Great place to enjoy the Cafecito. The sandwiches are out of control good. The beer wine etc... Is all good. Can't wait till the next local is open. Ask for Carlos he and his staff will take care of you.

I ate the guajiro and it was an excellent pork sandwich!! Pork with Mojo sauce , moist pulled pork. The sandwich was to die for. They also have quesitos, pasteleros de carne, guayaba... Service was excellent as well , the waitress and the owner were very nice.

I was visiting Miami and in search of the best Cuban Pork Sandwich in town, my friendly hotel staff didn't hesitate to point me in the direction of this cafe. It is in a very unassuming corner spot with a walk-up window and a real cafe feel inside. You can tell this is super-authentic Cuban food with an amazing sandwich.

From the outside the cafe doesn't look that impressive and is located in an unassuming small plaza. However, once we stepped inside we were greeted by friendly staff and a menu offering just all the right stuff. I've tried Cuban coffee in many other cafes and restaurants but none other beats this little cafe. The coffee has just the right... More

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
