Yiya's on 79 Street

Gourmet Cuban bakery on the 79th Street Causeway.

What we had:

We've been here for both breakfast and lunch. The breakfast sandwiches (we had eggs, cheese and ham or bacon on Cuban bread) were great--really fluffy eggs, a good balance of pork and cheese on a fresh, slightly chewy Cuban roll. What's not to like? And at $4 with the best cafe cubano I've had, a great deal.

The Cuban sandwiches are good, too. I still think Latin American Cafe is my favorite cuban, though. Yiya's bread is better quality, the cheese and pork are even, but Latin's ham quality is better.


Cute. Small but comfy and cute, and with Food Network on both times I went.



Overall impressions:

Must go back for more.
