By  | 

That smell of freshly made sweet bread in Mexican bakeries can melt any sweet tooth. With an endless variety of items to choose from, all made fresh daily, it can be hard just to choose one, or two, or three favorites to take home and enjoy with a cup of Joe. It is a traditional place this writer visited on most weekends with her mom acquiring a long-standing adoration for it.

The following Mexican Bakeries are just some to be sure to catch on any road trip through Texas. Some are long-standing family-owned bakeries that bring you plenty of options to pick from making it really hard to walk out with just a sampling of some to take home.

Mi Tierra Cafe & Bakery is a favorite go-to restaurant for any San Antonio visit. Not only do they serve up some of the best dishes, but their bakery is a must for picking up some great pan dulce (Mexican sweet bread). The choices are endless and you will walk away wanting more. Their menu of traditional Mexican pastries is sure to tempt any sweet tooth.

Some of our favorites as shared on their website are their “cuernos de azucar” (sugar horns-sugar-topped croissants). Their “danish de queso” (rich, flaky pastry filled with cheese), and their “campechanas” (flaky, glazed turnovers with a variety of fillings: apple, guava, lemon, pineapple, strawberry or vanilla crème).

2. El Bolillo Bakery – Houston

El Bolillo Bakery is one of this Hill Country writer’s favorite weekend spots to pick up some of the freshest sweet bread in town. El Bolillo not only has a welcoming and warm environment to shop for your favorite Mexican pastries, but you feel as if you have stepped right into a quaint little town of its own.
