My favorite place to eat in St. Pete! Love the Cuban and Levon, also the pollo asada and tempeh (veggie version). Cute, outdoor cafe on central ave and great beer selection. Always friendly staff :)

Amazing food and service!!! We had dinner with our two boys and it was great. We live in NC but If we lived anywhere near Bodega we would be there very often.

This little eatery has a walk up window to order from, with a few tables outside for eating. We get take out. They have the best Cubans and slaws around. Not much of an attention getter but you won't be disappointed stopping here.

Three of us went in search of the best Cuban in the area. This was our third contender this week. My husband and son thought it was the best so far and give it a top rating. I was less impressed but put it at good. They like the pressed bread, the amount of meat and pickles, and the sauce.... More

Bodega Comida Cantina Cafe is one of those small places you could drive by and not see it, but it's worth looking for. The inside seating is a narrow food counter that makes it a bright but intimate space. You're elbow to elbow with others but it's not crowded and is fun. A relative and native to St. Petersburg said... More

Not authentic, pricey as hell Get a much better authentic cuban off 54th ave for half that price Half a sandwhich for 10 dollars they want 5 dollars for a cortadito which is a sip of coffee

What does a small place like this have to offer? Very tasty Cuban sandwich, better than you can imagine.The place is nothing sexy, but don't let that turn you away. It is clean and they have outdoor seating in the back. A must try....

I haven't found a lot of Cuban food in St Petersburg but what we found in the Bodega more than makes up for it. Their Lechon sandwich is crunchy on the outside, decadent in the middle. It's savory, tangy and sweet. The perfect mojo marinade. Depending on how hungry you are one sandwich is enough for two to share.
