A legitimate yet small Cuban bakery having all of the tempting offerings you would expect to find. The bread is the best in the area

We had lunch at El Recreo, first time there, a really delicious sandwich cubano (assorted meats on a grilled roll), absolutely delicious, and also huge for around $5. Also cortaditos = caffe macchiato. The coffee was also delicious, but note, it is pre-sweetened. if you don't want sugar, say so in advance. There are also many other sandwiches and Cuban... More

Tiny little cafe in a little strip mall. Went in for a sandwich and coffee. The cafe con leche was delicious, got a Cubano sandwich which was OK but very generous, and flan which was a little chewy but good burned sugar sauce. Very inexpensive.

This place is easy for me to get to because it is on my way to work. My experience has nothing to do with the quality of their bakery products. I had the cafe con leche and a pollo empandada. The service and cleanliness were excellent. The cafe con leche was weak and not made fresh. The pollo empanada was... More

I've solicited this bakery several times for catering trays for my parties and they are always great. The pastries here are wonderful, as well. The employees are so sweet and helpful. I have to try more of their menu and Cuban coffee!
