Yes, finally real Mexican food has crossed the borders to New York City and we need not make do with imitation Tex-Mex. Yet, better to arrive sooner rather than later to this family-run Mexican bakery in the heart of Bedford-Stuyvesant or Bed-Stuy as locals call it, one of the most gentrified corners of Brooklyn. Just picture the vast variety of handmade, hand-formed sweet breads; grab a tray and a set of tongs and choose a few samples among the breads, cheese, jarritos, rice pudding, tres leches, and conchas, those cookie-topped breads often served warm or chinos, fluted little cakes. To complement it all, the drip coffee is strong and rich. Guadalupana delivers its pastries from Coney Island to the Bronx, but best to taste their products at the source, warm from the oven.
