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

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.

I loved it! it was huge, so make sure you either go with an appetite, a partner to share with, or do as i did, go... More
