Cafe Nena’i is a small, mother-and-daughter owned Latin American bakery near Riverside and Montopolis where nothing on the menu is over $5. We’re fans of the pastries like the alfajor (a cookie sandwich with dulce de leche and coconut flakes) and the pastafrola (guava tart), and we could eat their sandwich mixto - a ham and cheese croissant melt - every day and never complain. Their Cuban-inspired coffee menu also has things like cafecitos and cortaditos. And if you’re picking up lunch, make sure to grab a couple of empanadas, though we can’t guarantee they’ll survive the car ride home.
