Fill the world with better cake

"Best cake ever!!!! I initially ordered a three tier cake, but after tasting the samples, I upgraded to a four tier cake so that I would have left overs after the wedding. However, the cake was such a hit at the wedding that there were no left overs. Thank goodness for the one-year anniversary tradition of saving the top cake tier!. The price on the cake was reasonable and worth every penny."

“We walk into this place called Rustika, immediately I love the place. We walk up to the counter and my wife nudges me and points to the empanada section behind the glass. Holy crap they have chicken mole empanadas. Yes folks that’s right, chicken mole empanadas!!!! As elusive and sought after as the Yeti or Big Foot. I go nuts, like some 9 year old at Christmas unwrapping the Star Wars toy they have always wanted… 

I may move close to Joel's place just to be near this Rustika place, so freaking good.”

Voted Best Cake in Houston - Everyone

"Pastry chef Francis Reznick creates beautiful cakes every day at Rustika Cafe & Bakery for weddings, birthdays, holidays and every other type of celebration. But it's what's on the inside that counts, and Rustika's cakes are not only gorgeous, but delicious. Rustika offers dozens of flavor combinations, which makes choices difficult. No matter which one you pick, be it the sweet and smooth white chocolate raspberry filling between layers of delicate and crumbly white cake, or a rich chocolate cake with chocolate dulce de leche filling and chocolate buttercream icing (a chocolate lover's dream), you won't be able to put your fork down."

Molly Dunn, Editor - Houston Press

"The couple hail from Mexico City, and their products pay tribute to their heritage, in addition to the cooking styles of South American and European countries.... Whatever they make, an adherence to quality, no matter the cost, sets Rustika apart."
