This place offers an eclectic mix of rise bowls (and other things). I had the Caribbean Bowl with chicken thighs, amazing. Spouse had the three bean bow, really good. I would advise that you arrive early, as the word is out and the seating (all outside) fills up fast. You order inside and they bring you your food. No "waiters"... More

This place was ranked number one on trip advisor so I had to try it out. The food was very good. My boyfriend and I both got sandwiches. The taste was perfect. The food was reasonably priced as well since a lot of the places are expensive. There is only outdoor seating with this option so keep that in mind.

I dream of the tofu sandwich and corn while sitting in the Michigan winters. I wish half sandwiches were offered. Corn and a half sandwich would be the perfect meal size!!!

I love sandwiches; the Presser was the Ferrari of a sandwich. The Caribbean latin take on the cuban takes it to another level - sandwich level that is! My wife had a pork rice bowl that was amazing. Go!

Stopped for lunch, no reservations taken. You order inside and can eat on-site outside (limited seating) or bring home (or anywhere else). Once you order at the counter you go outside and they will bring your meal (in a styrophome take out box) to you. We ordered the West Caribbean Bowl which was very good and highly recommended, it has... More

We went there twice for lunch. The food is amazingly delicious no matter what you ordered. We had a family group of seven both days and we must have tried half the items on the menu - everything amazed us. The food can be prepared to individual liking of 'hot and spicy'. The seafood is fresh - fish, shrimp, scallops,... More

I went to Bien last year, but this time I enjoyed it much more! The food is great. We ordered the Caribbean Roast sandwich and split it. Super super tasty! Everything is great about this sandwich- including the amazing onions, sauce, bread, etc. Yum!! This time I also ordered the fire roasted corn, which was also very very tasty. I... More

We came here with the whole family, everyone ordered something different and everyone loved what they ordered! "Best steak sandwich ever", "best Caribbean plate", "best shrimp in red sauce".... So this place seems to have lived up to our expectations!! Great place for lunch! Everyone has to try this place at least once!!
