great little, authentic, Cuban restaurant. Stopped there on a food tour and will be back for breakfast tomorrow. Great Cuban coffee and authentic Cuban sandwiches with roasted pork. Very friendly staff, great food and non toruisty prices. A must go to.

Nice ambience to be able to eat outside on the sidewalk. Had the pork dinner. Tender and good tasting. Also had the pulled pork dinner. That was very good. Service was great. Quanity was more than enough. Thought they should have included a basket of sliced cuban bread to go with their dinners.

With the numerous choices in this amazing Old Town, we are glad we found this restaurant. Friendly service, good food and of coarse great atmosphere. My wife had the hot pressed Cuban sandwich and she swears by it.

We were pleasantly greeted when we walked in and seated at a table right away. The service was very friendly and quick. My cuban sandwich was perfectly pressed and perfectly made, it was delicious! I love it when I go into a restaurant or shop or place of service and truly feel appreciated as a customer. La Herencia Cafe really... More

Great food and service. The best coffee and pastries in town! Plenty of outside tables and awesome service. The owner even came to check on our table. Wonderful little spot that was not overpriced.

I had a Cuban sandwich, my sister had Empanadas. Both were excellent. The Empanadas were well executed, perfectly seasoned, not greasy at all. The Cuban was delicious and generously portioned. We both got black beans and rice for sides and they were perfect. Our server was attentive without being intrusive, was friendly and knew the menu thoroughly. A definite return... More

Great food! We came with 10 people and they weren't scared to help us like some places do. I had the club sandwich and it was amazing! One of my friends had the club and he said it was good too. OMG the plantains were amazing! The sangria was not very good. I would rate it a 2 out of... More

My group had pressed sandwiches and all were great. The chicken pesto is fabulous. They come with sides - I had black beans and rice but potatoes or sweet plantains are available. With inside or outside seating, the chef and server were eager to please. And a local showed me where to park close by so I will definitely return... More

We wee in town for the weekend and heard good things about the restaurant. Went ther on a Saturday night. We were disappointed with the food. The 2 house specialties we ordered, the Picadilla and pork special were ok but nothing special. My Picadilla tested like basic ground meat with some onion and a little spice. I put about a... More
