Little gems of Berkeley: Casa Latina

Casa Latina Berkeley

In a world where a single cookie at your local cafe can cost $2.25, it is delightful to discover a place where the whole family can enjoy the afterschool sugar bomb of their choice for $0.75 each.

Casa Latina, a tiny restaurant on San Pablo Avenue just north of University offers an assortment of Mexican-style baked goods, ie pan dulce, plus regular entrees like tamales, burritos, and quesadillas at affordable prices.

We love to drool over the rainbow sprinkled cookies before making a selection.

What’s this mom’s sugar bomb of choice? Horchata-flavored latte, aka horchalatte.

Casa Latina is the perfect resource to pick up a boxed of baked goods for your office or to show gratitude for a bunch of teachers.
