Latin American Bakery & Cafe in West Miami, Florida

Latin American Bakery & Cafe is one of the greatest things to happen to me food wise in the last few years. I love Luis Galindo’s Latin American Restaurant which is right next door but sometimes it’s just filled to capacity and I’ll be forced to order food to go.

Enter the Bakery & Cafe which is not open as late as the resto but has a menu all its own along with sandwiches,¬†fresh baked pastries and desserts. It’s also right near where I live which doesn’t hurt.

I come here for a few particular things. I always order the Cafe con Leche (Espresso with Steamed Milk) with Tostadas (Buttered & Toasted Cuban Bread). It could be for a late-ish dinner at 9:30PM or an afternoon lunch type deal but it always hits the spot.

There’s also no way you can come here and not put down a couple of croquetas, some of the best in the city.

Galindo’s Croqueta Fact: The Croqueta served at Luis Galindo’s Latin American Restaurant and the one served at Latin American Bakery & Cafe are not the same even though they are located right next to each other but they do taste similar. True Story!

No visit here would be complete without a Pan con Tortilla (Omelette Sandwich). You can go the plain egg route but I add the Cuban standard of Ham and Swiss Cheese. It is a great little sandwich with a perfect combination, trust me.

  • This is right by my house too and I’m there all of the time. How on earth do you not mention the desserts!? They are SO good. So far, the absolute best one that is not a traditional Hispanic pastry is the mango mousse. Oh. My. God. I actually don’t like their croquetas much but their papa rellenas and empanadas are delish. Pastelitos de queso are perfect. So far no one has been able to beat La Suiza for croquetas.
