The confectioner's sugar was laid on thick; the pastry itself was a little heavy, and not flaky. But at the former La Uruguaya y Paraguaya Bakery, the prices were right (cream horn; $1.50), and the ladies behind the counter were always helpful with explanations, even if their English was typically no better than my Spanish. On a recent visit, the bakery had taken a new name (with the old phone number); the pastry display case looked pretty much as I remembered it. Translating for the senior counterwoman, a customer wearing hospital scrubs explained that the bakery had new owners, who planned to expand the menu slightly but otherwise leave things as is.
