Freshly baked, stubby, torpedo-shaped bolillo bread gives this Mexican bakery its name, but that's far from the only draw. Grab a tray and bum-rush the pastry cases, loading up with an assortment of vibrant and often whimsically shaped treats. Don't let the name fool you, though; pan dulce tend to be restrained in sweetness, more bread than sugar and all the better for it. If you really have a sweet tooth, inquire after a slice of tres leches, a traditional Mexican cake soaked in three different kinds of dairy products, sweetened condensed milk chief among them. It sounds unusual to the uninitiated, but is a singular treat.
