuming place that doubles as a bakery. They make their own tortillas, have a long breakfast menu and don’t shy on the spice. Order the tacos dorados, they grill mold 2 homemade tortillas together like a Venn diagram so that they make one long taco shell, it reminds of the long forgotten Taco Bell Grande.” — FAN
