Yes, just 2 parking spaces in front. This little gem is located in a strip center so squint to find it (it faces 8th street just east of the freeway. But definitely worth the hunt. I was expecting a very basic place but this place exudes hip Havana atmosphere. Loved our Cuban sandwich, although they did not have the sweeter... More

This place got great reviews so we tried it and it was incredible. The food is all local and tastes amazing-the La Calena sandwhich was wonderful and the empanadas were the best I have ever had. We had some trouble finding it at first because it is a small place but it was worth the hunt. It is directly across... More

Great breakfast lunch and a little wine beer and tapas after work. The staff is very good. The sandwiches are the best. Check it out.

Mmm . . . great fresh juice -- and reasonably priced. We enjoyed tall glasses of lilikoi/passion fruit juice. Espresso looks good, too. Small but very nice and homey space to relax with friends -- interesting books to look at, too.

We came here just based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. We were having a fun day in Miami and needed a place to grab a lunch and this location and the food appealed to us. There is no exaggerating about other reviewers to give 5 stars to this restaurant. People, this place is just awesome! Husband ordered a Cuban sandwich... More

The only bad thing I have to say about this place is that you cannot see the sign outside! Need to make it brighter. Coffee and Cuban sandwiches were great!!!

Quaint strip mall location serving amazing Cuban fare. Well worth a trip. Both the regular Cuban and the one on sweet bread was amazing. Great find!

I've never had Cuban food before so I have nothing to compare it to. But I am extremely picky and I'm a comfort food type of girl so I was hesitant. It was delicious! We will def come back if we are in Miami again.
