This new Latino bakery and cafe, with its baseball theme, has fast become a popular choice of neighborhood residents and on-the-way-to-work commuters. Owned and operated by the Borras family, the restaurant combines friendly service and authentic Cuban cuisine that begins in the morning with hot breakfast sandwiches including steak, cheese, ham and bacon. Or you can try a platter of eggs, pancakes, fries and grits accompanied by a cup of delicious cafe con leche. For lunch and dinner, black beans and garbanzo soup join such sandwich options as the Curveball, layered with chicken and Swiss cheese, the Fast Ball featuring seasoned beef and cheese, or the Sinker comprised of pork, ham and cheese. A Grand Slam teams your choice of palomilla steak, chicken or roast pork served with rice or beans. From the bakery come such tempting desserts as pastries filled with guava and cream cheese, bread pudding and flan.
