Cinthia’s Bakery and Cafe, 5860 Columbia Pike, Falls Church, VA (just west/southwest of Bailey’s Crossroads Shopping Center (with Full Kee and Trader Joe’s)), 703-998-1771, opens at 9 am, closed Tuesdays (Metro Trip Planner – opens in new window)
A charming bakery and Bolivian eatery with consistently good soups and meat dishes. On weekends it is packed by 11:30 am, excellent crowd. The Bolivian offerings in this area have seen an upgrade lately, but this is probably the single best place right now. No surprises, just very fresh and consistent on execution. If you don’t know Bolivian cuisine, trying it is a must. It also is the best-smelling of all the Bolivian bakeries. Definitely recommended.
