Best 24-Hour Cheap Eats

La Mexicana Bakery

If Delicious Heaven exists, it's La Mexicana Bakery. One step through the automatic doors reveals rows and rows of sugary goodness behind the glass counter — churros, cookies, cupcakes, pastries, ooohh just try one of each, they're affordable, and you won't be sorry. Best of all, La Mexicana is open 24 hours, so no matter what time you get a craving for their deliciously sopping tres leches cake (in regular and chocolate) or a breakfast taco (which will happen, we guarantee), you'll be able to get some.
