It’s a beloved family-owned dessert hot spot near Fruitvale Station. When we say hot spot, we mean it: mango-chili paste and other Mexican influences make their spicy way into some of Nieves Cinco de Mayo’s classic cold sweets (try the mangonada). Hit up the Fruitvale Public Market for this small operation with a big following.
