Do You Know What’s Good at Karla Bakery?

Back when I leeched off my parents, I loved awakening to the smell of pasteles and fresh Cuban bread from Karla Bakery on Sunday mornings. There’s nothing better than tearing through that scotch tape on that little white box of goodies…other than stuffing your face with what’s inside.

So, do you know what’s good at Karla Bakery? A whole bunch of things.

Is there a better way to wash down the goodness than with a cafe con leche (the breakfast drink of champions)? Cafe con leche is like a latte but with some Cuban soul & sass.

Just a heads up, I wouldn’t ask for a latte at any Cuban bakery unless you want to hear, “¿que?” (what?) or you might receive a cocotazo (head smack).

Karla Bakery Must Eats

Karla Bakery has evolved over the last ten years from its original menu of Cuban-centric morning pastries and desserts. You’ll find a Venezuelan cachito and Colombian empanada sitting in the same display case as the selection of different Cuban pasteles and croquetas.

Karla Bakery has seven locations (Doral, Flagami, Fontainebleau, Hialeah, Kendall, West Miami, and Westchester), but only the one on 64th and Flagler is open 24 hours a day.

In 2012, they won the Burger Beast Burgie Award for Best Pasteles.
