Easter is days away. Do you have everything you need? What about a some Capirotada , a traditional bread pudding-like pastry filled with toasted bolillo soaked in piloncillo, dried fruits, and cotija cheese for Easter brunch?
La Monarca Bakery in South Pasadena has a wide selection of baked goods. They offer assorted bite-size dessert bars, assorted pan dule and cookie platters, savory croissant squares, vol-au-vent, bolillo crisps, and mini torta bars.
They also serve Mexican molletes, molletes with chorizo, quiche, and cazuelas.
They are located right on Mission, across from the Metro station.
