There’s plenty to nosh on at this Pilsen bakery: breakfast burritos, sandwiches and fair-trade coffee. But it’s outstanding tres leches that, um, takes the cake. Rick Bayless himself anointed the stuff best around town, but don’t take his word for it—try a slice yourself while using the free Wi-Fi. Can’t make it during the day? The café stays open late on second Fridays for the area’s Second Fridays art walk.
