  1. I hate to admit it, but my favorite is the cheap tres leches cake at Vallarta supermarkets. It's basic white cake with frosting, sitting in the milk sauce. Soggy, but very tasty.

      1. I'm not sure if it is best in the city, but if you are on the westside I am a fan of the one at Venice Bakery near Sepulveda. They have single portion sizes so you could try it and see!

        1. I like the one at Coppelia's Bakery on Venice west of Overland. They have slices and whole cakes. You can also order the whole cakes with fresh fruit

          1. Perfectly Sweets in Alhambra has a good version. My girlfriends and I always get the tres leche from Perfectly Sweets. Call ahead because they might be out.
