Azucar has great coffee and plenty of pastries to match. Find yourself in OB and try something fresh.

My girlfriends and I had a delicious breakfast / sweet tasting at this welcoming pastry shop. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious, and the coffee was great. Every breakfast food that we tried was yummy and our favorite desserts were the coconut flan and the chocolate nibs brownie. Although I don't recommend the cupcakes everything else that we tried was excellent and all at very affordable prices! Please go and try it if you love desserts.

Pros: Affordable, friendly service, great food, walking distance to the beach.

Cons: Not the best neighborhood to hang out in.

I just went to Azucar this weekend for the first time with a friend that is of Cuban descent. Both of us fell in love with this place, the people, and most importantly, the fantastic food (my friend called it the best Cuban pastries he's had outside of Miami). The chef is incredibly talented, the prices are reasonable, and the food and coffee are divine. The sweets are not to sweet and incredibly tasty. Don't miss the scones! And the mojito cookies! And the key lime bars! A great addition to the OB/Pt Loma culinary line up.

Three of us ate our Friday evening meal at newly opened Azucar. Seating is counter style in a corridor. Not very inspiring, but they?ve tried to enhance the aesthetics with interesting photos. The sandwiches are premade and then heated up panning style. The Cubano was the best of the three we tried although the arugula and serano ham are a nice pairing in the Berto.
The Azucar plate of cured meats, cheese, olives, etc. is a nice appetiser plate and definitely sufficient for a few to nibble at. The most pleasant (and surprising) part of this was the guava jelly although the ginger spread ran a close second as a favorite. The crackers this was served with were disappointing, (served to us still in the plastic packaging like saltines), but the rest of the plate was tasty.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, dessert. Had this boxed up to consume at sunset down on the beach. Have to agree with others that the Mojito Cookie is fantastic. Texture is perfect (crunchy shell, chewy inside) and the flavor is very fun and unique. Diablo was also good (make sure to eat the different pieces together if possible). One draw back of coming at the end of the day was the lack of good cupcake options. The one that was available was a bit dry, but the icing was great.

This bakery has not quite opened yet but as I was walking by yesterday, the owners happened to be in and let me take a peek. The decor is so fun and very new and different. They plan on serving cuban coffee which, if you have never had it, you're in for a surprise. They also plan on having fresh sandwiches, cookies and pastries made daily! What a great addition to the O.B. area. And for all you environmentally conscience people out there, you may be pleased to know that all of their cups are made 100% corn composite and their silverware is make from cornstarch. Pretty cool huh! The owners were so friendly and welcoming, just wanted to share my visit with all my fellow San Diegans!
