Great breakfast spot. Would not know from the outside that what is inside would be fantastic. Friendly service, good coffee and a great cubano omelet. New breakfast spot for me when I am in town.

We stopped by for lunch and when we asked the server how large the Cuban sandwich was, told that it really "wasn't that big" so both of us ordered food. We were also told to get the breakfast potatoes because the "fruit wasn't so great." Well....the sandwich is big enough to share (and not that great), and the egg omelet... More

Passing through Venice, was lucky enough to eat magnificent roasted cuban pork, preceded by lovely plantain chips with great dips / sauces. Will definitely come back when I am next in the area.

Stopped in for an early lunch with a group of 4. The sandwiches where all very good along with the fries. I cannot remember the exact name of what my wife and I had, but it was basically a grilled chicken sandwich. The flavor was excellent and extremely filling. My brother had a breakfast plate which he said was very... More

Had a great time trying cuban food for the first time. Started with some free plantaine chips with a sauce, pretty good. Hubby & I shared a plate of some kind of pork with sautéed onions on top with amazing garlic mashed potatoes. Sister in law had some coconut rice with shrimp which was very good. Brother in law had... More

After watching the movie "Chef" - I _had_ to try cuban food. That, combined with the opportunistic visit to Marina Del Rey resulted in a lovely dinner. Fried plantains with home made salsa are served while you look over the menu - much more flavorful than chips, and even (I hate to admit it) bread. As I was in a... More
