Bakery La Mejor, Union City

I went to Bakery La Mejor in Union City the other day. It's a small Mexican bakery that sells very tasty sweets.

I tried the tres leche cake, a slice is around $1-$2. It's a very rich, moist yellow cake w/ a white frosting. Good.

Also got a coconut/cream pastry. Around $1-$2 a slice.
Very tasty. A favorite.

Cookies I tried:
Mexican wedding cookie-it's pretty big round cookie, wish it was smaller (more manageable to eat), lots of powder sugar, crunchy. ok. 50cents.

sprinkled sugar cookie-love the crunchy candy bits, pretty huge too. ok.

Strawberry filled cookie. Two crunchy butter cookies filled w/ a smear of chewy strawberry jam. My favorite. 50cents.

Very good prices and tasty. I spent $4 for all those items.
