Master Baker

Pay a morning visit to Mexico with a step into our South Park pastry kitchen. We’re Pasteleria Y Panaderia La Ideal, a family owned and operated Mexican bakery featuring fresh breads, cakes, and treats. Enjoy the delicate textures of pan dulce (sweet bread), empanadas, bolillos, conchas, cuernitos, banderillas, churros, donas de chocolate, and flan. Don’t know where to start? Let us help you pick something. Then come back tomorrow – we bake everything fresh daily.

Plan your celebrations with us for custom cakes and catering. We keep traditions alive with specialties like Pan de Muerto (Day of the Dead bread) in November, and Rosca de Reyes (Kings’ Ring cake) in January. Year-round favorites include rich Pastel Tres Leches (three milks cake) and colorful gelatinas. Good prices and fresh selections every day.

Just For Fun!
