The food was good but watch your credit card statement. Our bill was $33.92 but the charge on our cc statement was $37.92.

We came for lunch and left a bit disappointed.

Stopped by with relatives and had a meal of roast pork with plantains and rice and beans. Everything with delicious. Sangria and tres leches cake made the meal complete. Have eaten there about 5 times and food never disappoints. Will definitely return

Found this place just walking around. On a street that does not allow motor vehicles, so eating out side is very pleasant. Good food and friendly staff.

My wife and I stopped at La Herencia Cafe for lunch during our visit to St Augustine and shared their Cuban Sandwich. It was the best I've ever had. Previously, the el Segundo Central Bakery in Ybor City was the best but La Herencia surpassed them. We also had two sides with the sandwich, a really great home made potato... More
