For a taste of Cuba in San Diego, head to this casual Ocean Beach bakery. Owner Vivian Hernandez Jackson combines her Cuban heritage, Miami childhood, and London culinary training for breakfast and lunch offerings at her friendly café, an ideal stop for a quick bite before shopping or hitting the beach. Morning specialties like raspberry scones with passion fruit icing, tea cakes, and ham and Spanish cheese quiche can be savored with café con leche, sweet Cuban espresso
with hot milk. For lunch, try the Cubano slow-roasted pork sandwich with plantain chips, followed by a classic flan or slice of key lime pie.
