Fodor’s Expert Review
For a taste of Cuba in San Diego, head to this colorful Ocean Beach bakery where owner Vivian Hernandez Jackson combines her Cuban heritage, Miami childhood, and London culinary training in breakfast and lunch offerings. This friendly café is an ideal stop for a quick bite before shopping or hitting the beach. Morning specialties like raspberry scones with passion fruit icing, a traditional guava and cheese puff pastry, and ham and spinach quiche can be savored with café con leche, a sweet Cuban espresso with hot milk. For lunch, try the Cubano slow-roasted pork sandwich with plantain chips, followed by a classic flan or the mini mango cheesecake.
