La Gloria Bakery – Detroit Mexican Town

La Gloria Bakery

After our dinner at Los Galanes, we walked across the street to La Gloria Bakery. It’s the perfect way to end any dinner in Mexican Town.

It’s a quaint little shop with freshly made Mexican and Italian pastries that are displayed in wood and glass cabinetry. It has a HUGE selection (as you will see from the gazillion photos I took), and the prices are unbelievable. If you walk in with $2, you can usually walk out with at least 3 desserts!

Do you remember my disdain with this place? You will find none of that here!

My hubby loves the coconutty strawberry cake thingies below. And guess what? It’s on fifty cents a piece, and its huge! Yeh, I said 50 cents. You can’t even buy a stick of gum for 0.50 dollars, let alone a yummy coconuty thingie. Actually you could buy a stick of gum. But only one stick.

I had a churro, fitting for Mexican Town in Detroit I know. It was the end of the day, so it wasn’t as fresh, (I know I have to complain about something), so I wasn’t 100% sold on it like other things I tried.

My hubbys strawberry coconutty thingie was outta this world. Try it.

Actually, take 1 dollar (forget McDonald’s dollar menu), yes, only ONE dollar, buy two of them, and give one to someone you love. Or eat both. I won’t tell.

    I'm going there tomorrow and can't wait. I love those bright pink round cookies–don't know what they're called either, but I had them in a panderia in Chicago. :)
