A gotta have breakfast

The price is fair, the breakfast was outstanding, gotta try it. Will eat there again. Staff were very attentive, and the restaurant had plenty of space for large groups.

They have the best Cuban sandwich in town. In addition their authentic Cuban dishes can't be beat. If you get a chance, you really should stop in and give your taste buds a treat.

My family and I love this place for breakfast! They offer a great value and you can get something a little different than your average eggs and bacon if you wish. Their cuban coffee is to die for! I cant wait to go back for dinner sometime!

I wish I could give it 5 stars, but the atmosphere and restrooms could use some TLC. Aside from that, our waitress was good at recommendations. We had a ham/cheese empanada and chicken empanada and the chicken one was a little bland. We also had the Cuban sandwich which was really good. My husband had a steak sandwich which was... More

The food is good, the atmosphere and staff not the greatest. The wait staff is surly unless you are a male, then they can be nice as pie. The parking leaves a lot to be desired.

This place is authentic. They have 3 or more specials everyday of the week. Try the OX-tails. Superb...with mash taters and sweet plantains. Breakfast is a MUST....the price is right and they have some GREAT fruit drinks. Banana is one of my favorites. 5$ for breakfast with coffee and juice 7$ for lunch with two sides of your choice.....WOW. They... More
