Cafe Tropical (silver lake)

By in 05: Silver Lake + Echo Park, Favorite Food Entries

Jon took me to this cozy and cute cuban pastery and coffeehouse at Silver lake. I love the paper mache balloon lamp shapes. Very good and strong cafe con leche! The Cuban Sandwich is pretty good and filling, the ham was a little too salty though. I want to try their cuban steak sandwich next time. The Guava cream cheese tart is delicious! Very rich and the crust is cripsy and fresh. I’m always a big fan of Cuban pasteries but it’s a pity they don’t have cakes like Porto’s. Still it’s nice to know another cuban bakery option that’s much closer and more hang-out-friendly.

    Would be more balanced and less “dry” if the sandwich comes with soup and salad~
