Great Lunch Spot

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... read more

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!!

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

Stop here for a great Cuban sandwich and a bowl of Spanish Bean or Black Bean soup. Very tasty at an affordable price.

They have the absolute best old fashioned deviled crabs in the area. They are like the ones Whataburger carried here years ago. No great finesse, but yummy in taste. When my family comes from out of state, I have to get them some. I usually order a week ahead so they will be there when I pick them up.

I was treated by a friend to a fabulous lunch, mainly because I was the key to his transportation. The surroundings are very basic, there are no grand murals on the wall. There is no music or exotic floor shows, just plain good food. We both ordered the lunch special, a six inch Cuban pressed to order with an accompanying... More

Fast friendly service and great food. Several locations that make Cuban dining readily accessible. Long local history and loyal local following.
