Mascota Bakery (La)
Founded in 1952, La Mascota Bakery is a slice of Los Angeles' history. The third generation owners serve delicious Mexican delights. Be sure to try out the pan dulce (sweet bread), bobillos (rolls), cookies, cakes and other delicious items. This is an every-morning stop for many locals in the area who come for their daily dose of pastries and cafe con leche. You won't want to miss this Los Angeles landmark; it is a real taste of the Hispanic culture that has thrived at La Mascota Bakery for centuries.
The pan dulce is amazing we drive from the San Fernando Valley for there delicious bread and birote it seems very authentic like a little piece of Mexico especially from Guadalajara. THE BEST PAN DULCE EVER!
I love the flavor of the green chicken tamales. The flavor of the sauce has a little pic to it and the masa is to die for.
They also have wonderful Mexican sweet bread.
I moved to Sacramento 10 years ago haven't been able to get a single tamale as good as the Mascota prepares. My ex husband's family lives there and he'll always bring me a dozen back when he visits.
After reading the reviews from this site I had to go to La Mascota Bakery and check it out for myself. I was pleasantly suprised by the inviting appearance of outside of the building. The taste of their tamales, beans & rice made the trip more than worth it! They went above and beyond my expectations and I will Definitely be going back. I love this place!
We drive about 2 hrs. from San Diego for these delicious tamales, especially for christmas, nothing like emmmmmmm!!! I especially like the Mexican Bread, they have a Great selection and are worth it.. we will keep comming back.
I used to love their bread, however, last time bread was horrible.

What has happened to the quality of La Mascota? For over twenty years, I used to love their bread, tamales, menudo. However, I recently bought bread, and my family & I were so dissapointed. The bread was flat & rock hard. I am pretty sure they use more shortening/lard than usual. The 'Conchas' & other bread was more like a cookie & not bready at all. We all took one bite & threw out the rest of the sweet bread.
We heard La Mascota Bakery from local news, out of curiousity, the very next day we drove from Marina Del Rey to East L.A, waited about one our in line, bought 5 and 1/2 dozens of tamales, and 6 bottles of hot sauce. Every one in our household like them a lot, my sister, my son, daughter and I agreed that these are the best tamales we have ever tasted, but every one wonders if LARD is one of the ingredient in them.
Would like to know about the use of lard if any before we go back and by another 5 and 1/2 dozens.
My husband's Grandmother has been buying tamales from here for decades. They're absolutely tasty! My Holiday parties just cannot meet it's fullest potential unless we have Mascota tamales. Our family seems to be spoiled with the excellent taste of these tamales that no other can compare.
Thank you Mascota Bakery!
We live on the same block as la Mascota. My husband was born there a couple of years before they opened. For Twenty years I have watched them grow and thrive. I have to remember to take a different street home on holidays because their tamales are so popular.
It is our official duty, at family gatherings, to bring the tamales. Now it has been added to my job requirement. It's nice to know I can't miss. They're freway close and open early, so anyone can "swing by" to pick up a real crowd pleaser for work or party.
