I just had to praise their Rosca de Reyes. My family had to celebrate El Dia de los Reyes before Jan. 6 so we special ordered one. We were pleasantly surprised. It's the fanciest rosca i've had all my life in terms of both flavor and looks.

This place is a bakery first, and a tiny restaurant second. For a late night taco, I think it would probably be great - although havent done that. Would not suggest for lunch - its just a little too rough, the food that is. Taco's a real greesy, chalupas were ok. What is excellent is their baked goods... very tasty and authentic. Overall - not a place to eat - but definitely a place to get tortillas, cookies or some other items.
The people working there were horribly rude and the food was lousy. The tortillas were old and cold, and while they were homemade, they werent anything impressive. The chicken was dry and overcooked and way to spicy. The potato and egg was decent though.
La Mexicana Bakery is the only place I know of in Austin that sells delicious Mexican-style tacos at all hours, day and night. The food is hot, fresh, and inexpensive. The tortillas are hand-made, often while you wait. Try any taco with lime and cilantro - yum! In addition, there are two giant bakery cases, brimming with goods. Where else can you get an entire sackful of cookies and pastries for less than four dollars? Located on South First street, this is a great place for sout...view moreh-side residents to grab a bite. (Also good for sopping up the damage you did on Sixth Street.)view less
