Large portions

Good food and large portions. Very small indoor seating area. Many tables outside. Nightclub in area where many fights take place so stick to daylight dining. Service was excellent. Went with party of eight so tip included on bill.

I visited this place for the first time with a friend. We decided to dine inside because it was hot outside. First, the server took almost a half-hour to get to our table and the place was not busy at all. There was one other table and even they waited for a long time. The food took a long time... More

Heard good things about this place for awhile I was nearby & stopped in for Lunch. Happy & Attentive Staff with the busy Lunch Crowd. The food was fresh, well prepared & a very good value. Less than $20 for lunch for 2 !! Did I mention the Coffee was DELICIOUS !! Will be back again soon.

Situated in a strip mall on the north east corner of Millitary and Southern. Someone already mentioned that the interior seating is limited (very limited) but very clean. There are nice sized tables outside with umbrellas. Meals are around $14+. Lunch is a bargain at $4.99. The ceviche with tostones is to die for :) Everything is fresh...even the orange... More

My wife and I have been to this "restaurant" on several occasions, and I've left quite positive reviews about it in the past. We attempted to have some lunch there recently. The inside dining area is quite small, and they have a plethora of outside tables for seating. We typically spend about $50+ on lunch. Their prices are reasonable, we... More

We were craving mofongo (smashed green plantains with garlic and chicharrones) and I remembered I had seen it on Don Cafe's menu at one time. I am SO glad we decided to go there for dinner! My husband had the roast pork dinner, and I had the mofongo with churrasco steak and both entrees were delicious!

Ive eaten at Don Cafe several times before including today and never have left a review. My lunch today was absolutely fantastic. Friendly fast service, great coffee, and the best Fricase de pollo that I can remember. Perfectly cooked in a wonderful sauce served with black beans, rice and plantons. Big portion priced very fair.

I travel all over the world. I can not find better coffee anywhere, whether Europe or South America. I miss it and the first thing upon my return I go for my coffee and the friendly athmosphere. As to their food? The best in South Florida! Especially their soups, chick pea(garbanzo), white bean soup(frijoles blanco), split pea(chicharos) and lentils(lenteja). Their... More
