Jenn Carr

They have a TON of pastry selections and a wide variety of warm options. The tortas sandwich that I had melted in my mouth. So yummy!!! We will definitely be back. They also open super early so you can get in there before work if you feel like treating your coworkers to yummy snacks.

Paige Crosswhite

I got 2 for my birthday. For myself. I also got a cake from Bonito Michocan. This one was better. Get the Mocha Tres Leches :D

Thomas MacDonald

Phenomenal. They crafted my nephews bday cake from a picture. It came out better than I could hope for. Also tasted amazing.

Very good and well prepared food...quick service with a smile. Even went out of their way to cut my food up so i could eat it due to my recent dental surgery...

dev reddy

One of major claims to fame is the freshness My friend and I were waiting in line looking at the menu board. All of the selections are clearly displayed along with their corresponding prices. . We were both pleased with the portion size and the freshness in taste. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very reasonable for two freshly prepared


The only thing wrong with this place is the location. The food is excellent. Best Gorditas ever. Amazing cakes and pastries (chocolate flann is incredible). Best tamales, and you can get without meat, and a sweet tamale dessert. Yay!

Stephanie Powell

Such great food!

The shop was bustling when we arrived. The parking lot is tight. But, it was worth the drive. My wife and I went for pan dulce, but the store has much more including hot food. We would definitely go back (and might before we leave Kansas City.

Angela Lozano

I love the tamales from here. Staff is friendly as well. My only issue is that the last few times I purchased 2 dozen tamales they shorted me a few, but still very worth it.

Deborah Montgomery

We're SO lucky to live in the Old Northeast, close to Elvira's! The pan dulce selection is wide, and ever-changing; takes me back to Zihuatanejo every time I buy some. We love the tamales too, though a friend's husband thought they could have a little more stuffing. For $1.29 each, however, who's complaining? Also, it presents a great opportunity to practice your Spanish! The folks there are kind and patient to we gringos..gracias a Dios...

Debbee Lotito

Picked up a red velvet cake for my mom's birthday and it was absolutely amazing! Perfectly moist and absolutely beautiful. The cream cheese frosting was a real delight. I wish I lived in KC to frequent this bakery for the cakes AND churros. Yum!

Disappointed. My husband stopped by and bought a dozen tamales. There was hardly any meat and was filled with masa. The masa was the driest we've ever tasted. We ended up throwing them away.

Brandon Sander

Best tamales in town.

Esther estevez

Great selection of cakes and pastries as well as other items. Newly added lunch counter--must try.


Ordered a cake for 4:00pm did not recieve the cake till 5:45pm. The cake I had ordered was nowhere to be found, pretty sure they made the cake last minute when i showed proof that i had ordered and PAYED For it!! When we cut the cake, the cake was nothing like we had ordered no strawberries, no tres leches just plain red colored whipped cream in the middle of the cake maybe to hide the no strawberries that should have been on it? Not worth the $100 we payed for a plain walmart tasting cake. Don't recommend nor trust them for your party cakes. Will not be ordering from them ever again!!!


It's okay this place

Linda Fleischman

Best tamales in Kansas City!

andy pantalones

Amazing food! Bought tamales & sopes and also ordered a cake chef was amazing and helpful!

Shiona Deliozar

The best bakery and cake shop in Kansas City hands down! So affordable and fresh and the best part is that it’s not loaded with sugar. I can actually indulge in cream pastries and tres leche without going into a sugar coma. And I love the awesome staff!

Noah Fleischman

Love this place!

Chi Hoang

It's like a bakery combine with a restaurant inside. Who knew?! I love coming here to tried out something new. I had their tres leche cake and their pastries. I like how their sweets are not to sweet like the average American Bakeries. I decided to try their food last night and had their gorditas, elotes, and their tamales. It's all so delicious and their season of their food was spicy yet not too overpowering. They make their food right there so you know it's very authentic. It's very hard to understand the cook/clerk if you don't speak or know spanish well. So brush up on your Spanish skills a little bit and they will be very much helpful to let get what you want. Definitely will go back.


The tamales are amazing. Best tamales I've had in a restaurant. Service is great also.

Just ordered 2 gorditas from this establishment. One pork and one beef. Pork had potatoes that were damn near RAW! None of them had lettuce tomato or avocado added. When calling to let them know I was disatisfied, the man really didnt know english. I wont be returning.

Gods family

Great cakes and tamales algo they have bags of bread for a 1!!

Casey Foster

The best tres leches cakes I have ever tasted! I have been ordering cakes from them for 6 years now several times a years! Very affordable prices and amazing staff

Ariadne Flores

They serve some of the best tasting "Tres Leches" cake for miles around. If you are considering to order for a big event like a wedding or quince, I recommend you go with one of their template designs over a custom design.

Chuck Harmon

I have never had a bad experience. Staff is always kind. Food is awesome. Plus they don't laugh, just a friendly smile as I practice my language skills.

eliseo villalobos

2 times now that I have ordered cupcakes for my son's birthday to take to his school and both times I go pick them up and no one has a clue about the order I show them the receipt and then they scramble to make them finally get them I ordered Starwars theme and the pictures on them look like they came from a bootleg movie. Never again

Lana Pier

Wanted a different birthday cake not the typical big box grocery store type cake. Found Elvira's online, made the drive. It's in an older part of NE KC Missouri. It was BUSY telling me I was in for a treat. It is a Hispanic business so communication was a teeny bit difficult. But OMG the cake was BEAUTIFUL & EVERYONE raved how delicious it was!!! And I have to talk about the beautiful jello molds there. Works of art. A gentleman behind me assured me ALL the food there is good. He states he goes there for the tamales. I was welcomed & treated so well I highly recommend you going off the beatened path & give Elvira's a try!

Tony Miller

Had a pineapple/ Strawberry Chocolate/ Divine / Birthday Cake. Tony

Stephanie Corona

In the last week, I have had two cakes specially made that turned out amazing. The staff were very understanding and welcoming to the ideas I had for the cakes. 10/10 would recommend to come here for a tres leches cake.

Jose Olivares

I like this store has good bakery and good except for the corn is cold and no hot pepper powder

Jess Ray

Very cute bakery with many choices! I do not speak Spanish so the staff did have to be a bit more patient with me. But, the quality is excellent for the price! Really great selection of breads/pastries and very beautiful specialty cakes are available. I will definitely consider them for my next big event instead of a more commercial bakery. Worth driving to the East side, I will definitely be back!

Yvette Marchetti

Awe-mazing cakes! Everything here is top notch!

Andrew Snow

The very best burritos in kansas city. For sure.

Donald Donaldson

Friday, 11:37 AM, I arrive at Elvira's and order 8 tamales. "Tamales won't be ready for 30 more minutes."

Nene Hollinger

I will never go back to this place, they ruined my daughter's birthday with a horrible cake that they assured me they could do with ease. Ordered a tre leches cake it was completely soggy on one side, the design on top was horrible, the letters were lopsided and crooked, refused to give me my money back. The guy Efrain is totally the reason I'll never go back here.

L.S. Elston

Delicious pastries, cakes, lunch, and dinner. Friendly staff. What more can you want!

Jes Caylor

I bought an awesome birthday cake for my friend here, and awesome donuts for myself. Can't wait to try the tortas

Keith Ring

Wife loves to buy her Spanish treats for her classroom from here. Friendly staff and tasty treats.

Kayleah Tye

One of the worst cakes I have EVER seen! For the price we paid for our cake we expected something very close to the photo we showed of our vision. When arrived the icing was already cracked. The cake was tilting as they were setting it up. They arrived, set up, got their money, and quickly left before we were able to check over the cake. I gave them over 4 dozen flowers - 3 dozen roses, a dozen tulips, and small flowers to be used on my cake and they used 2 roses, tulips, and a few smaller flowers. The cake tasted good but at a wedding the look of the cake is the main priority and this was a horrendous looking cake. Would NEVER recommend using Elviras Cakes for any occasion! If I could give negatives I would!

Martin Andrade

Best 3 Leches Cakes I have tried so far, we always come here

Derek Cloughley

Sooooo goooood I eat the burritos any of them can't lose and for price well worth it 1 will fill you up

Food InMyBelly

Delicious! Great customer service. Amazing selection. The employees were so sweet to me and helped me learn the Spanish names for certain things I’ve ordered. You can sit inside and enjoy coffee and food, top it off with a yummy desert. Great local bakery!❤️

Theresa Polio

Good tamales and cake.. the other food is not that great . The staff are unfriendly.

Caitlin Kresh

I really should have paid attention to the tres leche cake reviews. We ordered one and drove 40 mins across the city to pick it up. It was ready on time and looked nice, but it was another story when we actually attempted to eat it. The cake was insanely dry, had zero flavor, and even seemed stale, which was very surprising since this cake was supposed to be freshly made. It was disgusting and a complete let down. We had great expectations and they were no where near met. I can honestly say this was the worst cake I have ever attempted to eat in my life. Nobody finished their cake. After a few bites everyone threw their slice away. I will never spend another dollar here and there's absolutely no way I could ever recommend this place to anyone. I can only assume the 4 and 5 star reviews are from supportive family members and friends, not actual unrelated paying customers.

Joseph Lopez

Great selection of cakes pinatas along with food selections, tamales, burritos and tacos. They also do ice cream, coffee and Mexican bread. Parking can be a little tricky on busy days. Best time to go is during the weekdays. They have large pinatas that are $35 for the big ones and $18 for smaller one's and plenty to choose from. Definitely is a great place to grab a bite to eat or do a little bit of birthday shopping for cakes pinatas. They do have tables and chairs to dine in.

Delfenia Hamilton

Great food

Samuel Orozco

Great Mexican bakery. Freshly made every morning til noon. It also has a wide selections of cakes to choose from or they can make you one for any occasion. Surprisingly the ice cream parlor offers a lot American and Mexican flavors.

Great Mexican bakery but needs signs on product with prices

Aaron Trujillo

Yummy and delicious tamales and sweet bread

Samantha Walling

Very A/C. I am white and no one could speak English and while I was in the middle of being helped I was blown off for a Hispanic lady and her order. It made me very uncomfortable. My husband and daughter got ice cream that was melted. I ordered two tamales that were ice cold and they had no sauce. The establishment was very dirty and I won't go back.

Rosalio Calderon

Excellent service

Carlos Cifuentes

Great food and Sweet Bread with cofee!
