2023 Trini Classics

Brown Sugar Bakery & Cafe

Since opening in the late ’90s, Brown Sugar Bakery & Cafe has been an if-you-know-you-know sort of establishment. From its busy corner on South 52nd Street, the counter-service spot offers comforting Caribbean classics like warm, flaky beef patties and smothered oxtail as well as incredible Trinidadian specialties, like weekend-only doubles, that consistently sell out. So get there early.
