If you are staying in Isla Verde and you want a real Spanish bakery, your best bet is to hoof it over the highway bridge to Panadería España, which makes strong coffee, a delicious Cubano sandwich (roast pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard), and specialties like caldo gallego soup, seafood paella, and braised chorizo. There’s also fresh orange juice and baked delights such as lighter than air pan de aqua (the Caribbean version of the baguette), oversized cookies, and delicious cheese pastries simply called quesitos. A simple dining area fronts the deli and bakery counters and small kitchen.
