Kape Republik (pronounced ka-peh) is a bakery in Cerritos, CA known for their delicious pastries, their most popular being ube-flavored crinkles. The owner and founder, Karla, did not have a culinary background, and many doubted her ability to own and operate her own bakery. Through hours of practice, baking, and grit though, Karla turned Kape Republik into a respected and beloved establishment where people from all over visit to sample her beloved crinkles. Out of all the places I documented, Kape Republik was my favorite.
