El Chico Bakery

Along Cherokee Street, where south city crosses the Rio Grande, St. Louisans can enjoy traditional Mexican pastries made right in their own back yard. At El Chico Bakery, guests can peruse the cases of treats, featuring conchas, empanadas, cookies with sprinkles, palmiers and many other items. After decisions have been made, order at the counter and enjoy your selections at one of the tables in the separate dining area or take them to go. El Chico also serves coffee and, on the weekends, tamales.
