Sweet! Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria serves up Cuban desserts

I love chocolate chip cookies and Rice Krispies treats, but it's always a letdown when I see them wrapped in Saran by the register at fast-casual spots. Why not offer desserts more in sync with the menu? That's why I appreciated the globally-inspired desserts at the Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria in CitySet, which I review this week: They reflect Cuba as much as the colorful photo of Havana plastered on the wall.

My favorite treat, however, was the pastelito, a turnover filled with a blend of guava and cream cheese on flaky housemade pastry.

And if these sound too sweet, you can always order a café con leche, which is sugary enough to count as dessert.
