Pancho Anaya Bakery’s three locations may just be Tulsa’s biggest kept secret. While the family-owned bakery has been popular within Tulsa’s Hispanic community during its 17 years of business, it is still relatively unknown among the metro’s wider population. Pan dulce, or sweet bread, is a staple within Hispanic households and is generally served to guests during holidays as a snack. Pancho Anaya has an incredible array of slightly sweet – but not too sweet – pastries, breads, churros, doughnuts and cookies. Beautifully decorated vanilla or chocolate tres leches cakes and traditional or chocolate flan are also available to satisfy a sweet tooth. Made-from-scratch pastries and bolillo – Mexican baguettes – are delivered twice a day to the 21st Street and Garnett and Lewis and Admiral locations from the main bakery at Fourth Street and Garnett. For those planning a first trip to Pancho Anaya, a few words of advice: When you walk in, help yourself to a tray and a pair of tongs and proceed to the cases, which have descriptions and prices, and heap your tray with all the goodies. Then proceed to the front counter where a cashier will ring you up before you sneak off to your car for a nibble. 11685 E. 21st St., 2420 E. Admiral Blvd., 40 S. Garnett (wholesale location), Tulsa. www.panchoanaya.com.
