Great place to enjoy a cafe con leche and an empanada with family and or friends. The empanadas are sooo good. My favorites are the guayaba and the mango. Plain with no cheese. Don’t get me wrong the ones with cheese are really good too...More

Good place to have coffee and pastries, but if you want breakfast you better call ahead, they take a little too long when you order to go.

Stopped in for dinner with high hopes. Food had no flavor what so ever. Adding salt or anything else didn’t help. Perhaps we ordered the wrong items from the menu. Noticed everyone else was having sandwiches, perhaps that would have been better then the entree.

I like Tropicana's pastries, their meat empanadas and their cakes. They have some of the same pastries as the other famous Cuban bakery in Downey but the service is quicker. Their cakes are beautiful and reasonably priced.
