Other sweet treats include candy and Rice Krispies bars. Frosted Mexican cookies are among the pastries and baked goods (69 cents-$1.99). Another upcoming addition will be ice cream, de la Cruz says.

The Sugar Shack offers a couple of salads and three sandwiches ($2.99-$3.50, made next door at De la Cruz Bistro) with more on the way.
