There's flan. Then there's Maria Sapia's flan, served in big custardy wedges with exotic flavors like coconut and almond, as well as superlative renditions of the classic vanilla and cheese. Once you eat your fill of it, start exploring the cheesecakes, in flavors like guava, mango, pineapple, and coconut. There are also tortes, cassata cakes, Spanish pastries, gourmet coffees and teas, and an incredible Cuban sandwich, stuffed with roast pork, ham, cheese, and mayo, and pressed between slabs of freshly baked French bread. Master baker Sapia and her welcoming staff serve all these delights in a bright, cheerful space, and all are simply delicious.
