Solid standby for Latin food and baked goods. Sometimes there's a long line, because the food is delicious. Everything I've eaten there has been satisfying.
Took a chance ordering Enchiladas con Mole at a bakery, but I was rewarded. Plate served up heavy with rich, deeply-flavored mole. Delicious and ample for $7. Plus, the staff seems to really enjoy themselves - I bet the cakes are great too.
MÉXICO 🇲🇽 Eat the World NYC review: Just above the entrance to the 36th Street express station on 4th Avenue, Ines Bakery always has a lot of foot traffic in front and shows itself off only as a place to buy large designer cakes. Examples in the window are for weddings, quinceañeras, and birthdays.Without exception, I have overheard orders for cakes or cupcakes being places and/or finished orders being picked up each time I have eaten here. The bakery is famous in the area and folks from every background use them for their parties. I have heard a man place an order for a bar mitzvah, and last time in a Russian woman was ordering cupcakes for a party the next day. ° That being said, first and foremost in my mind are the great breakfasts at great prices available here. Depending on who is operating the cash register a plate of chilaquiles loaded with meat runs $7 or $8. In addition a nice portion of beans will grace the plate in a puddle of either red or green salsa before being topped with crumbled cheese and sour cream.
Eater praised this place but I didn't think it stood out. Lettuce was not necessary
Good food 24 hours a day. And you can buy a cake here. It's a true NYC institution. Glad it's here and hope it stays for a long time. Friendly folk all around.
