We can now add Gually’s Bakery & Restaurant (6201 Denison Ave., 216-862-1441) to the growing selection of quick-serve Puerto Rican delis and bakeries in Cleveland's Tremont, Clark Fulton and Stockyards neighborhoods. Gually's joins relative newcomers like Panaderia Las Villas & Deli (3216 W. 41 St., 216-651-9610), Rincon Criollo Take 2 (7403 Denison Ave., 216-331-4525) and Caribe Bake Shop (2906 Fulton Rd., 216-281-8194), which relocated two years back into a new building on the same property.
Like the others, Gually’s Bakery offers walk-up counter service and a small dining room in which to sit and eat. This deli offers a combination of prepared foods, foods cooked to order, pastries and coffee. More than a dozen sandwiches, including hot-pressed Cubanos and Tripletas, join hearty combination plates that include meat, rice and beans. Also on the menu are an assortment of stuffed mofongos and trifongos, a version that adds cassava and ripe plantain to the usual mash of green plantains.
Both sweet and savory pastries, such as flaky meat-filled empanadas,
alcapurrias and rellenos, as well as authentic Puerto Rican cakes and breads, also are available.
Diners pay and wait until their name is called to retrieve their order from the counter.
Gually’s is open Monday through Saturday 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
