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 restaurant but has a menu all its own along with sandwiches, freshly 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 is 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.
