Best Mexican pastries around! Texas Star Bakery has been around for decades and I've loved their pastries since I was a kid. One of Galveston's gems. Try everything especially the empanada's, lemon tarts, sugar cookies, short bread cookies.

For years, my aunt used to bring us tamales every time she came to visit. It was a tradition. And every time we went to Galveston we get pastries to eat while in Galveston and would bring tamales home for ourselves, friends and family. I...More
