Dear PoPville – What smells so damn good around Meridian Pint?

“Dear PoPville,

Any idea where the intoxicating cupcake-like smell comes from, late at night, on 11th, around where Meridian Pint is? Seriously it’s killing me.”

This question comes up every year or so. I was just admiring the smell the other night! It’s the El Latino Bakery at 3314 11th St, NW. And they now have a Website:

“El Latino Bakery has been hand crafting the sweetes breads from central america for over a decade. We are committed to serving great central american breads and pastries, made from scratch, right in our stores, every day.
