went in here for breakfast. Not a huge choice but more than adequate and excellent value. Try the Cuban coffee! Staff were friendly, service was very efficient. Looked like a place where the locals go, always a good sign.

My husband and I go for breakfast. Their breakfast special is $4.25 for 3 eggs anyway, bacon/ham/sausage, and bread. It's family owned by Cubans. Great cafe con leche (cuban coffee with milk) and it's included in the special. They also have a bakery and fresh juices. Great food and other breakfast options too. Also open for lunch and dinner.

Great food and really inexpensive. Service can be a little slow. But the food makes up for it. We ate twice in four days and quality was the same each day.

This is a local restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We enjoyed a great breakfast deal. Would you believe three eggs, lots of bacon, orange juice, coffee and Cuban bread for $4.99? We had a table for four and everyone was happy with their meal. The waiter was great. I would like to try them for dinner some day.

We went to El Mambo with friends for a late morning breakfast. I'm a lover of Cuban coffee, however found the coffee to be so so. I've only eaten breakfast here. It was average, as well...something you can find in any local restaurant. I have yet to find a local Cuban restaurant the 'wow's' me with their breakfast and coffee.... More

If your Mom cooks Cuban, go to her house. I've eaten at better local eateries in Miami and Tampa. This is an excellent local place in Cape Coral, the locals come in for lechon on the weekends. The best huevos fritos con bacon, café, cubano o leche for breakfast. Best value for home cooking in this area, so I give... More

Visited El Mambo with father-in-law during visit to Cape. Very casual atmosphere (utensils wrapped in plastic cover). It does have a great breakfast with choice of eggs, meat and cuban bread/toast for those on a budget. Cuban coffee is also a must (similar to cafe latte). We have frequented this restaurant for breakfast and have not been disappointed. The front... More

I went there few days ago, and I ussually ask for the same thing which is the pork sandwich, well, after waiting a few I didn't get what I wanted, I got another meat instead of the pork. I always like to go to Mambos, it's nice and the food is great, I don't know what happened that afternoon they... More
