My husband, mother in law, and I just had the most wonderful lunch at Mi Apa! We came to the area to visit my brother in law and enjoy the springs, and we will be returning to eat here next time we visit for sure! I thoroughly enjoyed the vegetarian plate with black beans, yellow rice, sweet plantains and avacado.... More

Stopped in for lunch while driving from Tampa to North Carolina- just a mile from I 75-but so glad we found it! Best Cuban sandwich I have ever had! The bread and pastries were made in-house and were delicious! If you have a chance to try their food, do!

My coworkers and I like to visit Mi Apa's for lunch. Food is always fresh and tasty. Service has always been very good. The Cuban and Miami sandwiches are my favorite but they have several yummy menu items to choose from. I wish they included fries with the sandwich but you have to purchase them separately. Definitely not a deal... More

This place is... More

Real good cuban food. Palomilla stake with red beans is delicious. Cuban sandwich pretty good. Tres leches for dessert is the best! All kind of sodas

Thoroughly surprised. This was my first experience with cuban food. I am very picky. Everything I ate was great. I had the Picadillo/ ground beef. The flavors were so diverse yet complementary. Sweet and savory. The atmosphere is simple. Latin music in the background. 5 tv's with beach scenes. Best servers I've had my entire time in Florida. The prices... More

We ate here after a business meeting. Small location and is short on seating during lunch rush. I had the pulled pork Cuban style and the others had the Cuban sandwich. All were delicious. Would definitely eat here again

I ordered the lechon (pulled pork cuban style) with arroz moro (rice with beans). The meat was moist, tender and very tasty. Pleasant staff makes this my new go to lunch venue in Alachua.

Love this places Cuban sandwiches! My husband always gets the chicken and rice with black beans and loves it. Is very busy at lunch so make sure to go early. Eat here often :).
