The best place to grab a falafel wrap, a Philly cheese steak, pan con bistek, a handful of croquetas or a pulled pork and cheese, with a colada of Cuban coffee or a bottle of juice on the side. Croqueta Tuesdays means 25-cent croquettes -- the cheapest quickest lunch there is -- and the place is full of regulars, from... More

Ordered lunch on a Friday. I had the bacon cheeseburger combo and a grilled cheese on Cuban bread. The delivery was made in 30 minutes

I placed the order online like I always do. I ordered an italian sub with french fries. The gave me an italian wrap that was all soggy and the fries were hard and not cooked. Not 1st time they get order incorrect. Deliverty drivers expect 30% tip all the time and give you attitude if you dont.

Although right across st. From Hotel St Michel, I had some difficulty finding it. Went into lobby of bldg and asked attendant. Lobby isn't on Ponce de Leon, it's on side street across from hotel. Popular with law enforcement.

This place is right next to the Hotel St. Michel in Coral Gables (Alcazar and Ponce de Leon). It is a tiny coffee shop lined with cops. That should tell you something. The shop is located in an unassuming office building. As you enter the front door, go to your immediate left or you will miss it. The food is... More
