1. La Chicanita Bakery

La Chicanita Bakery is located approximately one mile from The Woodlands of Crest Hill. Their baked goods will leave your mouth watering, and you’ll be sure to want seconds, if not thirds. The bakery has been around since the late 1980s and stays true to the owner’s Mexican heritage. While the flan and cheesecake are phenomenal, the tres leches mocha cake is a customer favorite.
