El Coqui Panaderia
When you’re in the mood for delicious pastries or quick takeout, head to I street in Harrowgate to check out El Coqui Panadería (just a couple blocks away from Càphê Roasters). El Coqui’s hot food bar is stocked with tasty, affordable PR staples, including morcilla, pastelón, and plenty of alcapurrias de guineo and yuca. What makes El Coqui so special, though, is the bakery. They’re serving up sweet treats like bizcocho de almendra, creamy quesitos, and more. They also make their own pan sobao, a delightfully soft and slightly sweet typical Puerto Rican bread. This is the primary reason a Tripleta sandwich is a must-have here. Its tri-meat combination includes pan-seared bistec, pernil, and ham. FYI—they’re undergoing renovations so there’s no seating at the moment, so call ahead or order online.
