☞ EAT: Inside Mi Mexico Lindo Bakery

We recently took an old Mexican American former schoolmate into the main bakery in East Harlem's growing Mexican cultural center in and around East 116th Street. Mi Mexico Lindo Bakery has a lot of old world charm with pastries, cream-filled donuts and breads filling up the windows and freshly displayed on baking racks in the small, somewhat shabby store. There's a window with a register in the back end, a beverage refrigerator in the corner and that's pretty much it. Shoppers just pick up a paper bag, some tongs and just pick what they want that's on display. This is probably one our favorite ethnic shops in East Harlem so check it out if you haven't seen it already. Mi Mexico Lindo Bakery is located at 2267 2nd Avenue, between 116th Street & 117th Street. Tel.(212) 996-5223. Take the 6 train to 116th Street to get this location. Photos by Ulysses
