On vacation to the keys and a local told us to come here. We God two Cubans and Margaritas. We were seated immediately and the server was so nice. It's outside seating only but who cares when you have great music and amazing food. Great place altogether. I would definitely come back here.

Delicious Cuban bread breakfast sandwiches. Wonderful Cuban coffee drinks (contradito, iced cafe con leche were great starts to the day). Mango Mix smoothie was super fresh. Worth the wait in line for both food and coffee.

I'm not a sandwich lover & never have been but we read about this place on Tripadvisor and thought we'd give it a go! I'm so glad we did as it was 10/10! Best sandwiches I've ever eaten in my life; so so tasty! A must try! Kids loved it too although they shared as the sandwiches are huge!

Doesn't look like much. However, the sandwiches were great. The Cuban Mix was a delicious mixture of flavors. No real place to sit and eat, a few benches. Really enjoyed the Cuban coffee.

The staff was very friendly, helpful and informative. The coffee drinks are so damn good! Starbucks Who?! They beat them hands down and have sandwiches that match the wonderful flavors of the area.
