4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Quick stop for the fast, hot food and delicious, original recipes. Vegan/vegetarian friendly. When they ask if you want cuban bread, just say yes.

“One of Gainesville's best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Great vegetarian options, yummy empanadas, but my favorite is the side of lentils with a tostada. SO GOOD. The quesitos are awesome too! Highly recommend!

“DELICIOUS AREPAS AND PRESSED CUBANS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We ate at this place 3 days in a row. The arepas are my favorite! They arent your typical Venezuelan arepa, they are a little sweeter but are freakin delicious!!! I ate mine with the ropa. The pressed cubans and burritos are amazing as well. I will always come back here

“Best media noche sandwich in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

My wife and I go here whenever we are craving good, cheap Cuban food. The counter service is pretty fast, even in the early hours of the morning when the bars close down for the night. Order a media noche....you won't be disappointed.

“Best and only place to eat at in Gville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

My brother turned me on to this bakery. They're closed on sundays which sucks. Open late and next to a few bars so thats nice. Their bread is awesome. When I go I always get pastries with cream cheese in them. PLUS its cheap!!!!! Im from Gville and I always make a special trip to Flaco's.
