Good Cuban Food!

Stopped for a light lunch and had some wonderful soup - everything is homemade here. Cuban coffee was good and server was pleasant and efficient. You can always count on a good meal if you stop here. We will return!

Cheap and good. I am particularly fond of Mombo's bakery just to the west on 47th terrace. The best made to order cakes and pastries. Good stuff at a good price.

Whatever I ordered was soaking in vegetable oil and canned tomato paste with no flavor. My husband ordered some kind of breakfast item and was also very disappointed. This must be a very acquired taste for Cubans Poor parking options

El Mambo II Cuban Bakery is located on the back of El Mambo Restaurant. This bakery has a casual diner atmosphere and serves a delicious breakfast or lunch. I generally order breakfast, which consists of three eggs, bountiful and delicious bacon, Cuban bread and Cuban coffee...all for $3.99. I am a bacon lover and must admit, I have a hard... More

While not fancy it's an inexpensive and quick place to have breakfast. Understand the ropa vieja they serve at lunch is excellent.

Great breakfast deals,but geez, the potato substitute piece is awful. Bacon and eggs are great, one cup of coffee. NO DARN REFILLS! Juice is good, Cuban bread is definitely as big PASS! But the bacon is the best!
