  1. la flor bakery in Port Chester. You can buy by the slice or the whole thing. Pretty good too.

    1. They have it by the slice at Little Mexican Cafe too, in New Rochelle. Yum.

      1. Matthews bakery in Stamford on West Broad St.

        1. I get them at La PiƱata Bakery in Yonkers; 118 New Main St. I think they're quite good but I haven't tried that many so I'm no expert.

          1. Basso Cafe in Norwalk has a delicious, authentic Tres Leches Cake for dessert. I don't know if they'd sell a whole cake, but it might be worth the try.

              jfood just saw this place for the first time driving home last night. Then he sees two posts on it.

              What is it if you do not mind him asking.

                jfood,

                Basso is a little place, as you know, in a spot that hasn't done well in the past. Hopefully, they'll make it. They're lunches are quite good (you can order from the dinner menu at lunch too). The chef is Italian and Venezuelan and is cooking from his background. I think his flavorings are very good--usually more subtle, but tasty.

                Renato, the chef, I think used to work at Habana. He's very eager to learn and is accommodating. He said his Thurs. Fri. and Sat. nights are very busy, but lunches are very quiet.

                It might help him to have a liquor license, although that doesn't stop Valencia around the corner. I think the difference though is that Basso is going for a little more refined, which means serving wine rather than having customers bring it. (IMHO)

                Hope that helps! Try it out and let us know what you think!
