Lopez Bakery traffics in a wide assortment of pan dulche, as well as basic, good whole wheat and white loaves and various pastries--fruit tarts, cookies, elaborately frosted cakes--some of which are better than others. But what you really should be ordering from this small, family-owned spot are the excellent tamales and empanadas. Don't miss the spinach-cheese empanada, which harbors big, verdant spinach leaves and stringy, mild Oaxacan cheese. The empanadas have flakey crusts and are fried in a cauldron of oil behind the racks of breads. Tamales boast a masa exterior that's fresh, fragrant and crumbly. Our favorite filling is the red chile and cheese tamale, which has a good kick, with bits of tomato and more Oaxacan cheese.
