This Latin-influenced bakery sells heaven in a bun—something called a “booty bun,” to be exact. It’s hard to resist this signature offering: brioche-like sweet bread filled with a choice of dulce de leche, Nutella or guava. A savory version subs in a cheese filling, though we prefer its sturdier cousin, the cheese rock, a dense, fist-size ball made with yuca flour. Heartier offerings include beef and chicken empanadas, and delicious little corn cakes that look like flattened arepas. If you want something more familiar, grilled sandwiches—known as “booty-press specials”—offer two sweet fillings (your choice of guava jelly or bananas and fluff) hot-pressed between thick slices of homemade bread.
