Kape’t Torta is our favorite Filipino bakery in Elmhurst, and the small counter-service cafe is the ideal place to pick up a box of pastries for any occasion. They specialize in Filipino tortas, which are mini-muffins that work well for breakfast or dessert, and they have a few different kinds. Our favorite is the torta cebuana which is buttery, sweet, and tastes like someone threw a little coconut in the batter. You also want the cheese ensaymada (soft dinner roll topped with shredded cheese) and a few orders of ube pandesal stuffed with cheese. And if you’re in need of a pick-me-up, try a cup of extra-strong kapeng barako - a dark roast Filipino coffee.
