La Gran Via Bakery is a night owl's best friend, serving up Cuban coffee and cake 24-7.
“People come at all hours from very far away for the coffee,”said Royd Leyva, 29, a third-generation owner of the bakery at 4516 Fifth Ave. with sister Betsy, 33.
The siblings' parents and grandparents opened the Sunset Park shop in 1978.
The Sunset Park Fifth Avenue BID area has improved exponentially since then.
“When I was growing up, it was bad here,” Royd said.
