Where Can I Find a Whole Tres Leches Cake?

  • 8

Preferably, a small one. I know places that sell by the piece or offer huge sheet cakes, but not one suitable, for say, 4-8 people. Any ideas in Manhattan

  1. Try the bakeries around E. 116th St. You can probably order one.

    For example:

    Mexico Lindo Bakery 2267 2nd Ave (116th St)(212) 831-2976
    Valencia Bakery 1869 Lexington Ave (115th St)(212) 991-6400
    La Nueva Bakery 2129 3rd Ave (116th St) (212) 876-2990
    Capri Bakery 186 E. 116th St (212) 410-1876

      Valencia def carries them in any size you want. I've gotten them at the valencia at lex and 105 st. it's pretty good. However you must order it in advance; tres leches is not readily available at the store like some of their other cakes.

    2. I love the cake at Cubana Cafe on Thompson. I would give them a call to see if the size is appropriate. A large piece is only $4 off the menu.
