3838 Independence Avenue | 816-231-3524

Among the several Mexican bakeries along Independence Avenue, in the historic Northeast, Elvira's (also known simply as "Elvira's Cakes") has been a fixture for years in the neighborhood east of Benton Boulevard. Best known for its selection of iced layer cakes, Elvira's keeps a refrigerated case almost always full of rainbow-colored flan custards (plum, banana, rum with walnuts), and fresh yellow mangos carved into floral shapes and sold on a wooden skewer, and pretty fruit tarts. A refrigerator is heaped with frozen paletas, and a wall of illuminated pastry cases is stacked with trays of sugared doughnuts, horn-shaped pastries called cuernos, fruit- and cheese-filled empañadas, and flaky croissants. The nonedible wares include festive paper piñatas, locally made salsas — and rosaries, should one care to say a prayer to Saint Honore, the patron saint of bakers.
