Kingston Tropical Bakery


This Jamaican bakery offers light and fluffy coco bread, sticky cinnamon rolls and buttery buns, but it's the beef patties that draw folks from far afield to the North Bronx outpost. Once the only local culinary lifeline to home for Jamaican transplants, Kingston Tropical Bakery now sits at the center of a thriving Jamaican and West Indian food district. After more than 40 years, the spot remains a popular destination for visitors, locals and those returning to the old neighborhood. Expect bustling crowds and occasional lines—especially on weekends—but rest assured the price and taste make these flavors worth the wait.
