Get ready for some Puerto Rican cuisine. Because this place is so popular and their food is so good, you may have to wait a bit, but it’s all worth it. With $5.99 and $6.99 lunch specials with giant portions, you will definitely feel this meal — but more in your waistband, and less in your gut. If you’re more of a breakfast person, make sure you go super early because if you come after 8 am, their to-die-for oatmeal, cream of wheat and cornmeal will already be gone.
But never fear! For those with an all-day sweet tooth, try their “quesitos” (cream cheese stuffed pastries), “pastelilitos de guayaba” (guava-flavored powdered puff pastry” or a “tornillo,” which is a Puerto Rican cannoli but with puff pastry and soft cream filling. And that’s just the tip of the baked goods. They also have flan, donuts, cakes, fritters, and tropical juices to wash it all down with. The most important thing to remember is that you’re going here to treat yourself, so come with an empty stomach and get ready to chow down through their menu — though they have such a selection, you’re going to have to come a few times or order a party platter for a get together to really make a dent in the selection.
