La Nueva Bakery


Don't confuse this with Cafe La Nueva on the corner of 85th. The best café con leche ($1) in town, as well as a nice selection of pastries and delicious empanadas. When I first moved to New York City and was exploring often, I went to this cafe on many weekends, to enjoy the coffee and practice Spanish. All the ladies are very nice, and never switched to English even when I was tripping over my words back then. There must also be an Argentinean owner and Uruguay influence, because many products from those countries line the shelves, including yerba mate, which can be difficult to find in other boroughs. Well worth the trip!
