    Tompkins Square Bakery, on East 10th between A and B, makes a great tres leches, but you have to order 48 hours in advance. They make it as a big layer cake, dusted with lots of coconut. I thought it was great! They used to make the cakes for La Palpala (sp?) but I'm not sure if they still do....

    Their number is 212-460-9878

      Thanks for the tip. I've decided to venture out and try to make one myself -- looks pretty simple. Famous last words!

        I asked almost exactly the same question about a year ago, so you might want to do a search for the results. I ended up finding one in Queens.

          Thanks, Nosher. I'd say my own creation tasted good, but as far as appearance, any baker with more pride than me would have tossed it!
