Expensive but good

This place is quaint and sweet. It was I think a tad expensive but we're in a touristy area- it's not surprising. PS I tried the Island Wrap (I think it was called) and it was delicious! Great pit stop for beach food/small meal.

My husband and I decided to eat here after reading the favorable reviews. Take it from 2 Albany, NY foodies...don't bother. I had the curry and grape chicken salad sandwich (touted as a local favorite). Yes, there were grapes but...what happened to the curry? The chicken was tough and the addition of iceberg lettuce added a bland crunch to an... More

Being born Cuban, raised Cuban I have been granted the opportunity to enjoy Cuban cuisine all my life, does it make me an expert. ..maybe. But inarguably I'm experienced. I gravitate to vendors claiming they are "known" for their Cuban sandwiches. And sometimes what I get instead is some adulterated fusion nonsense, which is okay, I like new things, but... More

What a sweet place to grab a morning coffee or custom sandwich. They also have a great selection of beach stuff, snacks and even cigars. The ladies that work are very courteous and attend to details.

Grabbed some sandwiches to take to the beach for lunch. Good subs and nice variety. Great place to stop if you are headed to Lighthouse Beach.

If you like seafood salad you really need to check this place out. Small storefront with a few tables and chairs outside but some great pita sandwiches and seafood salad. Not the cheapest in world but worth every penny.

Beans and rice are very good - cuban pork version esp. We used it as the base of a meal and added a cut veg salad to round things out.

This is a small hole in the wall neat the each with some very good sandwiches. There is seating outside on the porch, which came in hand since there was a rain storm just as we were finishing our lunch.
