Whether we're craving a simple sweet treat or need to order up a festive special-occasion cake, La Tolteca's our go-to spot. It's a given that we stock up on fresh corn and flour tortillas, of course, but there's so much more to tempt us — it's just impossible to walk past the row of illuminated display cases filled with huge Mexican cookies, pan dulce, empanadas, flan, and churros. Something always stops us in our tracks, despite our best attempts to head to the adjacent counter for a burrito. Tres leches cake, in particular, is one of our biggest weaknesses. Soaked with sweetened milk and layered with gooey fruit filling, it's sponge cake with an irresistibly rich, creamy texture. They sell it by the slice, but what the heck — we like the sheet cake version. When we show up at a party bearing one of those tasty treasures, people treat us like rock stars.

I RECOMMEND LA TOLTECA TO EVERY ONE I KNOW AND TO MY CUSTOMERS HERE AT MY PLACE OF WORK. I WORK AT ESTRELLA GOLF COURS AND I HAVE SENT EVERY ONE FROM HERE TO GO EAT THERE EVEN IF I'M THE COOK HERE. MY HUSBAND JUST LOVES IT. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE IN ARIZONA IT FEELS LIKE MEXICO.
