Bakery

“Top notch! Very good pastries, sandwiches, and drinks. They have high quality products. Highly recommended to go here. They will get you hooked. There is both take out and eat in options. Amazing bread, everything is delicious in this restaurant. Long line but so worth the wait. Get the guava roll. Rosetta's pastries are light and flakey and moist and rich where they should be. The selection is an effective take on French classics with a local twist. Probably the best bakery in town.”

Here, in a small, dark, and unassuming dining room decorated with white tablecloths and stark white tableware, it's Olvera and head chef Erick Guerrero's culinary experiments that take center stage: There might be an egg hidden in a puffed tortilla, or a taco may come in liquid form.
