Viera’s is well-known for its excellent fresh churros as well as many flavors of empanadas, including Bavarian cream, pineapple, apple, sweet potato, strawberry, guyaba and coconut. Traditional pan dulce, including Roscas de Reyes, a cake pastry traditionally eaten to celebrate Epiphany, and Pan de Muerto, traditionally baked for Dia de los Muertos, are a specialty.

The bakery opens at 4 a.m. until 11 p.m. at the Lewis Street location and 5 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Burden Boulevard.

“We start early and our ovens run twenty-four hours a day,” says Marisa Viera, manager of Viera’s Bakery.
