Dulceria-La-TurcaDulcería María La Turca
Dulcería María La Turca is one of the capital’s treasures. Its worth does not come from billboards and me- dia coverage, but rather from loyal clients who have frequented the bakery for 78 years. Tucked away in a small storefront on Calle José Reyes, there is no signage, and you would most likely walk right by without trying their mouthwatering desserts. To find original home-baked Dominican sweets, look no further than Dulcería La Turca with an assortment of Dominican candies, empanadas, cakes and natural juices.
Calle José Reyes & Calle Mercedes.
Everyday 8am- 8pm, Phone: 809.221.7341.

The common Dominican lunch is La Bandera Dominicana (The Dominican Flag).
This consists of rice, beans, salad and meat, normally, chicken, beef, fish or pork. La Bandera, as it is commonly referred to, can be found at restaurants and small eateries throughout the city, but Mimosa seems to have an edge. For 31 years, Mimosa has maintained a faithful following in their airy restaurant with high ceilings and a back courtyard. Mimosa’s menu changes daily with a wide variety of Dominican eats along with natural juices that has Dominicans as well as foreigners lining up for lunch.
Arzobispo Nouel #51 btw. Duarte & Hostos.
Mon-Fri 10am-7pm. 809.688.0911.

La-CafeteraLa Cafetera
Located along Calle el Conde, no other Santo Domingo coffee shop is as established as La Cafetera. Opened in 1929, La Cafetera has been a meeting place for locals to discuss sports, politics and everyday life over a cup of Dominican coffee. La Cafetera also has a var- ied list of sandwich melts and natural juices, but coffee is what they do. Order a cappuccino, cafe con leche (cafe latte), or their popular espresso. The Dominican coffee of choice, espressos are enjoyed dark and sweet.
Calle El Conde #253 btw. Duarte & 19 de Marzo.
Everyday 7am-10pm. Phone: 809.682.7114.
