Has to be the best Cuban in town, hot pressed just as you would expect. Chicken and yellow rice is excellent black beans and rice also one of my favorites. Cheap, fast for dining in can be busy during lunch be there before 1:00pm if you expect to have any chicken and yellow rice as when they run out of... More

The place makes great Cubans and soups. That is what they are known for and they do nothing more than that. Hence, if you want great soup or a Cuban...or combo of each, this is your place. If you want anything else, continue on.

They have a simple menu, but the food is great! The Cuban is delicious and it comes with a side. My son ordered a chicken and yellow rice side order and it was a meal in itself. He was stuffed afterwards. The prices are cheap and they have a special for around 5 bucks that comes with a drink also.

I was very disappointed with Silver Ring Café. I tried the Cuban Sandwich, Black Bean Soup, and the Deviled Crab. The sandwich was ok but nothing special. The sandwich itself did not have much flavor and you could get a better sandwich at most any other restaurant or grocery store in the area. The black bean soup was watery and... More

This place is amazing. Make sure to try their potato balls. They are out of this world. Just make sure you have cash because they don't take cards. Trust me though, it is worth it!!

I took my family to the Silver Ring Cafe for lunch based on the incredible reviews given to the place by my brother-in-law, who is from Lakeland. It's a nice little place and it's easy to see why it's been a local favorite for decades. The Cuban sandwich was good and cheap, but nothing to really write home about. I'd... More

We were told by the locals to not miss this Café, and we are glad that we didn't. We got so many good recommendations on this place, that we actually drove back up from Seffner to eat lunch here (about a 30 mile drive), and we were not disappointed. The staff (which were Cubans) were very friendly, and I enjoyed... More

We have visited the city numerous times and when passing this place across from Munn Park we talked about trying it. Opened in 1947 it has been around a long time. Mostly sandwiches and soups. Different sizes of Cuban sandwiches at reasonable prices. Good value combo of Cuban sandwhich, soup or side and soft drink for only $6.15. Cuban sandwiches... More

Mediocre Cuban sandwiches. I would be very suspicious of the meat on the Cubans as they are premade. I'm really on the fence here, but the restaurant is just scary dirty. The employees making the sandwiches just don't look clean. I'm sorry to say that as they were very nice, but it is what it is. It's Lakeland, Florida so... More
