Foursquare Tips

  • If it's lunch time then you can go wrong with a visit to Tropicana. IMO better then Portos. Great sandwiches and dishes and exceptional desserts! All fairly affordable too.
  • Amazing pastries,sandwiches and coffee!
  • Guava and cheese pastry!!!
  • Super tasty and good prices.. try the "guava con quezo" or the chiken or beef empanada if you dont have a sweet tooth.. so Good!
  • Don't go home without pastelitos de guayaba con queso.
  • The pastry cases look good but you have to try the delicious tamales here. Go for my favorite chicken or cinnamon raisen!
  • Come here knowing that you are going to have to wait, but it's worth it. :)
