This is a tiny, quiet spot in the Heights, perfect for consuming worthwhile calories. Dacapo Pastry Cafe's desserts, cakes and cookies are homemade, and it is impossible to pick the best, although the banana split cake and the raspberry cream tres leches probably would win. They also serve sandwiches on homemade breads. The "healthy pollo supreme," lean chicken on peppered herb bread, is superb, as is the "vegetarian special." Salads - all with homemade dressings - soups and fabulous quiches round out the menu.
