A touch of Havana in OB

Azucar is a recently opened Cuban bakery in Ocean Beach. From the light and breezy atmosphere to the delectable treats in the display cases, this places fills a much needed niche for high quality sweets in OB.

There is little space to eat-in, but that’s not a problem since a large portion of the business is to-go. Latin jazz plays in the background while you try and decide what to order.

While the menu is primarily pastry, there is a small selection of nice well made sandwiches using typical Cuban and Spanish ingredient, including a version of the famous Cubano sandwich. Sandwiches are heated and pressed in a panini and served with a choice of nearly greaseless plantain chips or tender baby spring mix. Perfect if you want to take it down to the OB pier to eat with a view.

Other Cuban specialties include a pastry of guava and cream cheese, papa relleno (mashed potatoes stuffed with picadillo), pastel de carne and Cuban toast.

The real stars here, though, are the baked goods. Almost everything is in the $1.25 – $2.75 range, which is a very fair price for the size, quality and taste. And so far I haven’t had anything that wasn’t over-the-top delicious.

Thank god I don’t live near Azucar or I would be a regular customer, not to mention the size of a beached whale. Run don’t walk to OB and give this bakery a try, it’s fabuloso. And while you’re there don’t for get to try a Cafe Cubano, an espresso shot with sugar added as it’s brewed. Strong, sweet and satisfying

Dishes I tried:

Ginger Scone

Drop dead delicious scone with an intense ginger flavor. Excellent crumb, very tender, not overly dry. I really liked the portion size, it was just right. Probably one of the best scones I’ve eaten in the last 5 years. It comes with an equally intense ginger spread that is a great enhancement. If ginger is a flavor you crave, this is it.

Mojito Cookie

The menu calls it a “chewy lime cookie with mint”. I just call it terrific. The lime is subtle the mint not overpowering. I love chewy sugar cookies and this is a wonderful variation and at $1.25, it’s a great deal.

Coconut Cupcake

I’m not a huge fan of cupcakes but I am a huge fan of coconut. When it’s paired with cream cheese, what’s not to love! Nice cupcake, good crumb to the cake which wasn’t overly sweet. Frosting and coconut make this cupcake the success that it is. Compared to other cupcakes around the county, these are on the smaller side, but they pack a pretty big punch in the flavor department.

art in my mouth!

I’ve been a few times to this small cafe and have tried something different each time — from the Cuban sandwich (pork on a baguette is simple yet delicious) to the raspberry scones (moist, decadent and full of fruit) to the Pretzel Perfecto (a chocolate and peanut butter invention on pretzel crust — am eating it right now!). The chef’s attention to detail in presentation, texture and taste is wonderful. This is not your usual bakery! There is some magic going on in the back, and the product is anything but run-of-the-mill. I hope more places like this pop up around San Diego.
