When Diane and Hector Vega met and got married, they didn't just combine their lives. After spurning corporate jobs, they combined their passion for bringing the cuisines from their native Colombia and Puerto Rico to their neighbors. The result was Dulce Cafe Bakery, which specializes in the breads, pastries, and sandwiches of Latin America. Their signature items are their corn cake arepas and their dulce sweet breads, both of which can be enhanced with a gooey layer of cheese, much like a resume sent to a dairy farmer. During the lunch hour, they also make heartier fare, such as their ham and cheese empanadas and sandwiches. Their baking prowess isn't just for breads and handheld lunches, however. They also create desserts such as cake, coconut flan, and rice pudding.
