Cobblestone street that's 8 feet wide will lead you to La Herencia where Cubano food will please even the pickiest of eaters. Housed in a 18th century building, with seating inside and outside, offering ambiance and good food. Delicious!

We've been here a few times and both the service and food have been consistently exceptional. Don't forget to try the Cuban coffee. ..this is quickly becoming one of our favorite cafes in town.

Great place for a sandwich & a beer on the most scenic street in town. Good variety of Cuban sandwiches, which come with a side (particularly tasty plantains). The outdoor tables are on a quiet cobblestone street of galleries & cafés.

I've been visiting this place with my girlfriend for the past 2 something years. Back then, I used to love this little "cuban" restaurant. I remember the owner was there pretty much every Sunday when we stopped by to have luncc, very nice lady. But it's not the same anymore, the last couple of visits I haven't been impressed anymore,...
