The Baker’s Son
The Filipino bakery The Baker’s Son originated in Jacksonville, FL and the first Houston location is right here in the Medical Center. The fresh baked goods here are mostly sold in multiples, but there are some individual treats for sale at the counter. After shopping around and filling your basket with fresh pandesal, ensaymadas topped with parmesan cheese, and ube-flavored everything, grab a passion fruit calamansi for a citrusy refreshment loaded with fresh fruit and herbs. The Baker’s Son is open daily until 8pm, and it’s perfect for healthcare workers (or anyone, really) in the mood for a sweet treat after the sun sets. There aren’t any seats in this action-packed bakery, but biting into a pan de dulce filled with ube tastes delicious from the driver’s seat.
