Located in Huntington Park, Cruzita doesn’t claim to be some state-of-the-art shop on the cutting edge of coffee roasting. And frankly, it doesn’t need to. Instead, this first-gen, Latinx-owned business focuses on what it knows best: homemade agua frescas, traditional café de olla, and some great breakfast sandwiches that always make us want to sink into a plush chair with The New Yorker’s cartoon section. Their café de olla is some of the best in town and comes full of aromatic cinnamon and sweet piloncillo (unrefined cane sugar with a molasses-like flavor). Everything gently bubbles together in a pot until the brew is a spicy, sweet, and eye-opening caffeine kick that calls for some much-needed breakfast. You can’t go wrong with the cheesy egg and ham sando that comes with soft scrambled eggs, black forest ham, and a slice of American cheese, all on your choice of bread (we like their ciabatta).
