Originally from the Dominican Republic, Ronaldo Felipe inherited the art of baking from his grandmother, whom he watched prepare pastry delicacies in their kitchen as a child. After moving to New York City and trying several tres leches cakes, he knew he could improve upon them in the footsteps of his grandmother’s secret family recipe.

Ronaldo and his wife Julia opened their first shop,
Tres Leches Café, in East Harlem over a decade ago to much success. They offer a flavorful variety of tres leches cakes as well as other popular Latin desserts like flan. They recently expanded in 2021, opening their second location in the Lower East Side.
