Looking for Cuban in Pittsburgh

As a South Florida resident looking to transplant to the Pittsburgh I was wondering if there was any chance to find a Cuban bakery in Pittsburgh. I am particularly looking for pastilles.

  1. There are a few places that offer a "Carribean" menu: Kaya, Royal Carribbean, Soho - but none offer anything resembling Miami Cuban. Not only is it unlikely to find a pastille, you won't even find garlic soup. Pittsburgh has some decent food choices, unfortunately Cuban isn't one of them.

    If any of your So. Florida friends want to open a place, rents are fairly affordable and there's a market opportunity!

      Reyna's in the Strip has empanadas and tamales. Kaya has their version of a Cuban sandwich. La Feria has a pretty good ropa vieja sandwich (with plantain chips).
