Cuban Sandwiches and Great Pastries

For an authentic Cuban Sandwich or a Media Noche this place is very good. The pastries are also fantastic. Not much seating but the sandwiches are delicious. A great spot for lunch in SIlver Lake

This spot is a bakery cafe with great breakfast croissant sandwiches as well as cakes and various sweets. I had the ham, egg, and cheese croissant sandwich. It was affordable and delicious and the taste brought me back to simple breakfasts I've had in South America.

Great little place. Stopped in for breakfast 3 straight days with my son. I wish we had a convenient local joint like this one. We are there and watched the locals start their day. We had the bacon egg cheese croissants, ham eggs cheese croissants and cheese and egg croissants. All three were great crispy flaky croissants, lots of egg... More

Guava cheese pie is the only thing you should get here, and the only reason to go.
