I came here on a whim after reading the great reviews. And dare I say it's the best Cuban sandwich I've ever had? The cafe has a nice mom and pop feel and I talked to the owner a bit, who was quite friendly. It's not too far from the beach, so it's a nice place to pop into for... More

It is a very small place and it seemed hat we were he only non-locals but the political discussion (baiting) made me uncomfortable. I'd go again but I'd get it to go

Pretty much authentic Cuban food. Good coffee, food is fresh. They have an excellent Pico de Gallo (Mexican flare that actually goes well and compliments most dishes ). They're portions seem small but will fill you up. This is a true mom and pop place. Wish they wouldn't close so early but the owners deserve a life too. Now, when... More

Great hole in the wall joint, a very friendly and interesting propieter, and a wonderful dish of port, maduros (sweet plantain) black beans and yellow rice, and the breakfast is also very good. I've had the chicken and the cuban sandwich, all excellet.

My husband and I went there for lunch today for the first time after searching for a place to eat on trip advisor. The signs in the windows say it has the best Cuban sandwich, so we decided to try it out. My husband ordered the Cuban sandwich and I ordered the steak sandwich. The service was very quick and...

This is a small local café that sells Cuban and Mexican food. I love Cuban food and couldn't find it anywhere until being told about this place. The food is so good - the Chorizo and Cuban sandwiches are my favorite right now, but haven't tried everything yet! Working on it. The owners are super nice and friendly.
