Lola’s Bake Shop is located at 1335 Palm Blvd. in wonderful Brownsville, Texas and is nestled in the “Corner of Peace” also known as “El Rincon de la Paz.” Lola Brown learned her craft at the legendary Vannie Tilden in Harlingen, Texas where she gained over three decades of experience in creating wonderful pastries. Lola returned as Master Baker at the Bake shop all thanks to Antonio Martinez a local attorney and property developer who is helping breathe new life into and old part of town. Lola became available once her longtime employer closed their doors in 2003. A petite woman with a sunny disposition jumped at the chance to take part in this wonderful experience. Lola was extremely honored and excited to have the establishment be built around her. Sadly, on May 31, 2010 we lost our dear Lola who lost her battle with cancer but, her legend of wonderful and delicious pastries lives on. Tony along with Rene Ramirez have continued her legacy and are baking those delicacies we all love to indulge.
Come by and visit us at Lola’s Bake Shop, where you are treated like family and will be taken back in time. Our wonderful staff is available Monday through Saturday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
