New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

El Recreo is a busy little bakery that makes all sorts of Cuban pastries, breads, and sandwiches. The inside is small, with a couple tables and a long but stubby lunch counter against one wall and a series of display cases hugging the small prep area. The ladies behind the counter are quick and friendly, and speak both English and Spanish fluently. They'll wrap up guava-filled pastelitos in sheets of baking paper or fill plastic bags with fried chicharrón for you to take away. But you have to try the Cuban sandwich at El Recreo: Two slices of Cuban bread are pressed flat as a sheet of granite, buttery and crisp. They're stuffed with fresh pulled pork and slices of sweet, pressed ham; a pair best accented by melted cheese, yellow mustard, and sour pickles. At $5 for a foot-long sandwich, its as cheap a lunch as it is filling. Finish it off with a creamy cafe con leche and a sweet pastelito and you're good to go.
