It’s easy to find a quality Mexican bakery in Phoenix, but La Purisima Pasteleria is still worth the drive to Glendale for its fresh baked breads and pastries. There’s usually a line, but that’s ok because there’s too much eye candy to choose from. While you wait your turn, it’s time to make some tough decisions: a highly addictive molasses-flavored cochinitos, the giant pink cookies shaped like pigs, or an apple dipped in salty sweet chocolate chamoy sauce? How about some soft, freshly made tortillas, or a dozen green and red chile tamales made with pork, cheese, roasted red pepper, and corn? The panderia also has a wide selection of pan dulce, plain but delicious sweet buns that are perfect to enjoy with a cup of coffee in the morning. If you’re making the trek across town to see what the buzz is all about at La Purisima Pasteleria, just remember one thing: bring cash. Read our review.
