Panaderia Dulceria San Jose (Havana) on Calle Obispo

               For those you who have a sweet tooth and are in the Old Havana area of the city, you must stop in and visit this Pastry and Bread shop. I personally try to stay away from sweets but my girlfriend (who is Cuban) absolutely loves the stuff. Every time we walk by this place on Calle Obispo, we have to stop so she can grab a pastry. The place is always full so besides that and the fact that this is one of the few places she stops at, I've determined this is the spot for a good Pastry (or maybe bread). They now have tables and chairs out on the pedestrian only street . I'm not sure if they were always there but they were there this past August. The prices are very cheap if you compare them to Canada. I'm sure that whatever pastry they try to replicate from whatever part of the world is better from the country of origin but the value is great and it's not a bad deal. As I said, the place is always busy. Give it a try and tell me what you think. For those of you who don't know, Calle Obispo is a Pedestrian only street that runs from the Plaza de Armas to about Parque Central near the Floridita bar and restaurant where Hemingway used to hang out. The hours on the store window show that it's open from 7am-7pm and 8pm-12 midnight.
