The patties are prodigal here-lightweight flaky pockets stuffed with a loose filling of ground beef that won't gross you out, whether eaten plain or enfolded by coco bread to become a complete meal. In addition to the standard beef and vegetable, this spotless bakery also offers unusual salmon and ackee patties, the latter made from a Jamaican fruit that cooks up like scrambled eggs. Finally, in addition to the usual manioc cake, bread pudding, and hardo bread, there's an exemplary soup of the day-today it was vegetable, a coconut-laced broth jumbled with chayote, carrots, potatoes, and dumplings of various shapes. Yum!
