Tres Leches Cake

Hi All:
Anyone know where I can get some great tres leches cake west of the 405? I live in Santa Monica but I'm willing to travel a bit for great cake. I am looking for a place that sells slices..
Thanks in advance...

  1. Border Grill does have one. It's been a long time, but it was not half bad.

    1. Try Angel Bakery on Centinela. Not sure they sell by the slice might be by the cake only.

      1. Well, West of the 405 in the SFV is more than one Vallarta market, which makes the most AMAZING tres LEches. But not really in Santa mOnica, is it?

        Still the Lake Balboa/whatever they call it now Vallarta on Victory has some of the best, and is close to the 405.

        Last I checked, you could buy it in slices or whole.

          agreed, both Vallarta market and Jons market in the valley make excellent tres leches.

            Second this. Unbelievably good tres leches, and CHEAP -- I think it's gone up to $2 for a slice that would feed at least two.

          2. Yes. COPPELIA'S BAKERY on Venice west of Overland Blvd has great ones. By the slice and whole ones (any size).

            1. Don't flog me, but Pavillion's makes a great tres leches cake that they sell by the slice, not sure if at all of them, but I've definitely purchased the slices at Vine/Melrose location... you could call the others. For 2.99, it's obviously incredibly moist and tasty.
